More and more couples are opting for small, intimate ceremonies and celebrations known as micro-weddings. What is a micro-wedding? A micro-wedding is different from an elopement in that it is a planned event, still holds traditional elements found in a classic wedding, and has attendees, just at a smaller scale. Most consist of a small guest list, a personal intimate ceremony, a couple hours of photos with dinner and a party afterwards.
Perks of The Micro-Wedding
Easy on the Wallet!
The smaller a guest count you have, the smaller the number you’ll see on your credit card statement! Less people means less money going toward food and drink, a large venue, and all the small things that add up such as invitations and favors.
Invest in Something Special to You!
Instead of putting all of your savings toward your wedding, indulge in something you truly are passionate about. Wether you and your soon-to-be spouse both have a love for the Bahamas, or you both want to go on a retreat, you can make it happen by saving with a micro-wedding.
Break the Mold for Less Stress
Some people may dream of a large wedding like in the movies, but many people simply don’t want all of that attention. If the idea of sharing one of your most intimate moments with 300 people doesn’t excite you, that’s okay! There is no right or wrong amount of people you need to invite to your wedding. Wallflowers may experience stress thinking about being surrounded by large groups of people. Talk it out with your partner, and if a small guest count is what you both want, then go for it. Remember, it’s you and your significant’s day, no one else’s.
A large event can be quite the celebration, but also puts pressure on the newlyweds to spend the entire reception visiting with potentially hundreds of people. The next day you might not remember half of those conversations due to volume. Smaller events allow you to spend more time with those that really are closest to you.
