There’s an increase in expensive weddings in recent years, which is partly due to social media. Social media is a great place to get wedding inspiration, but it can also put a lot of pressure on couples looking to tie the knot. Couples want to not only impress their guests, but also everyone that will be looking at their wedding posts on Instagram and Facebook.
While big weddings can be really fun and exciting, couples should do it for the right reasons and try not cave to social pressures. Small weddings are just as special and you don’t have to break the bank to have a wonderful and romantic wedding day.
When you’re deciding on the type of wedding you want to have, take your own personal preferences and budget into account. Don’t think of what your guests, friends, or family have done in the past or how they expect your wedding to look. Bigger is not always better when it comes to wedding planning so don’t get too caught up in social media and how you want your wedding to look from the outside.
Ask yourself these few questions and you’ll have a better idea of what to do. How much money can you comfortably put aside to spend on your wedding? Do you and your partner enjoy the spotlight? Is there anything you’d rather save the money for? If social media didn’t exist would you feel as pressured? When you picture the perfect wedding, who is there and how does it look?
Big or small, it doesn’t matter. Once you’re marrying the right person your wedding will be super special and a day you’ll treasure forever. If you can feel yourself getting too caught up with other peoples expectations take a breather and remember the real reason you’re getting married. It will all come together in the end so try and enjoy the ride.
