    We only had 7 guests at our wedding (although we invited about 160). We knew that we would have only 10 or less, but we were completely happy with it. It allowed everyone to just hang out together for the few days before and after and it was such a small, intimate group that it really ended up being great because we really got to spend quality time with our guests. I wouldn't change it at all!

      We only had 14 guests, and we found it to be a really nice number. As for costs, we took everyone off resort for dinner. We couldn't have done that with a huge group, nor could we have given all the favours and post-wedding thank you packages if we'd had a large group. We only had 1 person stand up for us on each side. Money savings aside, we really enjoyed a smaller number. We had more time to actually spend with everyone.

          I think a small wedding would be great! You wouldn't need to divide your time amoungst people and you could still qualify for a group rate if you wanted (10 is the group rate min).

            So far there are only 6 people going including the 2 of us. I don't mind that it will be small..works for me

              I was worried we only have 17 booked right now but I’m starting to think smaller might be nicer.

                Our dinner was at 7:30, and we had our own private area, so we had a steel drum band, and danced a little. I think we left around 10:15 or so. Lots of resorts have a night club, but ours was closed that night. But they had a bonfire on the beach, so we grabbed a drink and snuggled into some lounger chairs by the fire and listened to the guitarist. It was nice :)

                  We hired a reggae band and danced the night away on the beach! We were worried that the band might be over-the-top for a group of our size, but honestly, it was fantastic! We had a blast!

                    We watched the entertainment they had that night and drank our yummy cocktails! It was very relaxing after months of stress!

                      I'm glad to see that other couples are having small weddings too. We originally thought we would have around 30 people, now it looks like about
                      15 (and that might even be over-estimating). All of our friends are in too much debt! I do like the idea of having a more intimate ceremony though. Then we can add a few fun excursions to do as a group!
