Should You Have a Big or Small Wedding?
by: Fernando Bellingham

Once you have decided to get married, you will have a lot of decisions to make about the wedding ceremony. The first is whether it should be big or small.

Should You Have a Big or Small Wedding?

A wedding ceremony is one of those events that have always been steeped in tradition. In the classic version, all the people that are important are invited. On top of that, all the people in your extended family are also invited. This includes all such people for both the groom and the bride. Once you put it all together, you can be looking at a wedding with 200 people or more. This can result in a wonderful celebration of your bond, but it has some downsides.

A wedding with over 200 people is going to be expensive. If you doubt this, take a moment to consider the simple cost of feeding 200 people at the reception. Now also take into account the size and cost of the location for the ceremony. How about the reception? Simply put, it can quickly add up. The total cost of a wedding of this size can easily come in at $50,000 or more. Obviously, you can trim here and there when planning it, but you should still expect a significant expense.

One step more and more couples are taking is to forgo the traditional wedding. The thought of spending so much money on a one day event is simply too much. Instead, the couples usually look to more practical uses for the money in their new life together. The primary practicality is using the money for a down payment on a new home where they can live and start accumulating wealth as the home grows in value.

So, what is the correct choice? Well, it depends on your personal taste. For some couples, the wedding represents the most glorious day of their lives and they want the celebration to be the ultimate representation of their commitment to each other. For others, a more subtle celebration is enough with the purchase of a home being a better way to get their life together off on the right foot.

At the end of the day, the decision is really yours to make. If you want a big wedding, then do it. If you prefer to use the money in other ways, go ahead. As long as you both are happy with your decision, it is the right answer.
