Finally, the bigger the wedding, the larger the pile of gifts! This may be a rather shallow reason for having a large wedding, and they won’t be surprise gifts if you have a present list … oh, and you’ll probably spend more on inviting people that you’ll receive in gifts. Still, it’s one advantage of having a big wedding!
Everyone differs on their view of an ideal wedding. Some prefer a more intimate day, and others would prefer to just elope and avoid the stress of planning a wedding. Then there are those who want the traditional big wedding. Do whatever is right for you, and if you want and can afford a big day, then that’s your right. Are you married or planning a wedding – were you pushed into having a big day, or did you love sharing your day with lots of guests?
