Congratulations! You’re engaged to your spouse and finally on your way to spending the rest of your days with the love of your life. Your first step in the wedding planning process should be to decide what kind of wedding you’d like to have, and while there’s no right or wrong way to celebrate your big day you might want to consider having a small and intimate wedding.
The wedding experts at Vatican Banquet Hall know that big weddings have been the norm for years, but bucking the trend can actually provide a great experience. Don’t believe us? Well, our team’s running through some of the reasons you should have a small and intimate wedding.

1. Small Weddings Mean Small Budgets
Wedding budgets balloon as your guest list grows, and one of the easiest ways to save money is to have a small wedding. Remember, most weddings are budgeted by cost-per-guest, and a small wedding will ensure you get the most out of your budget without overspending. If cost is your top concern, you should definitely consider having a small, intimate wedding.
2. Hold Your Wedding Wherever You Want
Massive weddings can have trouble finding a proper venue for both the ceremony and reception. But when you have an intimate wedding, you’ll be able to book almost any venue of your choice.
With fewer guests, you have more flexibility when it comes to your choice of venue. You can host your reception at a restaurant, banquet hall, or anywhere else, because you won’t have to worry about shoving a ton of people into one location.
3. More Time To Interact With Your Guests
Big weddings are a lot of fun, but when you’re the guest of honor they can be pretty exhausting. You’ll be expected to make the rounds and chat with all your wedding guests, and when there are tons of guests you can easily get overwhelmed.
Thankfully, an intimate wedding will provide ample time for you to have genuine interactions with your guests. You won’t have to just pass by everyone and say your hellos, you’ll actually be able to have a conversation with each guest at your wedding, making more memories along the way.

4. Make The Wedding Planning Process Easy
When you have a big wedding, it’s difficult to find wedding vendors that can meet your needs. Catering services can be overwhelmed by your guest list and reception venues can’t fit all your guests, putting you in a bind as your big day inches closer. But planning a small, intimate wedding can be pretty easy.
While planning a small wedding, you won’t be barraged by so many special requests from guests or compromises you’ll have to make with vendors. You’ll be able to get exactly what you want for a price that won’t bust your budget.
5. Intimate Memories For You & Your Spouse
Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, encapsulating the love of you and your spouse for one incredible day. If you want to make the most of those memories, you’ll have an intimate wedding reception. A small, intimate wedding will provide a calm atmosphere for your celebration, providing ample time to engage with all your friends, family, and loved ones in attendance.
