You will feel more relaxed. Being surrounded by friends and family instead of a bunch of acquaintances will make you feel more more at home with your guests. Your wedding will feel more like a celebration with close-knit friends and family, than a production.

You will save money. You can save thousands of bucks by having an intimate wedding, which means you don’t have to go over budget. For many couples, this is the primary reason for scaling back the guest list.

 You can splurge. Some couples choose a small guest list so they can pull out all the stops and have a truly lavish wedding. When you’ve got fewer guests, you can splurge on the things that really matter to you. For some that might be a five course gourmet meal with late night food trucks, for others it might be a swanky jazz band or a designer wedding gown.

 You can get creative with your venue options. A smaller guest list means more creative venue options like bed and breakfasts, museums, art galleries and restaurants.

Your wedding will leave an impression. Because your wedding won’t be typical – the kind your guests have been to over and over again – your wedding is more likely to be remembered.

You can work with a shorter time-line. With fewer people and details to fulfill, you’ll have the option to cut down your time-line. Want to be married by this time three months from now? A small guest list makes this possible.

You will spare feelings. With a small wedding, you have an easy out to tell people who aren’t invited. If you’re having a large gathering, it gets a little harder to tell them why they didn’t make the cut.
