After Going To Numerous Weddings, I've Decided I Definitely Will Have A Small Wedding

If you want a big wedding, check out these benefits of a small one first.

After Going To Numerous Weddings, I've Decided I Definitely Will Have A Small Wedding
Katrina Roshak

Ever since I was young I wanted a big wedding. Just like ones you would see in a princess story. Now that I'm older, that has changed. Just recently, my dreams of a big wedding turned into dreams of a small one. Here's why:

It will be more intimate.

Small weddings make it easier to focus on your significant other instead of all of your guests. You won't have to worry about going to all 100 tables trying to greet everyone who came. After all, the main point of a wedding is to celebrate the love between the couple.

You will save tons of money.

I never knew how much weddings cost until my siblings started getting married. Think about inviting 500 people, then add in entrees, dessert, and gift bags. That's a lot of money. Having a small wedding will let you spend money on what's necessary. Also, it will allow you to save more money for your future.

It won't be overwhelming.

I've been to weddings where I'm not the one managing it but even I feel overwhelmed. There's so many people, endless courses of food, and endless speeches. With a small wedding, you can focus on your closest friends and family. Both you and your guests will feel relaxed and comfortable.

You won't have to explain why some people didn't get invited.

If you have a small wedding, you won't have to invite everyone. In a small wedding, you'll most likely know exactly who you want to invite and won't have to worry about your friend's great uncle who you have met once.

Less stress, more fun.

Planning a big wedding can be very stressful, especially if you don't have a wedding planner. You have to cater to hundreds of guests, make sure there's enough food, seating, and more. With small weddings, you have a reasonable headcount with reasonable expectations. A smaller wedding will let you have more fun instead of worrying about guests.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
