This is why we would like to invite you to consider some advice about why it’s a great idea to choose a small wedding venue. We hope you’ll enjoy it. 

Why should you choose a small wedding venue?

Small wedding venues offer a lot of perks. They're often more affordable than larger facilities, and they can give you the chance to have a more intimate celebration with your closest friends and family. Here are some other benefits of small wedding venues:

-A smaller guest list will make your wallet happy. If a wedding on a budget is what you’re after, then small wedding venues are a definite plus. You’ll have the comfort of knowing that no one will be upset with you if you didn’t invite them, because you can always fall back on the argument of having a small wedding. You’ll be totally in control of your guest list, and it will be way easier to keep up with who is attending, who is not, and who is bringing a plus one. With up to 50 people, you’re sure to keep everything organized. 

-It will be easier to organize on your own. The smaller the wedding, the smaller the chaos. If you rent the venue early enough, you’ll be able to organize a lot on your own, or with the help of a close friend or family member. Although wedding planners are amazing helpers (and if you feel you need one, by all means get one), you do not need to feel pressured to work with one if your wedding is on a smaller scale. And that also means - better budgeting options. On that note, you can also check out affordable wedding venues in Boston if that’s something you’re after. 

-You can have an entirely customized experience. Smaller spaces mean you can get creative with how you decorate, which means decorating it in a way that fits your vision for your wedding day down to the smallest detail. You can choose between an indoor and outdoor space depending on the weather, and how much you want to spend on decorations. In general, there’s a lot more you can get away with, especially since it’s most likely that you’ll have the entire locale to yourself. When it comes to bigger locations, sometimes venues offer spaces enough for 2 or even 3 weddings to happen on the same day. And unfortunately that can lead to trouble with everything being on time. Here, the risk is far lesser. 

-You can have more time for your ceremony, which will mean no rushing. The locale’s hosts are usually more flexible when it comes to scheduling, so if you have a specific time frame in mind, you should be able to work with them (rather than sticking to an exact hour on the dot). They’ll be waiting for you, and they will want your Big Day to be as perfect as it can get. So if you happen to arrive a little later than expected - it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Their attention will be focused entirely on you anyway.

-Small venues are great because they offer an intimate atmosphere and make it easier for guests to mingle and get to know each other. It’s less crowded, less intimidating, and people tend to walk around and approach each other a little more. Do you feel better when a party is less crowded? In that case, a small wedding would be the perfect option for you!

-If you’re lucky, you might also be able to customize the food and beverage options to your liking. The chefs, managers and anyone else who’ll be running the venue during your wedding is going to be far more agreeable to customization, when all they have is you to keep in mind. A BYOB option, a personalized dinner, custom drinks? Why not have it all!

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why having a small wedding is a great idea. So if you've been thinking about it, do what your heart tells you to do and go for it! We guarantee that you'll be happy about such a decision and you'll have a wonderful celebration with the people you cherish the most.
