Your wedding day is just that— YOUR wedding day. While a lot of us find ourselves ultimately trying to plan our wedding based on what everyone else wants, we always need to remember that its OUR big day, and we can celebrate it how we want.
A lot of women also tend to get caught up in thinking they have to go all out and have a huge wedding bash that lasts all day long, with all these different memorable things, but at the end of the day, if you want to have a smaller wedding, that's 1,000% okay. Sometimes, the smaller weddings end up even more memorable than the big ones! Here are 10 benefits to a smaller wedding you might not have thought of:
Intimate atmosphere: A small wedding gives you the opportunity to create an intimate atmosphere that is focused more on you and your spouse and your commitment to one another than on the size of the event. This can be especially meaningful for couples who want to keep the wedding celebration more low-key and intimate.
Intimate guest list: With a smaller wedding, you can create a guest list that is tailored specifically to your closest friends and family. This can make the event more meaningful and allow you and your spouse to truly enjoy the company of those who are most special to you on your wedding day.
Cost-effective: Planning a small wedding can be much more cost effective than having a large event in most cases. You can save money on the venue, catering, flowers, decorations, and more.
Personal decorations: When planning a small wedding, you can get creative with decorations and put a personal touch on everything. You can choose decorations that reflect your style as a couple, rather than having to worry about pleasing a large crowd of guests.
Personalized menu: With a smaller wedding, you can create a menu that is tailored specifically to your tastes and the tastes of your guests. This can make the event more special and memorable.

More time to enjoy the day: With a smaller wedding, you and your soon-to-be-spouse can spend more time enjoying the day and spending time with your guests. There won’t be as many details to worry about and you can focus on having a great time.
Unique venue: With a smaller wedding, you can get creative with the venue and choose something unique and special. You can choose a venue that reflects your personalities and interests as a couple.
