Are you planning a micro wedding? This blog post will explore the increasing demand for drilling down the number of guests, making the wedding itself easier to plan and less expensive. We will also mention difficulties couples may encounter when planning a smaller wedding, as there are always two sides to every coin.
If you are looking into planning the perfect micro wedding, this blog post should be the first step in your journey.
What is a micro wedding?
A micro wedding is a celebration of marriage that has a selection of guests that have been handpicked so that the guest count is 20 people or less. Typically, a micro wedding will be shorter and more straightforward than bigger weddings, with a relaxed atmosphere and involves less planning as well as stress.
Traditional weddings will usually rack up costs, and most couples have to endure months of stress, planning and booking venues. A micro wedding takes some of the stress away and provides you with an intimate affair with close family and friends.
Benefits of a micro wedding
A micro wedding is typically associated with people, who want a laid-back event, which is affordable and will provide you with a meaningful event to celebrate the union of two people who love each other.
Micro weddings attract the attention of people who want a beautiful wedding, without the massive price tag attached. A traditional wedding will cost a large sum of money because you are paying for each of your guests, which means budgets can fly out of the window fast.
Having a micro wedding will make costs more manageable, and you will have to handpick your guests. While it might be a struggle to minimise your guest list, you will find that you will have a more personal affair as opposed to a traditional wedding. By spending less money on your wedding, you will be able to treat yourself and your spouse, whether that is on a romantic trip, a home or more.
Another benefit of a micro wedding is that you have more venue options available, as a lot more venues can accommodate smaller gatherings.
Downfalls of a micro wedding
One of the main downfalls of micro weddings will come from family and friends who don’t make the cut for your intimate affair. This is why you need to make sure a micro wedding is for you.
If you want an intimate, affordable wedding that still incorporates your style, love and family, a micro wedding might be perfect for you.
Numerous couples have had to postpone, re-do or cancel their big day because of COVID-19, so a micro wedding might be an alternative during and after this pandemic. You don’t necessarily need a massive event to showcase your love for your partner, an intimate affair, where you stand before the person you love is just as romantic and memorable.
