My wedding is November 9, 2013 in Las Vegas. We knew we wanted small, but suddenly we just had about 10 people un-RSVP after they RSVP’d. So now we have 22 people including me and the fiance. I am having our reception at a restaurant in a private area. We put a deposit on a huge cake (bc I wanted 3 tiers) and on a photobooth. Is it completely ridiculous to have such a small wedding where I have all these extravagant things like a photobooth? I am freaking out and rethinking our whole reception. Any input??

@ElleAye: have you heard about doing a faux tier in a cake so you’re not paying for WAY more cake than you need, but still have the look of a giant wedding cake?
just relax about your details. you get to have an even more intimate wedding, and really get to spend time with them, take silly photos with all of them. get excited 🙂

It is totally normal to get stressed just before the wedding and worry about all the details. The only thing I can say is, make your wedding about you and your fiance. Don’t make your decisions based on what you think you should do, or what you think other people are going to think. Do what makes you happy. You are only going to get to do it once, so make it about you & your fiance, and what you both want. All the best! I am sure it will be perfect.

I agree with @futuremrswood25: about fake layers of the cake. Having only 22 people will mean that you can really talk and have fun and jump in and out of that photobooth with all of the people you love. You’ll get some amazingly awesome photos of your favourite people.

Agree with the fake tier PPs suggested. As for the photobooth, you need to think about what kind of guests are coming and if tgey like that kind of thing.

Definitely ask your baker about the faux tier before you make any decisions counting on that option. I wanted to do it as well, and had 2 bakers tell me that it’s not cheaper because the labor for decorating is the same.

Okay, I feel better, thank you guys! And that is a great idea about the fake tiers, I hadn’t thought of that!

22 people? and a photobooth?
MUCH less of a line to get some aweseome photobooth shots, then!
Don’t worry – your wedding is going to rock!
