Hi there lovely bees~! *waves*
Have been a long time lurker so I thought I should join and introduce myself. I’ve been engaged since late last year to a lovely man. Ring photos below! (sorry if they’re a bit big)
Just wanted to know how many bees here are opting for an intimate ceremony/reception (ie less than 50 people)? I would love to hear your thoughts! x

@MissMinette:Welcome to Wedding Bee and Congratulations! Very beautiful ring! I had an intimate wedding of about 35 people. It was beautiful and perfect even though there were some mishaps/imperfections lol. Did you have any specific questions?

That ring is blinding! 🙂 And very pretty! Congratulations!
I’d like a small wedding like that, but with both our families combined, it’s gonna be a bit bigger, haha.
ETA: I really do like your ring. I have a headache and can’t decide if my comment sounds rude? I’m sorry if it does!

@MissMinette: Hello and welcome to the Hive! Congratulations to you and your FI! Your ring is beautiful, kudos to your Fiance (and maybe you) for picking that ring out!
An intimate wedding is something we can’t do, even just our families alone equals more than 50 people! We’re shooting to keep it 200 and under.

Welcome to the Hive and congratulations on your engagement. That is a gorgeous ring! I won’t be much help when it comes to small weddings as our will have over 200 guests but I know that there’s plenty of Bees that had a small and intimate wedding. Can’t wait to hear all about your planning.

Love the ring! I suits your hand so well 🙂
I am opting for an intimate wedding. I originally wanted less than 40 but as my mom and dad are paying for it and wanted some of their friends ot be there, I caved and agreed to less than 60 (But really, it will be right around the 50 mark because we have about 10 relatives who are too elderly or ill to travel across the country).
If you need any help, I can help the best I can! I have only been engaged a week and a bit, but I have quickly learned the ups and downs of a small wedding, as well as how much it friggen COSTS! I thought small meant cheap, but small just means slightly cheaper. I am also going to be a DIY frugal bride and am ordering my dress from China.
If you have any questions about what I have figured out, feel free to message me 🙂

Your ring is beautiful! Welcome and congratulations! We are having an intimate wedding. it will either be just our parents and our son (7 people) or perhaps siblings and their significant others (in that case 16 people). Either way, probably smaller than you are going! Ceremony at our house, in our back yard. Reception will be depending on which direction we go with who is invited.

@MissMinette: welcome! i lurked forever too before joining. i’m NOT engaged yet so it seemed like a little crazy. anyway, your ring is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL! you Fiance did a great job 🙂 as far as intimate ceremonies, we were about to have one for 50 people in the family church, and a reception or dinner at my SO’s families house. Very low-key, I was going to wear a short simple dress. A few months before the event, we decided together that there is no rush and we are going to go the more traditional route with the big ceremony and reception! I wish I could do both 🙂

Welcome to the Hive! Your ring is lovely. My reception will be smaller, but not as small as 50. Maybe closer to 75. I think it will still have an intimate feel since most people have known us our whole lives (family and neighbours) with only our closest friends included as well. I love the idea of smaller weddings, good luck with all your planning!

your ring is gorgeous. Congrats! Also, I am having a pretty small wedding of around 75 people. I just can’t imagine having a huge wedding.

Your ring is gorgeous!! Doesn’t it feel weird to wear it? It took me forever to get used to mine. I got engaged last February and I still don’t feel comfortable wearing it when I sleep at night

@AubByAub: no, not at all and thank you! Fiance and I have big families as well so if we do a small wedding it will most likely be immediate family only 🙂
