Big weddings will make a comeback as early as June 21st, with the UK on track to remove guest restriction. But with a fluctuating Covid-climate and emerging trends for smaller weddings, is a big wedding the best option? We talk to a 23-year-old recently married, ‘lockdown bride’ to find out more.
What were the pros of a small wedding?
I had a small wedding during the second wave of lockdown, and it was good and bad in its own way. I had always planned to have this huge wedding with all my relatives, but I wanted to make sure my relationship with my partner was made halal as quickly as possible.
The best thing about having a small wedding was it was super personalised. From the colour the guests wore down to the handmade desserts, we had a lot of fun, and it was easy to talk to my best friends and family on the day. I think we all tried not to cry throughout the day, which was really funny! Overall, everything was straightforward to plan, I got a lot of my friends involved, and they took over.
