@little_lamb:  hi! Congratulations on the wedding! I haven’t yet experienced what you’re about to but mine is very similar. We’ve found a beautiful winery close to home. We’re going all the way in our wedding finery, hair, makeup, professional photographer, the works. We will be witnessed by winery staff. Afterwards is a lakeside early evening meal with 7 adults and 3 kids – our immediate families. Oh and cake, can’t forget the cake 🙂 kind of eloping. Our accommodation is just down the road.

This is both our second marriage, after the stress and madness if our first times, this is going to be heaven compared!!

@little_lamb:  no wedding for me yet but I think what you described sounds absolutely lovely! It doesnt seem harsh at all and Im sure everyone will understand. It seems like a small intimate get away that will lead up to a perfect day. I have attended enough weddings to know that Bride is usually stressed out by all the extra people wanting her attention. You are still having a reception when you return and that will give you a chance to celebrate with everyone. Congrats to you and do not second guess your dream wedding to make others feel accomodated

What you’re planning sounds wonderful 🙂


We’re having a small ceremony with the 25-30 closest family members, friends, and family friends. All other friends, family, and family friends will be invited to the reception the next day.

@little_lamb:  This is excatly how my husband and I felt! We ended up having a very small wedding, 11 guests, and we took everyone to dinner at a nice resturant afterwards. It was amazing, and very low stress. We also had a big party at our house for everyone a few weeks later. I really wouldnt change a thing about our wedding. I say go for it, what you have planned sounds wonderful!

I had 11 people at my wedding and I wouldn’t have it any other way!  It was beautiful, memorable and stress-free.
