Liz and Jon had 11 people at their wedding. Is this the new normal? – ABC Everyday

Liz Davidson has had the entirety of the pandemic to think about what makes a great wedding. Now, she has three words of advice: “keep it small”.

“I think the ideal number of guests is 30,” she says. “Just go with who you really want there at the end of the day.”

In 2019, Liz and her fiance Jon started planning to tie the knot in Fiji — surrounded by family and friends.

“It was all the aunties and all the uncles. We were making sure no one missed out,” she says. 

“And then COVID hit.”

In September this year, they were married in front of just 11 guests (in line with government restrictions) 45 minutes down the road on the central coast of New South Wales. Jon’s family watched via livestream in Queensland. They had their first dance in the hotel room, alone, at the end of the night.

“It was an emotional day,” Liz says. And though it was “a little bit heartbreaking” to not have Jon’s family present, she has no regrets about pushing ahead.

“It was really intimate,” she says. 

“[At a small wedding] you get more time to talk to everyone and be with your partner. You have time to eat!
