5 Wedding Ideas That Will Absolutely Appeal To Introverts

5 Wedding Ideas That Will Absolutely Appeal To Introverts



There’s no way around it: your wedding day is going to be at least a little stressful. But for introverts, the big day can be especially overwhelming, as it combines some of their least favorite things: being the center of attention and engaging in lots of small talk without much ― if any ― alone time. 
Eloping is always an option, of course, but for introverts who choose to have a wedding, how can they minimize the stress and maximize the fun?
“Be sure you are planning the wedding that suits you rather than succumbing to other people’s ideas of what a wedding should be,” Sophia Dembling, author of Introverts in Love: The Quiet Way to Happily Ever After, told HuffPost. “This is good, all-purpose advice, of course, but introverts in are often shamed for low-key preferences. Don’t let others decide for you.”
Large social gatherings can be challenging for introverted wedding guests, too. So when planning your celebration, just remember that not everyone you invite is going to be into dancing, playing party games and giving toasts. 
“Some people love that kind of thing, some don’t,” Dembling said. “Let your guests enjoy the party however they feel most comfortable.”
Below, we’ve compiled 15 wedding ideas that will make the big day more manageable for introverted brides, grooms and guests alike,

1. Consider a more casual celebration, like a brunch wedding.


A traditional seated dinner can feel a bit formal or stuffy for some. A daytime brunch wedding or a backyard fete, on the other hand, can add a low-key feel to the day that will put you and your guests at ease.

2. Keep the bridal party small


“Big bridal parties often lead to bigger problems,” wedding planner Tracie Domino of Tracie Domino Events told HuffPost. “From trying to find a dress that will fit everyone to one of your girls complaining that her hair appointment is too early, the less opinions the introverted bride has to deal with, the better.”
Plus, having too many people around you while you’re getting ready the morning of the wedding can mess with your zen and add unnecessary chaos.

3. Create a “call anyone but the bride” phone list.


Create a phone list with all of the important numbers for your guests and vendors. That way, people know who to call for what and won’t need to bother you with pesky last-minute questions. Oh, and because introverts really don’t like talking on the phone

4. Do a first look before the ceremony.


Waiting until you walk down the aisle to see your bride or groom may seem romantic, but for introverts, it’s a whole lot of pressure. Plan to do a private first look before the ceremony, just the two of you, to relieve some of those wedding day jitters

5. Try sitting during the ceremony.


  We said it before and we’ll say it again: Introverts do not relish being the center of attention. Consider sitting ― not standing ― during your wedding ceremony. If your knees get wobbly and your palms get sweaty just thinking about all of your guests staring at you so intently, sitting down may help you feel more grounded and allow you to really soak in the moment.
