Do you want the spirit of an elopement but with just a few more people? Do government regulations keep you from having the large wedding you may have hoped for? A micro wedding is a wedding ceremony and reception with a guest list of 50 guests or fewer — most likely immediate family and friends. Many brides and grooms are now considering micro weddings which are simply just smaller and more intimate celebrations.
Let’s explore some benefits to having a micro wedding:
- Creates room in the couple’s budget
The number of guests you invite influences every part of the wedding budget. By keeping the invite list short, it allows the couple to enhance the guest experience by setting a higher budget for what they value most, such as photography, food, venue, etc.
- An intimate experience
The couple will have more time to spend and interact with their guests which may make for a more memorable day. They are surrounded by friends and family that they can actually engage with.
- Easier to manage
A smaller guest list = an easier time navigating major surprises, such as a last-minute venue change or… a pandemic.
By hosting a micro wedding, the couple will have an intimate celebration with the opportunity to elevate the guest experience by being able to customize details and spend on special elements. All in all, it is a more relaxed day, a less stressful planning process and so much more fun!
