Well, 2020 has taken the wedding world on quite a journey! The arrival of COVID-19 and all the restrictions that have followed have left the wedding industry spinning. More and more 2020 couples have had to regroup, take a new approach, and change the course of their original wedding day plans. The answer for many of them has become planning a Micro Wedding. A Micro Wedding is defined as anything that is 30 guests or less. They are still very similar to a traditional wedding, just on a smaller scale.
Micro Weddings are as special and celebratory as larger celebrations. Today, I’m going to walk you through some wedding tips and ideas to ensure that your Micro Wedding planning experience is stress-free and thoughtful.
Narrow down your guest list. Consider inviting only your closest friends and family members for your intimate affair. Your friends and family will understand the difficult circumstances involved in making the guests list.
With a smaller guest count, the sky is the limit for options to have your smaller event. You can always opt for a traditional wedding venue but restaurants, hotels, and family homes are all great options.
Livestreaming your wedding day is a great solution to include friends and family who couldn’t attend in person. There are several ways to go about this.
With fewer people on the guest list, you can use the extra money to really splurge on the details that matter most to you.
Even with a smaller wedding, you can still include the traditional components of cake cutting, toasts, and first dances! Do you have cultural customs that are traditional? Don’t forget to include those special traditions.
So much time and planning go into the details of your wedding day and it’s important to have a framework to orchestrate the flow of the day. Creating a good timeline should still include all the parts of the day from getting ready photos to the last dance at the end of the night.
I mean, you didn’t think I was going to leave this out, did you…wink, wink? But, seriously, don’t give the job to Uncle Johnny. Hire a professional to document your day, your guests, the emotions, and all the details.
There you have it! I hope these tips and ideas get you thinking about all the ways to make planning a Micro Wedding a wonderful event.
