What size wedding do you prefer? Do you like the big blowouts or smaller and more intimate affairs?

    Intimate! I'd rather keep my money for other things than invite casual acquaintences, tonnes of friends of parents etc. to a huge wedding.

    Intimate. But it's not always the case when you have a big number or family and friends.

    Intimate for sure. Although many cathedrals (especially in Europe) appear grand, but they have such a cozy feel to them... But between backyard and ballroom, I'm definitely more low-key.

    Intimate. We had 75 guests, which may be slightly bigger than the typical intimate wedding, but we were able to talk to everyone a few times throughout the night so it felt small.

    Intimate although we do have a large family so could only cut the guest list back so much.

    Intimate. Why because Family & close friends are they to support you through your next Journey into your next Chapter of being One. It's the warmth of being in the same area with loved onesSmiley heart

    Intimate. We're having family and a handful of friends. Not about the show, its about starting our lives together and sharing it with the people we love.

    Intimate was perfect and great for small numbers. Nothing to crazy or overwhelming.

    Intimate for sure! We have a smaller venue which allows us to keep the guest list as low as we can!
