Small Weddings ? Benefits From Having One

Aug 9, 2008
There are several reasons for why couples are now opting for much smaller weddings rather than big and lavish ones. The biggest problem with a large wedding is the cost and often couples find themselves still paying for it long after it has taken place.

Although elaborate and expensive have been the fashion for many years now because of all the celebrity ones , smaller weddings are now starting to become fashionable once more. Certainly if you are looking for a wedding that is more personal and intimate this is the ideal one for you.

However, just because your wedding is small does not mean it needs to be informal, it does not even have to be cheap or simple. But a small wedding is certainly not going to cost as much if you were going for something which large numbers of guests attending.

When we talk about small weddings we are not talking about the location, or how much the food etc., costs we are talking about the number of guests that the bride and groom invite. These kinds of weddings are often restricted to close family members and friends of the couple who are getting married.

Because the guest numbers are much smaller with this wedding the bride and groom are able to focus more of their time and energy into the areas of their wedding that they consider to be important. Certainly this may well mean that they are able to actually have their wedding and honeymoon abroad rather than at home.

Certainly more and more people who choose a small wedding have a much larger selection of destinations where this happy event can take place. Along with the Caribbean many couples are choosing some unique places for their weddings to take place in. Some couples go for the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas whilst others have had theirs at an old castle or at a mountain lodge.

If you really want to be saving money on your wedding day and have it at home instead there are certain things one can do to save on the costs. The majority of costs for a wedding are taken up by the reception because in many cases a couple will hire a room or hold it in a hotel. But instead to save money why not arrange for the reception to be held at a family member's home or at a restaurant that the bride and groom like.

Small weddings can be as simple or as elaborate as the couple getting married want them to be. But what kind of small wedding they choose will depend on how much they are willing to spend on it. What they should remember however is that at the end of the day this is their special event and should be one that they and their guests will enjoy and remember with fondest in the future.
