3 Benefits of a Small Wedding, Berkeley, California

From napkin colors to seating arrangements, there are so many important details to organize for a wedding. But if you plan an intimate celebration at a small wedding venue, you can eliminate stress from your special day and even save on costs. Here are a few compelling reasons to host a small wedding.

Why You Should Have a Small Wedding

1. Reduced Planning Stress

For a small wedding, you’ll have fewer invitations to send and RSVPs to track, giving you an accurate headcount sooner, which is critical information when booking a venue or caterer. In the final weeks of planning, tasks like seating charts and wedding favors won’t take as long with fewer guests to accommodate.

2. Customization

When you only need a few favors and even fewer centerpieces, you can make them extra personal—like handwriting each guest’s place card or thank you card to include in their favor. Your guests will then have a keepsake from a memorable night. 

3. More Time With Guests

Traditionally, the happy couple visits each table and greets every guest. While it’s special to see friends and family—some of whom might have traveled far—your time with everyone is limited. At a small wedding, you can spend more time creating memories with each guest. Fewer guests also makes it easier to get everyone in the pictures, so no one feels left out.
