I’m in the midst of planning my wedding to an amazing person! I’m very excited and can’t wait to be his wife. My fiancé always wanted to have a super small wedding at most 10 people, just our immediate family. I wanted something a little bigger approximately 50 people, still quite small for a wedding. But recently I have been leaning more towards a super small wedding with our immidiate family. The reasons are because we do want to save money and also because it fits who we are perfectly. Now the problem is I’m afraid that I will regret this decision my fiancé believes that just been us would be enough for him and would be super special. I’m debating whether I should or shouldn’t. We would love to save money for our honeymoon…I have a distinct feeling that it would be so romantic to do it just us just because we are not big oN parties. I honestly don’t know what to Do!!! My mom of course is not so happy about and I’m just confus…any advice…any ladies out there that had a super small wedding? how did it go? And why made you choose to do a small wedding?
thank you so much…

I’m not having a super small wedding but I see no reason you can’t.
Just the two of you IMO is not something you should do, in the very least your parents should be there.
Be honest with your mother and say “I only want to spend ‘X’ on the wedding” if cost is the reason you’re now looking to something very small.
A wedding is a party but it can be made to suit your personalities much easier than just chopping down the list. Why not have a cocktail reception after the party? You can keep the cost low and have some people there to give you their congrats and best wishes, which is really what it should be about.
Go with small if that’s what you two want, keep it intimate but don’t just elope if you always wanted some family and friends there. I think doing a cocktail reception would help you the most, bring that to your fiance and see if he likes that idea and then perhaps the guest numbers will be more relaxed/workable 🙂

There is no right answer for this. Each couple is different. But I think that whatever you go with, at the end of the day you’ll be married to a great guy so you won’t have any regrets!
