Micro Weddings: The New Wave

There is something about being surrounded by the people who mean the most to you on the day you marry the love of your life. Traditional wedding ceremonies are filled with extended family and family friends you felt obligated to invite out of guilt, only to then find yourself running around awkwardly thanking people you haven’t talked to in years. Did you really spend your time the way you wanted to on what’s supposed to be the best day of your life?

Many couples have opted out of inviting all their neighbors, cousins, and parents’ friends for much smaller, more intimate “I do” moments. COVID-19 started this trend. Couples were forced to either change their date or do what they could, considering the social distancing mandates. Although, we have a funny feeling that micro weddings are here to stay.

What is a Micro Wedding?

A micro wedding is like any other wedding, with fewer chairs. The soon-to-be wedded still dress their best from head to toe, meet at the altar, and seal the deal with a kiss. They are held anywhere from a backyard to the most beautiful destinations in the world.

Micro weddings are all about the feels. The special atmosphere of being surrounded by the people who mean the very most to you is magical. These smaller, intimate weddings are meant to reflect the personalities of the couple to create an unforgettable celebration of love.

Why Would a Couple Want to Have a Small Wedding?

Great things come in small packages. There are many reasons why couples would want to have a smaller wedding, here are a few:

  • Relax with closest friends and family
  • Couples aren’t wasting time or money on people they won’t speak to in five years
  • Splurge on the things that matter most to couples

When you don’t have as many guests to spend money on, you can focus your attention on details of the wedding, the location, the dream dress, and more.

Celebrating Later

Just because you decide to have a small wedding, that doesn’t mean the celebration has to stop there. Couples can still have a party later, you can think of it as the reception. The party can be back home in your small town, at a venue or someone’s house, with all the guests you would have had at a large wedding.

Typically, the celebration is a bit more informal than a traditional wedding reception. There is still food and music, and maybe even a first dance and speeches. There are many ways to go about the party, but the best part? What you do is totally up to you! Intimate weddings and the parties that follow are perfect for couples who want to get creative. While the party will still cost you money, it won’t burn as deep of a hole in your pocket as a large and lavish wedding.

The after-party can include fun outdoor activities and of course a DJ, and that’s where we come in.
