There are many reasons for having a small wedding ranging from cost to reduced stressed to an increased feeling of intimacy and meaning from keeping things small.
But, here's a new one: Having a small wedding let's you take advantage of this fabulous idea: An illustrated seating chart.
Artist Katie Fischer Cohen creeates these charts that do double duty, serving as a way for your guests to find their table, and later as a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork for your home.
Why are these best for a small wedding? Well, for one thing, it wouldn't be practical for 200 people to stand around one piece of art looking for their seat. For the other, as you might imagine, hand drawing pictures of your guests, or creating a hand-designed poster costs a little bit of money.
What do you think? Would you love to have one of these beautiful charts as a wedding memory?
