Due to the current situation, the wedding industry has been massively effected. See my blog on it here. The rules are ever changing.. the current guidelines say 30 in a ceremony and 30 for a sit down meal afterwards (from August 1st). You can read the full rules here.
I have had a lot of people move their wedding dates. Due to being in lockdown or just not having the wedding they dreamed of. I am also getting a few people requiring wedding photography for their ceremony only as they just want to get married and have a smaller wedding with their nearest and dearest.
I have been to weddings with 10 and I have been to weddings with over 150. They’re both equally lovely in their own way, but today we’re concentrating on those smaller ones. I actually really love a small wedding and should I get married, that’s what I’d have.
There are a lot of reasons I like a smaller weddings.
Destination weddings – it’s no secret I love a wedding abroad. They tend to have less people due to travelling to the destination. I have always liked that about weddings in other countries, so why can’t we do this theme here? Having the most important people to you there.
I also love smaller weddings as I feel people have more opportunity to chat to all of their guests. They can spend more time with their family and friends without rushing about trying to spend time with a massive guest list. They feel more intimate, everyone gets to chat and they definitely have a laid back feel.
I still think you can have a beautiful wedding with a smaller guest list. You can still have a pretty table with gorgeous flowers and you can still have a cake. There’s still so much opportunity to have a stunning day.
I know a lot of things have changed and there’s a big different between smaller weddings before Covid-19 and weddings now (for the time being). I totally understand why people don’t want to get married under the current regulations, but I also understand why people do.
