The concept of Micro-Weddings (it’s like the fun-sized mini versions of my favorite candy bars!) is nothing new. But, in the aftermath of Covid-19, it may just be the newest trend in nuptials.
Over the past decade Micro-Weddings have been steadily growing in popularity. Couples cite many reasons for choosing a smaller celebration – from economics to just wanting a more intimate experience. Now you can add government restrictions on gathering and traveling as reasons to consider this option.
What is a Micro-Wedding?
A Micro-Wedding is loosely defined as any wedding with 50 or fewer guests. That’s it! The rest is left for the creative bride and groom to define for themselves. And, with a smaller guest list the options for creating a celebration that reflects your personal styles are practically limitless.
Spaces once considered too small for larger weddings could be just perfect for your micro-wedding. Do you want to get married in a garden? How about an art gallery or a yoga studio? Under a tent in your own backyard or on a nearby farm? Your favorite brewery, a public park, a boat or an urban rooftop? Your venue choices can be boundless.
Your ceremony can be as traditional or non-traditional as you want! Imagine a ceremony where all of your guests have a front row seat as you exchange your vows, or, giving your guests a reading to recite. Smaller weddings give you the opportunity to really connect with each and every person in the room. With fewer than 50 guests in attendance you’ll really be able to let each and every one of them know how very special they are.
Sometimes, the budget is the driver of how large or small your wedding will be. Fewer guests can add up to a lot of savings. But, more often, brides and grooms are choosing to go all out for their micro-weddings while still saving money when compared to a much larger wedding. Fewer guests give you more spending power to go BIG on style, whether it’s a designer wedding gown, top-rated entertainment, a 6-course plated dinner, over-the-top florals, top-shelf liquor and more.
