Congratulations to the happy couple! According to, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, longtime couple and parents to daughter Lincoln, were finally wed this past Thursday, October 16. The two decided to have a quiet ceremony by getting married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office.

How do you keep your wedding small and intimate without offending people? 

Cupid’s Advice:

Some people prefer a small, quiet setting, which is perfectly fine! But others might expect you to do the opposite. Thinking of having an intimate wedding but don’t want to offend anyone who isn’t invited? Cupid has some suggestions:

1. Don’t be bullied into inviting unwanted guests: Put your foot down. Remember that this is what you want, and explain to them why it’s important for you to do it this way. People might wonder why you’re choosing an intimate wedding over a big one, but they aren’t the ones getting married, you and your boo are!

2. Make the guestlist: A big wedding might not be your ideal dream, and having a small wedding isn’t a crime. Choose who you want to attend, remember why you want them there, and invite them.

3. Be ready to hear it from people: If people confront you with upset and tell you that they’re offended that they weren’t invited, you have to explain to them why they weren’t. All you need to do is be honest with them — clarify your reasoning for a small wedding, and do it nicely… you don’t want them to feel even more left out of your life!
