Weddings were a simpler affair about two decades back, now however in India people are spending an enormous amount of money on weddings!
The whole concept of weddings in India have usually been flamboyant and extravagant just like a wedding scene straight out of a Karan Johar or a Yash Chopra movie oozing grandeur and luxury. Gigantic halls with colourful drapery and stunning decor, well choreographed dance performances by family members, loud blaring music, the hustle bustle of the crowd, lavish cuisines, earth-shattering designer outfits and what not!
While you might be dreaming of such a larger than life wedding, spare a thought to the idea of intimate weddings as well.
An intimate wedding wouldn’t only make your wedding celebrations more enticing, it’ll also ensure that you’re surrounded by the people that mean the world to you!
Here are a few reasons why you should seriously consider having an intimate wedding!
1. It’s all about the money, honey!
Nowadays everyone is opting for smaller weddings in order to use that money for better purposes. Traditional big fat weddings are all about inviting hundreds of people, reserving top notch venues and hotel rooms to accommodate them and booking the best food caterer in town. How about securing that money for a better and a more beautiful life? You can use that money for a luxury exotic honeymoon or but jewellery or other valuable things.
2. A little bit of a personal touch
Close knit wedding wedding affairs have that personal touch where you can spend some cosy unforgettable moments with your loved ones instead of attending to guests you hardly know, have rarely met or will probably never meet again! With a smaller guest list you only invite those you truly want to share your big day with so you get to spend more time with those who you truly cherish.
3. Customising all the way!
Customising a huge wedding can be very difficult and expensive! An intimate wedding is not only easy on your pocket but also easier to manage. So with a smaller gathering you can add personal touches to your wedding according to your style, from personalised handwritten “thank you” notes to engraving the wedding favours with your and your partners names, the possibilities are endless!
4. Splurge on better things
Don’t worry you can still get your Manish Malhotra bridal lehenga you’ve always dreamt of! Having a close- knit affair does not mean it’s suppose to be devoid of any luxury. Infact having a smaller guest list, you can opt for a more lavish venue and spend a bit more on the areas you really wanna splurge on. It could be the best food catering services in town, a fabulous venue or your favourite music artist/band!
5. It’s definitely less stressful
With a smaller gathering you’re obviously less worked up! You can relax and enjoy your wedding functions and have personal interactions with people who truly matter. A destination wedding is also an amazing option with your few close friends, they’re usually more laid back. So kickback and make the most of your big day!
Happy Planning! 🙂
