Here’s why smaller weddings can be better…

In a wedding setting, for instance, two families have the opportunity to truly get to know each other and form a lasting bond. When guest lists top 300, the bride and groom do not have as much time to spend talking to each of their guests. And, often, unwanted family members appear when guest lists get too big.
