Small weddings can be ideal because they’re less costly and easier to navigate. However, if you have a large family and a lot of friends, having a small wedding isn’t always possible. Planning a large wedding or any event doesn’t have to be overwhelming. As long as you are decisive and realistic about what you want and plan ahead of time, then coordinating a large wedding shouldn’t be problematic. The number of guests attending your wedding matters. Why? Because you have to think about the venue, catering menu, and if it’s necessary to provide transportation for your wedding, especially when it comes to those who are elderly, disabled, or have no access to a vehicle. Keep reading below on how to plan a wedding when you have a large party.
1) Make Sure The Venue Can Accommodate For All Of Your Guests
This tip may seem obvious, but it still needs discussion. It is super beneficial to visit your wedding venue and walk through it to not only see if you can imagine yourself walking down the aisle, but make sure that all of your guests can comfortably move around without feeling constrained. It’s better to find out right away that all of your guests won’t be able to fit so that you can make adjustments.
2)Narrow Down Your Guest List
If you haven’t spoken to a person since elementary school, then they shouldn’t attend your wedding. Also, if a person’s presence genuinely makes you uneasy, then it goes without saying that they should also not come. During your dream wedding, you want to make sure that you are in the best of spirits and feel fantastic on your big day.
3) Buffets For Large Party Can Be Problematic
When it comes to catering for your large wedding, a bar where people make their food can become messy. An “all-you-can-eat” styled catering option can also become crowded, especially if you have over 50 guests. Guests may end up spending more time trying t get their food than enjoying your wedding reception. Invest in a catering company that will serve your guests to make things smoother and fluid.
