Micro Weddings, tips for planning one & some creative ideas to make it a memorable one!

Micro weddings are becoming an increasingly popular trend in the world of weddings. A micro wedding is a smaller, more intimate celebration of your love and commitment to each other. A micro wedding is characterised by it's guest count of 50 attendees or less. Anything larger would then be characterised as a smaller wedding. A micro wedding involves a handful of guests and typically some sort of celebratory party. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of a micro wedding, tips for planning one, and some creative ideas to make it a memorable day.

  1. Benefits of a Micro Wedding:

  • More Intimate: With fewer guests, micro weddings allow you to have a more intimate and personal celebration with your closest friends and family.

  • More Affordable: A smaller guest list means lower costs for food, decorations, and other expenses. This makes micro weddings a more affordable option for couples who want a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank.

  • More Personalized: With a smaller guest list, you have more opportunities to personalize your wedding and create a unique experience for everyone in attendance.

  1. Tips for Planning a Micro Wedding:  While you are planning a micro wedding, there are some macro-sized logistics involved in the process. This is where a micro wedding checklist comes in handy.  
  • Start with your guest list: Decide on the people you want to invite and work from there. This will help you determine the size and scope of your wedding. 

    This is another item that can be checked off in the early stages of wedding planning and should be finished with enough time to send out a save the date a couple of months before the wedding. 

    Having invites or save-the-dates out early allows for all of your guests to plan ahead and figure out any travel plans with enough time to still have good rates and availability. Plus, micro-weddings require a fair bit of exclusivity in terms of invites, so having this out of the way early encourages a strong turn-out. 

  • Choose a venue: Select a venue that is intimate and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. For some, a specific wedding theme could decide the location of your wedding venue. For others, the theme doesn’t impose on potential venue space. The answer will change from couple to couple, however, it’s always important to take your guest list size into consideration, as well as your budget. 

  • Get creative with your menu: A smaller guest list allows you to get creative with your menu and provide a unique dining experience. One of the many benefits of having fewer guests is the opportunity to spend more per head when it comes to food to make your wedding extra special. Give your guests a night to remember with unforgettable food. At many small wedding venues, catering is a breeze. 

  • Focus on the details: With a smaller guest list, you have more time and resources to focus on the details and make your wedding day special.

  1. Creative Ideas for a Micro Wedding:  Decorations are a creative way to enhance your theme and elevate your aesthetic—they’re an important part of all weddings, regardless of size. Finding decorations that fit your personality will help make the big day even more special. 

    Music truly sets the tone of any event, so having music that speaks to your dream wedding should not be overlooked. Consider a live band to walk you down the aisle, or ask your friend about the DJ they had at their wedding if you had a great time there. 

  • Destination wedding: Choose a beautiful location, such as a beach or mountain resort, and have a destination wedding with your closest friends and family.

  • Intimate elopement: Plan an elopement that is just for the two of you, or with a few close friends and family.

  • Outdoor wedding: Have an outdoor wedding in a scenic location, such as a park or garden, for a beautiful and intimate celebration.
