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!
