When it comes to planning your wedding, fewer people can mean a more personal celebration. You’ve got more time to spend with your wedding party, your guests can really get to know one another and you can pay attention to those finer details that make your wedding truly memorable.
Here’s five reasons why an intimate wedding might be right for you.
Keep to a smaller budget
Deciding to have a smaller, intimate celebration can work wonders on your wedding budget. Maybe you’d rather put the money towards building your future, such as a down payment for your first house together, a once in a lifetime honeymoon or simply have more to spend on those finer wedding details.
A licence to splurge
Some couples like to have a small guest list, not because their budget is small, but because it allows them to splash out on other things. This could be a five-piece jazz band in the foyer of Dunglass House or it could be splashing out on the wedding dress of your dreams.
Treat your guests well
Personalised details are more manageable when there’s less people to think about. Your guests can truly relax and enjoy every moment of your nuptials without getting caught up in the chaos. There are so many ways you can add that extra wow factor and an added bonus is that you get to cut down on the thank you cards.
Just because you’re saving money elsewhere doesn’t mean you can’t splurge on your special day. Why not treat your guests to an indulgent wedding breakfast served with the finest wines.

Quality time with the ones you love
Ultimately getting married is not only the joining of two people but the coming together and merging of friends and family. With a smaller guest list, you’ll have more time to spend with those closest to you and your guests will have more time to get to know one another.
How many times have you been to a wedding where you’ve hardly spoken to the bride or groom? Create memories that you’ll cherish with your loved ones and take your time to really catch up with your guests.
