Sometimes less truly is more for you and your fiancé! Whether it’s due to the recent pandemic, the resulting government restrictions, or your dream venue, a micro wedding might be for you.
Micro weddings maintain all the magic of your special day, just with a smaller guest list (usually no more than 30). These are fully planned and carefully curated events, so you can still have all the wedding bells and whistles like a beautiful venue, photographer, and cake. If you’re looking at other options due to the uncertainty of planning during a pandemic, micro weddings are a great alternative and can even be followed by a larger celebration when circumstances settle.
Do we have you hooked yet? Keep reading for our top 5 perks of choosing a micro wedding:
Your wedding is only a few hours, but the planning process can take months or even years. Micro weddings give you less details to plan and keep up with, allowing you to enjoy your time being engaged. You can focus less on the RSVP’s and more on family and friends. Micro weddings allow you to truly focus on what’s close to your heart, like yummy food, a romantic ceremony, or a memorable honeymoon (or maybe all 3!)
Sometimes weddings are overwhelming, and the couple walks around dazed from all the festivities! With a micro wedding, you get to enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere (similar to an elopement or quick trip to the courthouse), but with your nearest and dearest by your side. You’ll be able to relish every moment with your loved ones and keep all of the memory-making essentials: the photographer, the fiancé, and the cake to name a few!
The size of your wedding is no indicator of how over-the-top you can go. By dropping your guest count, you free up funds to splurge on, well, whatever YOU want. Are you a true foodie? Enjoy a five-course wedding dinner. Does your fiancé love craft cocktails? Have The Grand Bevy create a custom drink for your reception. Thinking of your dream dress? Go for it! Let’s upgrade the champagne toast to your fave while we’re at it. With a micro wedding, you have more freedom to prioritize where you want your money to go. Splurge on what feels right for your big day and give everyone an experience that they’ll be remembering for years.!
You don’t want to be the couple that didn’t have time to eat or greet all of your guests. With a micro wedding, you can spend more quality time with each of your guests. Imagine being able to cut the cake or share a toast while looking out at every single person there. Truly a memory you’ll never forget!
It’s time to get creative! Many unique spaces are inaccessible to larger weddings because of space constraints, but with a micro wedding you can consider a variety of spaces. Host your reception at a family home, museum, famous restaurant, or even a gazebo in the middle of a lake. With micro weddings, the usual rules don’t have to apply!
No matter what you choose, make sure it’s memorable for you and your guests! Have you hosted or attended a wedding with a small guest list? Let us know what your favorite part was below!
