It’s an exciting time in your life when you are planning a wedding. You have so many options available to you that it can be difficult to decide on the right one. If you plan on having a smaller wedding but don’t really want to elope or plan a destination wedding, then a micro wedding might be the perfect choice for you. They are on the smaller side, typically between 20-30 guests.
Micro weddings tend to be the right choice for those who don’t wish to have all the trappings of a traditional ceremony as well. While you can still have the romantic vow exchange, you can cut out any other item you like for a shorter ceremony. You may not be the type that is into more formal settings, and this is where a micro wedding will fit you well. Your reception will be more relaxed and you are better able to mingle and enjoy your guests since you won’t have hundreds in attendance.
For those who worry about their budget, a micro wedding tends to be more affordable than a large wedding, plus they are environmentally friendly as well.
Planning A Micro Wedding Isn’t As Stressful
Planning a large-scale wedding often leads to stress and it makes it very hard to just enjoy the time leading up to the big day. If you aren’t planning on having many guests anyway, a micro wedding means less stress in planning and organizing everything.
For example, you have more choices for where to hold the wedding as its smaller and you won’t need a large hotel event room or banquet hall. Instead, you could choose a vineyard and get married among the vines, or a river cabin, a beach, a boutique hotel or even a park setting.
Your guest list can be trimmed down to just close family and friends. This makes for a more intimate setting in which only those who are truly invested in your happiness are there to share your joy. This also means it will save you money. You won’t have to spend too much of your budget on wedding favours and in fact, you could make them yourself.
You can save on centrepieces, the flowers to decorate your venue with, as well as your bridal party bouquets. Plus, if you make them yourself, you can add something special to your day because you gave them the personal touch. You could have a party with your bridal party to create the pieces together. It makes for a great bonding experience.
Don’t Forget The Food And Entertainment
Even though micro weddings are smaller doesn’t mean you can’t still have a delicious five-star meal prepared for you. In fact, you can have a great meal at a much lower cost due to the smaller guest list. You can choose to support a small business venture and pick a caterer who can make your meals for a great price.
If you like, you can also cater your food yourself. This is a great idea if you love cooking or have someone in your family who does. Cooking together can bring family and friends closer and can create happy memories for the years to come. You don’t even need to make traditional and more formal food if you don’t wish. You can have a BBQ, or even pick up everyone’s favourite dishes from a local restaurant.
Just because it’s a micro wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun. You can create a theme for your wedding that your guests will love. They can dress in costumes from your favourite movie, pick a theme based on your favourite era and everyone wears the clothing from that time period, or even make a mystery theatre type reception.
Another fun and entertaining thing you could do for your reception is to hire a photo booth. You can pick an unattended photo booth or one with attendant or more depending on how extravagant you want to get with it. You can choose between packages and even mix and match props and backdrops to entertain your guests. If you like, you can keep the fun going over the entire weekend, and plan to hire the photo booth for the duration.
A micro wedding is a great option for those who want to spend their special day with only their loved ones, and to celebrate in the best way they know how.
