Micro weddings have grown increasingly popular over recent years as couples choose to surround themselves with their closest loved ones for a truly personal celebration. With an intimate guest list and smaller venue choice, you can concentrate on creating a more personal and unforgettable experience for both you and your guests.
With Government COVID guidelines limiting ceremonies and wedding receptions, adopting aspects of a small wedding will ensure you do not lose out on any of the traditional atmosphere. From ways to make a larger venue seem cosier, to creative seating and handwritten notes for each guest, your special occasion will be just as memorable and joyful.
A micro wedding is known as a wedding with less than 20 guests. Being smaller in size of both guests and venue, micro weddings tend to be cheaper and far more relaxed than a traditional wedding day. For couples who have planned an early 2021 Wedding celebration, the current restriction of 15 guests is likely to remain in place, which means that pivoting to a smaller venue and event would make sense.
Micro weddings often feature aspects of wedding traditions, but on a much smaller scale. Offering the option for couples to twist traditions in innovative ways, micro weddings and venues provide a distinctive and more personalised touch to the traditional wedding.
Micro wedding venues offer couples the space to invite fewer guests, leading a more intimate ceremony for the big day. With fewer guests invited to the occasion, couples can expect to have less work in the planning process, offering a far smoother wedding planning process.
Since micro weddings provide couples the opportunity to truly strip back the planning process to the most important aspects, you can expect to focus on the people you most certainly want by your side and the experience you want to create for both you and your guests.
Couples can also expect their micro wedding to have a more simplistic approach to their celebrations with components of a ‘traditional’ wedding such as the cake cutting and first dance being optional. However, the traditions that are implemented into your micro wedding is all dependant on the personal preference.
Both flexibility and creativity can truly be unearthed with a micro wedding. When the number of guests at your wedding are reduced, the overall cost naturally goes down. With concern surrounding the economy and job security due to COVID, micro weddings most certainly alleviate some of the pressure to cater for a larger number of guests in all aspects, from food and drink to the choice of venue.
Savings that are made on the smaller wedding can be used in other areas to establish an exceptional experience for all to enjoy, from going all out on a designer dress or suit for the occasion, to beautiful décor for the venue.
Larger and more traditional weddings often see couples being unable to have a catch up with each guest. With a smaller number of guests, micro weddings offer couples the opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones in a far more intimate setting. Couples can expect to have a meaningful connection with every guest, making the personal touches far more significant.
A micro wedding might not be what you once dreamt of, but it does offer a truly magical experience for all to enjoy. Finding a suitable venue to host your celebrations in need not be a difficult process, since there are a variety of venue types to choose from.
