Good morning everyone! As I am writing this blog, I have moved nine of my 2020 weddings into the “COVID” folder. I have brides who have moved their date later into the year, brides who are cancelling their receptions and dropping their guest list down to ten, and brides who may be looking at cancelling the event they had planned altogether.
As unpredictable as the future is right now, I’ve been hearing the phrase “micro wedding” a lot more, and I want to share about it on my blog as a way to inspire brides! I want brides to know they have options!
A micro wedding typically includes a guest list of up to 50 people. Unlike an elopement, attended only by the couple, there is still a ceremony and reception with some of the elements you would find at a typical wedding such as florals, and dinner. Micro weddings can even include as few as ten of your closest family members. It’s an opportunity to throw a beautiful celebration without feeling like you aren’t getting the type of event you’ve dreamed of.
Use the intimate number of guests to make a big impact. For my own wedding day, we had around 50 guests. I loved that I had to time to chat with each and every person present. For example, I love the idea of having an evening ceremony with dinner at one long family-style table!
Just a quick Google search will give you all kinds of ideas on how to make your intimate micro wedding feel just like your own!
Typical wedding photography collections begin at 8 hours of coverage. Micro weddings may not need as much coverage. For brides who are interested in hosting a micro wedding, I am happy to offer a custom collection. All you need to do is ask!
I know that during this unique time wedding vendors are doing their best to be as accommodating as possible. I have worked with vendors across the state, and sat in on zoom calls with weddings vendors as we have tried to come up with the best ways to serve our clients.
Is a micro wedding the right step for you? Let me know what you think!
