So you want a simple wedding...

I have to admit. I wanted a giant wedding. I sort of had a giant wedding, so the ladies who tell me they want small weddings or no wedding at all, completely baffle me. I know it’s possible to have a small soiree that can be elegant, chic, and simple. Here are a few rules for the bride that thinks she doesn’t want a big wedding or, gasp, a wedding at all. 

  1. Hire a Planner - The best advice I can give for a bride who doesn’t want a complicated or “big” wedding is to hire a wedding planner. I swear I’m not just saying that!! Having nothing to worry about on your big day makes it really easy to relax and enjoy the party. I seriously didn’t have to worry about anything ever... and that is most important thing, to enjoy spending your day with friends and family and new husband!!
  2. Keep it Simple - Just because you hire a planner doesn’t mean that you have to go overboard, but it does mean that you will have someone to help make the process that much easier.
  3. Keep it Small - Keep the guest list small. The easy way to keep things easy is to keep your wedding a small, intimate affair. A “small” wedding means different things to everyone, but I’d say anywhere from 50-100 people. 
  4. Take your time - I feel like the people that say they don’t want weddings all tried to plan a wedding within a matter of months, almost like they just wanted to get it over with!! Take your time planning, just because you want a simple, small wedding doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t give your self proper time to plan. The more time you have, the less likely you are to feel the crazy pressure of the wedding. Trust me on this. 
  5. Don’t Stress - If you want your wedding to go smoothly and without a hitch, the key is to not be a perfectionist. Let other people help you and be okay with things not going exactly as planned... this is another time the wedding planner will be a plus, you probably won’t ever know if something goes wrong... Yes, they are that good!
