2020 Wedding Trend: Intimate Weddings

The Benefits of Having an Intimate Wedding

As we approach the beginning of a new year, it is time to look into upcoming wedding trends, and 2020 is the year for intimate weddings! An intimate wedding is smaller in size, typically including under 50 guests. Many people who choose to have an intimate wedding prefer quality over quantity. Learn about the benefits of an intimate wedding with Dream Beach.


Weddings can be very expensive! You’re throwing a celebration that you and your close family and friends will remember for a long time. Funds are often allocated toward the wedding venue, attire, ceremony decor, flowers, photography, the reception, food, and more. The number of guests affects all of the aspects of a wedding. With an intimate wedding, the couple can spend less money on a venue and more on other vendors. Or they can book the venue of their dreams! There are many opportunities in terms of spending when choosing to have an intimate wedding.

Quality Time

An intimate wedding allows the couple to spend more quality time with their guests. It is difficult to engage in meaningful conversations and truly enjoy yourself if you are trying to communicate with a large number of people. This type of ceremony will give you the opportunity to connect with your guests on a deeper level, while celebrating a momentous occasion. You can even invite them to be part of more festivities, including the rehearsal dinner.

More Personalized

Personalization can go a long way with an intimate wedding. You can focus more on the details of the day and create a beautiful experience for you and your guests. Some of these details could include personalized invitations, creating welcome bags, utilizing a theme, and having decor that is reflective of you and your partner.

Less Stress

Fewer guests could very well mean less stress! And with a wedding planner, you can plan a stress-free intimate wedding. It may be easier to find the perfect venue with a smaller guest list. Your wedding could be more budget-friendly, allowing you to spend money on other things like your honeymoon or future expenses.
