Big Vs. Small: Your Big Day's Invite List

One of the first orders of business that you have to decide when planning your wedding is how many people are you going to invite. How big does your venue need to be? How much food will you have to order? How many chairs and tables will you need? What amount of favors needs to be ordered? Before you can answer any of these questions, you need to decide which people you want to be a part of your special day.

Big and small weddings each have their own pros and cons. To each person, these different pros and cons may hold different weights of importance. When deciding whether or not to make your wedding big or small, here are a few pros and cons to help you choose!

Pros:

  • Getting to share your special day with more people
  • You don’t have to shave guests from the list
  • More gifts and cards
  • Involve more people in your special day
  • Creates a more lively atmosphere

Cons:

  • Spending more money in certain areas to accommodate more guests
  • Not getting to spend as much one on one time with your guests and having to play more of a hostess role
  • More details to plan and stress about

Pros:

  • More time with the people who attend
  • Reduce certain costs
  • More intimate feel
  • Less to plan and stress
  • Let the people you invite know how special they are to you

Cons:

  • May have to cut people you would’ve liked to be there
  • Possibility of offending some who are not invited
  • Less of a “party” atmosphere

Whether your wedding is 400 or 4 guests, it will be what you make it. Think about the feel that you want for your wedding, the money you want to spend and thetime you want to invest in it and choose the size that fits you like the perfect pair of shoes. To some, the perfect wedding may be escaping with the few people closest to you for a destination wedding. Others may want to use the largest reception hall in their hometown and invite every person they know. Listen to your heart and pick the style that will make your special day exactly what you want it to be with the exact people you want their with you!
