A friend recently asked me how in the world I’ve managed to keep our guest list so small. And while I can’t say that our invite list hasn’t grown from what we originally imagined, I am proud of the fact that I’ve been able to keep our intimate wedding from spiraling out of control. Not that I’m saying our wedding is somehow this incredible event with folks clamoring to come—I’m just sending our invites out in the next few weeks so now’s probably a great time to explain how we managed to “keep it tight” as my friends would say.

There are a million and one good reasons to have a small wedding if you want one. Having a wedding at all and not some crazy elopement overseas was a compromise for us to begin with—so there was no sense in losing all touch with our desires by allowing ourselves to feel forced to throw a giant wedding. As a couple of introverts with few but very personally meaningful social connections, a small wedding just made sense.
