The advantages of having a small wedding

Having a small wedding

The spread of COVID-19 has changed a lot of plans this year. For engaged couples, the pandemic—and resulting social distancing guidelines—brings up the question of whether they should move forward with their wedding plans. Many people have postponed or fully canceled their 2022 weddings, but these aren’t the only options for you and your spouse-to-be. If you still want to move forward with wedding plans, consider holding a small ceremony and reception. Smaller weddings make it easier for you and your guests to practice social distancing while celebrating one of the happiest days of your life. If you’re trying to keep your big day on the calendar this year, consider these advantages of having a small wedding.

A smaller wedding means a shorter guest list, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Fewer people at your ceremony and reception mean you get to spend more time with everyone. Instead of rushing around in an attempt to greet all the guests before the end of the day, you can spend quality time with everyone in attendance. A smaller gathering also makes it easier for your friends and family to get to know each other better rather than keeping to themselves in a large crowd.


Having fewer guests also means you don’t have to worry about fitting everyone comfortably into your venue. Remember, just because your wedding is small doesn’t mean you have to book a tiny space. You can hold your wedding in a larger venue and have all the space you need to get creative with room arrangements, décor, and other details. You’ll also have the room to establish safe social distancing rules for yourself and your guests.


One of the nicest advantages of having a small wedding is that you don’t have to stress as much over the details. With fewer invitations and seating arrangements to manage, fewer people to worry about, and smaller food and decoration orders, you can turn your attention to less stressful things. With less pressure on your shoulders, you can enjoy yourself more and worry less as you prepare for the big day.

As you can see, having a small wedding doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a memorable experience. You can still plan an incredible day with all the best arrangements, decorations, and people around you. If you’re ready to plan your small, social-distancing wedding, Wedding Events wants to help.
