Big isn’t always better. For more and more couples, inviting that weird guy from your fiancé’s work isn’t necessarily part of the most special day of their lives. Sometimes keeping it small but doing it really well is the better option.
Here are five reasons why.
Only invite your nearest and dearest
When you start compiling your guest list, it can get out of hand. If one set of distant cousins is invited, the other bunch have to come to. So why not keep it lean and invite the people you really want to celebrate with you. Close friends and immediate family only.
Feel more relaxed
This a big day but you want to enjoy it too. After all, it’s your party. So why spend hours having the same conversation with hundreds of people? Fewer people means more time with the ones you love.
Spreading your budget too thin means the quality is diluted. Focus it more clearly and you can splash out on things you really want.
Freedom to customise
Bigger weddings mean there’s less scope to put your own stamp on it. Keep it small and you’ve got compete control over the details.
There are only so many beautiful venues that can hold 300 people – even in Portugal. With a smaller guest list you can expand your event horizons.
