How To: Micro Weddings

Feb 01, 2021

We all know this past year has been crazy, but that doesn’t mean love has stopped! Micro weddings have proven to be the perfect solution to celebrate your love in a safe and intimate way! Curious on how to get started planning your micro wedding? We’ve got you covered!

 

 

Choose Your Guest List

 
The typical guest list for micro weddings is generally under 50 people. Sit down and think about your closest friends and family. This probably does not include your mom’s friend’s third cousin! You want the most special people in your life surrounding you on your big day. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t speak to them on a regular basis, don’t include them on your guest list! Worried about leaving people out? Try including more distant friends and family on your big day by live streaming your wedding ceremony on Zoom!

 

 

Find Your Venue 

 
One of the many benefits of a micro wedding is that you can be super creative about your venue! When you’re not planning on hosting hundreds of guests, you can look into alternative locations that would not have been possible before. Why not find a scenic outdoor venue somewhere nearby with a stunning view? Or does one of your family friends have a beautiful backyard that could be transformed into your dream outdoor space? Many local wedding venues are even offering micro wedding packages that could be perfect for your big day!

 

 

Book Your Vendors

 
Not hosting as many guests may mean you can splurge on a few of your vendors! Why not book that photographer whose work you have always loved? Or the catering company whose dinner is to die for? You could even book a live band or a great DJ to entertain your closest guests all night! Your micro wedding is the perfect opportunity to work with top notch vendors that may have been out of budget with a much larger guests list!

 

Get Creative With Your Decor

 
One of the many perks of having a micro wedding is that you can be as creative as possible with your decor! Why not DIY your centerpieces? Whereas you may not feel inclined to tackle a DIY project for a wedding with hundreds of people, micro weddings can be the ideal opportunity to be hands on with your wedding planning.
