2020 has been the year of micro weddings, as most couples are faced with the tough decision of either rescheduling their wedding or holding an intimate gathering. So what exactly is a micro wedding? Like the name suggests, it is a wedding which includes a guest list of up to 50 guests, often immediate family and close friends. While the wedding is small, it still honors traditions that make a wedding. Micro weddings allow the experience of an elaborate wedding without breaking the budget. Couples often combine an elopement and a reception to create their micro wedding. Some couples even choose to do a micro wedding for their anniversary or vow renewal.
So how do you plan a micro wedding of your own? First it is vital to find the right wedding venue. It is easier to find a venue and then tailor your guest list to fit. Next you need to cover the basics. Regardless of size, all weddings need great food, music and alcohol. Weddings are a celebration and people love to come together to share a meal and dance! Wedding attire is still important; it is special to get dressed up in attire specifically for the occasion. You and your grandchildren will look back at photos that it is key to look fabulous on your wedding day! With photos, you will need a great photographer. You will want to document your special day no matter what, and with a smaller guest list, you also have a smaller shot list, so you can talk to your photographer about creating custom packages for a shorter amount of time. You want to create a personal experience for your guests. Writing hand written notes to every guest guarantees a super close connection with every person, making those little touches more meaningful. Now that you have all the basic information, it is time to start planning!
