When it comes to planning a wedding, there are so many aspects of the ceremony and reception to consider. The location, flowers, food, and more are all important parts of the day, but so is the number of guests you invite. Depending on how large your family or circle of friends is, you may already have a predetermined number in mind. However, there is always some wiggle room depending on whether you want the event to be large or small. We’re here to go over some of the benefits of both options.
One of the best reasons to have a small wedding is to make it feel more intimate for everyone involved. You can choose to just invite your closest friends and family members; ensuring distant relatives or friends you are out of touch with don’t feel left out. A small wedding also gives you more room to personalize things. From the invitations to the food, you can spend more time making sure everything is just right for the small group of people in attendance.
Of course, larger weddings are also great options, especially if you don’t want anyone to feel left out. Having a large wedding allows you to really make it feel like a huge, celebratory event. You will have a chance to share the special day with friends and family members who you haven’t connected with in years and you may even get a chance to see some new cousins or friends’ kids who you’ve never met before.
The size of your guest list is up to you and your partner, so spend some time figuring out how many people is the right fit for your wedding!
