Small Intimate Weddings Abroad

Choosing to have a wedding abroad is simple if you know for sure that you'd like to have a small, intimate wedding, as it's a really easy way to cut the guest list and ensure you have the size of wedding you'd like.

Marrying abroad is also a lovely way to celebrate twice, as you can have a small wedding abroad and then have a big party at home when you get back. This means you can have exactly the type of wedding you're dreaming of, but also include more of your family and friends in your celebration.

One tip - if you are planning a small wedding abroad then it's important to find a wedding planner or venue which welcomes small weddings. Some wedding professionals focus mainly on large ceremonies, or a venue may offer exclusive use for a large wedding. If this isn't what you're looking for then take your time deciding on the person who is going to help you marry.

However, also remember that some planners and venues will be happy to arrange a smaller wedding off season, so if you're not set on marrying in the height of summer you're more likely to find a planner who has availablity for a smaller wedding.

Questions to ask before booking your small wedding

  • Do you have a minimum fee or minimum size of wedding?
  • Is there a set menu choice for the reception or can we choose a la carte?
  • (To a planner) Do you have intimate venues for a ceremony available?

Many couples who already have children choose to have a small wedding, and it's a great way to involve the children in the ceremony, perhaps with the kids walking Mum down the aisle, being a ring bearer, or holding Mum's bouquet. A smaller wedding is less intimidating for children especially if they're in an unfamiliar location. It also means that they feel fully included in this big day in their parents' (and their) lives.

Small weddings can also be much more fun than a large affair. Just'll have the chance to speak to all your guests properly and you don't have to spend a fortune on food and drink (the main cost for a wedding).

A small wedding doesn't have to be cheap, but, due to its size, it often does cost less than a more "traditional" wedding. Which means you have more money to spend on other things....such as a honeymoon or a house.....and with smaller weddings becoming more and more popular it's a great way to celebrate your union properly but without breaking the bank.
