Alicia Fanning of All Women Stalk lists a few signs that show a small wedding may be right for you:

  1. You don't like big crowds: If you don’t like crowds then a small wedding may be right for you. You do not want to spend your wedding day so upset that you can’t enjoy it. Of course some nervousness is to be expected, but if you feel completely overwhelmed at the prospect of a big crowd then it might be best to consider a smaller #wedding. What you and your fiancé want is what matters most here.

  2. You don't care about a big wedding: Sometimes you feel pressured into having a big wedding when it really isn’t what you want at all. It may be that it has always been your mother’s dream that you have a big wedding instead of your own. You may have other family pressure weighing in on you. Although we do want to care about the feelings of others, when it comes down to it, your #wedding is yours. Your feelings and those of your fiancé are what you should most consider.

  3. You don't have the budget for a big wedding: Let’s be honest. A big #wedding has a big price tag. Big weddings cost a lot of #money. The bigger they are, the more you should plan on spending. If you don’t have the budget for a big wedding, it may be #time to consider having a smaller one.

  4. Family tensions are mounting: Weddings should be something that brings your family together. Unfortunately, sometimes they drive families apart. A wedding can bring out some strong opinions in your family members. If it is getting too overwhelming for you to deal with the family tension, it may be #time to scale back. A smaller #wedding may be the solution.

  5. You prefer smaller circles: Some people love to be in the midst of a crowd and that is wonderful for them. They are energized by interacting with a lot of people. Some #people prefer to have a smaller circle of friends to interact with. If that is the case with you, then you might prefer the atmosphere at a smaller, more intimate wedding. You want your #wedding to have an atmosphere that makes you feel good.

  6. You have always dreamed of a small wedding: Maybe you have always dreamed of a small wedding. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. There can be something very romantic about a small wedding. It is a different kind of romance than with a big #wedding and that is okay. It is your day so you should have what you want.

  7. You don't want to take the time to plan: Maybe you want to be married soon. You may not want to take the time to plan a big wedding. A big wedding can be absolutely marvelous but the fact is that it does take a lot of #time and work to plan. This should be all about you. If being married soon is more important to you than having a big #wedding then that is exactly what you should choose.
