Why the Trend of a Micro-Wedding is a Beautiful Option
2020 has not been a fun year. The fun planned events that were once highly anticipated were now canceled and as the year went on, realized that these celebrations may not be what we first envisioned them to be. But a new quarantine trend has developed among the wedding circuit. They are called “micro-weddings.”
Many of us who have dreamed about our big day, probably saw the day with a large audience of all of our friends and family, near and far. But a micro-wedding is the complete opposite of that. A micro-wedding is a wedding on a much smaller scale with no more than 50 guests. You still keep all of the wedding traditions but with fewer guests. While this may not be your first choice as to how to celebrate your nuptials, if you think about the benefits and the pros of this route, we are sure that this may be an even more ideal day than you think.
Here are some benefits of a micro-wedding:
More variety and unique venue options
With a smaller wedding, your options for unique and special wedding venue options have increased. While a large wedding at a golf course or large banquet hall is nice, you can make the venue even more special by potentially hosting it at either a favorite restaurant of you and your partner. Maybe it is the place you had your first date. Or behind the backyard of your family’s home. If you and your partners are book lovers, maybe a romantic setting is in a library. With a smaller guest list, your options can be more personable and special.
Less guest list drama
No need to worry about having to invite your grandparent’s best friend’s daughter’s family. No worries about anyone showing up with a guest list of their own. Keeping the guest list size small allows you to choose people who are the most meaningful in your life. No need to feel obligated to invite coworkers or distant relatives. The people who are at your micro-wedding will be those that will remain such a large significance in both of your lives.
Ability to create a more personalized affair
With a smaller wedding, your budget may allow now for a more personalized wedding. Getting wedding favors that will truly be a keepsake that they will hold onto forever or creating a dinner menu that is unique and filled with treats loved by you both. Bring in elements that make your wedding unique and intimate.
More quality time with your guests
This is the most wonderful pro about a micro wedding. Many times, the bride and the groom are so busy making sure that they say hello to all of their guests, they hardly have time to enjoy their day.
With a smaller number of guests, your special day will be filled with enough time to spend these special moments with the people you love while also celebrating each other and experiencing your monumental day.
And don’t forget, sending out electronic wedding invites is always a good idea. With our many wedding online wedding design options, there will be one that fits your special day. Use our free custom wedding invitation design services to create the perfect design to coordinate with your wedding.
