When you tell people you’re having a small wedding, a hushed tone falls over the room as if you just shared gossip or broke bad news. Everybody around you is secretly wondering whether or not they’ll be invited. Some friends are thinking, “Her fiancé must be forcing her to have a small wedding—she wants a big one! I know it!” Other friends are thinking, “If they were really excited about spending their lives together, they’d vow to do it in front of a big crowd. They’d just want to.” People will always talk and judge. You can’t do anything about that. You just need to face the task at hand: pulling off a small wedding without destroying relationships. Becausea small wedding comes with drama—possibly more than a big wedding does. Here is the unexpected drama that comes with a small wedding.

People want plus ones

Let’s be honest: weddings are more fun with a plus one especially when you only know a handful of people who will be there. So your guests will be upset when they learn they don’t get plus ones. Only married couples and couples in which you feel close to both individuals get to bring a date. Everybody else will just have to come stag and be ready to make friends.
