Cupid’s Advice:

No matter if your wedding is big or small, it will probably be one of the best days of your life.  Choose the size that is best for you and where you are in your life.  Here are some tips:

1. Budgets: Don’t start out your marriage in debt.  If you can’t afford a big wedding, have a small one.

2. Intimacy: If you want a more intimate experience with those you are closest to, then go for a less massive wedding.

3. Location: If your plan is to get married on a beach far away, a small ceremony is to be expected.  Most of your guests will most likely not have the time or money to pick up and go to your destination wedding.  Plan a party when you get home instead.
