One gent who recently came to this realisation was online user @AviweN__ who posted a photo of an intimate matrimonial ceremony.

Moreover, according to Bellevue Café, smaller weddings make guests feel special and included. A smaller guest list means you'll remember each and every guest who was there on your special day, and that you'll have enough time to get around to chatting to all of them and thanking them personally for attending.

Although there were a few haters here and there, many South African online users appeared to be fans of this modern-style ceremony and agreed that it would save many newlyweds from getting into debt before even tying the knot.

Couple’s intimate wedding gains Mzansi’s approval

In a similar story, Briefly News previously reported that a beautiful couple clad in blue shared a romantic and intimate wedding with their closest loved ones. Twitter user @thuso_thelejane shared that the newlyweds were not forced into debt as they commemorated their special day in a more low-key manner.

The only extravagant thing about their special day was their undying love for each other which did not require a grand gesture. Some peeps seemed to have enjoyed the humble event while others defended heavy spenders - stating that weddings are an important celebration.

Their elegant vow exchange gained heaps of comments from locals who could not wait to share their opinions. Regardless of what anyone says, the couple looked happier than ever in their pics and that's really all that matters.
