Misconceptions About Micro-Weddings

⁣With so many changes happening we’ve been hearing a lot about this term ‘Micro Wedding.’ By definition a Micro Wedding is a small, intimate celebration of 2-50 people. Many of the formalities are the same while some are different.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


But one thing is for certain. This trend is here and it could be here to stay! So we've compiled three of the Biggest Misconceptions about Micro Weddings!⁣

𝟏. 𝐀 𝐒𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝗪𝐞𝐝𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐀 𝐂𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- Micro is not synonymous with Minimal. If anything, a Micro Wedding is an opportunity to elevate the guest experience, make the celebration more intimate and personal, and even add some refined things that monetarily wouldn’t be possible for a larger group.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- Some formalities typically stay, such as a cake cutting, first dance, and a dinner. The biggest difference is simply the guest count. It is still your special day and can be everything you’ve dreamed of!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


𝟐. 𝐈 𝗪𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐆𝐞𝐭 𝐌𝐲 𝐃𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝗪𝐞𝐝𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- While it is true you may not be able to pack everyone into the dance floor, with a Micro Wedding you have the ability to make all of the other moments more special. And with a smaller guest count, you get more time to spend with each guest, instead of shuffling between them all trying to say 'Hi' to everyone. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- The great thing about your wedding day is that there are no rules! Focus on what’s important to you. Since you may be saving money on food, splurge and rent a cloud machine or cold sparks to make those first dance pictures show-stopping. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- If you dream it, your vendors can make it come true!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


𝟑. 𝐀 𝐒𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐫 𝐆𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐋𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐌𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬 𝐋𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝗪𝐨𝐫𝐤, 𝐒𝐨 𝐈 𝐂𝐚𝐧 𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐋𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐃𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐍𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐀 𝐃𝐉 𝐎𝐫 𝐎𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐕𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐫𝐬⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- Even if you don’t think you’ll be dancing the night away, you’ll want someone in charge of your music. A DJ can still be hired to run speakers and music for your ceremony, and don’t forget about microphones! Some DJs are even offering live-streaming services, so while your guest list is shorter, those unable to attend can still celebrate with you. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

- All vendors help with smooth transitions. Even if you’re getting married in your parents backyard, having someone there to help take care of things and be the point-person alleviates then stress on yourself and you’re family. If anything more couples are hiring Day-Of Coordinators for these smaller events. You and your guests shouldn't be setting up every transition, it's still your wedding day!
