What Are Micro Weddings and Should You Have One?
So you’re getting married (yay)! But it’s a weird time, especially for events. Even under normal circumstances, planning a wedding is a big undertaking, and just as big of an investment. Many couples are having weddings with over 200 people. Through all of this, you might have talked about elopement, but it’s hard to cut everything out and take that plunge. That’s where micro (or mini, or tiny, or intimate) weddings come in!
What is this micro wedding you speak of?
A micro wedding is an intimate affair, typically under 20 guests. They still retain some of the time-honored traditions and structure of a wedding, but on a much smaller scale.

SO WHY SHOULD I HAVE A MICRO WEDDING?
Don’t Miss Out on a Celebration
You’ve spent likely over a year planning this life changing event. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to do something special and celebrate all the work you’ve already put in (not to mention your relationship, which was the point in the first place wasn’t it?).
Change It Up!
Maybe you had your first date at a restaurant that would have normally been too small for the size of your wedding. Or maybe you just were between a few venues and really loved more than one option! Whatever the situation, this is an opportunity to do something different than you might be doing or have done for wedding initially. Why not have the best of both worlds?
Get Your Money’s Worth
Chances are you already have your wedding dress. The groom probably has his suit, and your wedding parties have all purchased their outfits. Why not wear them more than once? Most brides only get to wear their wedding dress once and then it goes in a closet or in a box as a memory. You spent so much time and money on a gown that is perfect for you–if you have an opportunity to wear it again, why not take it?
Make It Meaningful
This is an emotional experience for everyone. Embrace it and let it be what it is. You might not be a couple who feels comfortable saying wedding vows in front of 200 people. With just your very closest friends and family around you, consider making it even more personal and take the opportunity to share your promises to each other with the people most special to you.
