The Benefits of a Smaller Wedding

Posted on November 15, 2020 by Rob Hale

Some people dream of large and lavish weddings with every seat filled by family (close and extended) and friends (new and old). Some people even go so far as to go into debt to have the massive wedding they’ve always wanted and dreamed of. If that’s your dream, we don’t want to take it away from you, and we want you to enjoy your beautiful and love-filled day. However, we would like to discuss the benefits of having a smaller wedding — the biggest one being that you can put the money you save from the wedding towards an unforgettable honeymoon.

By choosing a smaller wedding, you save money at every turn. You won’t have to pay the caterers since they won’t need to cook as many meals or appetizers. You can save money at the bar since you won’t have as many guests running up the tab (especially if it’s an open bar). You also have access to more venues and don’t need to shell out as much to reserve large halls to accommodate your massive guest list. Any piece of the wedding cost greatly reduces once you choose the route of a smaller wedding.

With that additional budget, you can then put it towards a longer and/or more lavish honeymoon to relax and enjoy your first days or weeks together as a married couple. You can choose to travel to more exotic locations, farther away, extend your stay, upgrade your lodging, or even all of the above. However, it really comes down to your choice and preference. Would you rather spend all of your money for one day to have everyone you know and their guests to watch the event, or would you prefer to get away and live lavishly in a foreign place to start your married life strongly and healthfully?

Similar to a more luxurious honeymoon, by choosing a smaller wedding, you can use the funds you would have on a large wedding to make the smaller event even more beautiful than you could have imagined (and still enjoy that extended dream honeymoon together afterward). Upgrade the meal, the flower arrangement, or the venue — it’s all up to you!

Say the money isn’t an option, though. Another incredible benefit of having a smaller wedding is the massive amount of stress it removes from your plate. It’s easier to find a venue to accommodate a select gathering; you don’t need to worry about so many meal options; you don’t need to worry about as many plus ones, seating arrangements, or potential drama. Even if there wouldn’t be drama with a larger crowd, having a smaller guest list means that you can spend more time with your guests and have a more intimate day and enjoy their company, rather than run around trying to say “Hi” to everyone for 15 seconds each.
