I need help. I am very close with my family and there are 6 siblings plus each of their partners, but my partner isn't as close with his.
He is also not a big people person and would love an intimate wedding. So i have an issue deciding if i want the intimate one (which id love to do) or the one with my my family. I am worried id regret not having them there but i also know ill feel most comfortable with the selected 6.
He is willing to go big for me, but i also do want to take his feelings and wants into consideration. We would save a lot of money too…How do i decide?

    I do like that idea. I had thought about doing it that way a while ago. I guess hearing it from others really helps to make me feel like its the choice we should make. Thank you!

    I think Kelsey makes a great point, intimate is really relative to the couple. Even with your max 30 numbers I feel that is still pretty intimate.

    Her suggestion of a smaller ceremony, and then inviting the rest for reception is a great idea. It allows those that are closest to you to be there for the sentimental part, and then you can have a party with everyone else.

    That is the same issue we had; my FH doesn't have a lot of family and I do. We agreed on the # of guests and we now joke about it being a family reunion on my side and a high school reunion on his ...

    Our definition of intimate is our closest friends of 6 people. And full guest count goes up to 30 only.

    I do like that idea, thank you.

    What is your definition of intimate? Is there a way you can have a small 30 person or so wedding and have that intimate? Or is the choice just between having 10 or having 100?


    Maybe there is a way to have the family you want without having the large number.
    Or, could you have an intimate ceremony with 10 guests and then have a reception after with a larger number? Intimate moment for your vows and the emotional stuff and then time to celebrate with everyone?
    Just some ideas 😊 happy planning!
