Micro-weddings: Things you need to be successful

Tips for Making Your Microwedding the Talk of the Town

The microwedding became a trend when many wedding plans were doused by last year’s pandemic. But the trend has staying power in 2021, becoming one of the most popular trends in the wedding industry. If you plan to have a “minimony,” do it up right! This article covers some timely tips to help your microwedding be successful and fun for all.

Microwedding in a Nutshell

Some brides and grooms prefer a simple and intimate wedding ceremony. We could even call this an elaborate elopement if it’s less than ten guests and last-minute. Who says an elopement has to be plain and dull?

But most microweddings consist of less than 50 guests of the happy couple’s closest friends and family. By the way, with a microwedding, it’s okay to not allow plus ones. Most of your guests will know each other because they are a list of your family and best friends. There’s no need to include their dates if you don’t want to. In keeping with the tech age, many choose to live-stream their microwedding, so other friends can take part virtually.

A microwedding is basically a traditional wedding but with fewer guests. For more general information about microweddings, check out our blog article “Microweddings.” So, now that you know what a microwedding is, let’s take a deeper dive into how you can make yours successful.

Planning

First of all, consider your budget, location, and how many guests will attend. The venue will determine a lot of things like the group activities that you plan for your guests as well as accommodations. To minimize cost, you’ll want to make a list of priority items that you want to focus on the most like food and drinks. An open cash bar is an excellent way to treat your guests who have made the effort to attend and celebrate your special day. So, don’t go cheap when it comes to the booze! Also, keep in mind other high priority features of your wedding like the dress, the rings, the honeymoon, floral displays, and live entertainment.
