Big Wedding vs. Small Wedding? The pros and cons.

Weddings are a special day for not only the newly-weds but for their families as well.

So the question is, what is the choice of your wedding ceremony? You want it big and bold or small and simple?  After some surveys from our experienced brides… here are some observations:-

  • The cost will inevitably rise the more people you invite
  • There’s much more work involved



  • You get to spend more time with close friends and sit back and enjoy your moment than making your way round the guests
  • You can feel more relaxed on your wedding day
  • You can save money
  • You can splurge and you have more choices in terms of venue since you do not need large space to accommodate your guest
  • Incredibly easy to organise
  • Have less things to worry about when preparing
  • Super intimate.


  • You have to be selective with your guest list
  • Could disappoint some family and friends who didn’t get invites

True Story:

Since we are talking about the appropriate size for a wedding, recently in the news, a Sri Lankan couple, Nisansala and Nalin had broken the record for the world’s biggest wedding with 126 bridesmaids, 25 best men, 20 page boys and 23 flowers girls - beating the previous record of 96 held by a Thai couple.

To plan a wedding is no easy deal, but a wedding of this size? Challenging!   The bride’s sister, Champi happens to be one of the Sri Lanka’s leading wedding planner and dress designer who dressed all the bridesmaid as well.

This massive wedding was held at the Avendra Gardens in Negombo, about 30 kilometers from Colonbo. The wedding party – bride, groom, 126 bridesmaids, 25 best men, 20 page boys and 23 flower girls – were dressed in richly embroidered traditional costumes in purple and gold.

Malaysian out there, challenge accepted? :)
