Since the coronavirus came to the U.S., couples have been torn between cancelling and postponing the weddings they’ve spent so much time and money planning. I’m happy to announce that it doesn’t have to be so cut and dry. There is a third option we’re obsessing over: microweddings! Could this be the best way to wed? You tell me!
Over the last year, we’ve noticed an influx of smaller weddings. But just to be clear, small does not mean your big day will be any less beautiful or special. One of the main reasons microweddings are so popular is because the couple can spend more per guest, making them feel extra special. When you have a $25,000 budget and 200 guests, you end up spending very little per person. This means once you pay for the venue and food, there’s not much left for details… I don’t know about you, but the details are my favorite part! It feels like a crime to skimp on them.
Microweddings typically have 50 people or less in attendance. A smaller crowd means more bespoke touches and tons of personalization. Imagine being able to give your guests special place card holders they could use in their home. Add a calligraphy place card to finish off the look! You could also invest in monogramed cloth napkins. I know you’re thinking that sounds a little extra, but don’t worry! You can use them again for holidays, special occasions, and dinner parties. Going the extra mile on the small details leads to a stunning, highly stylized event reminiscent of the wedding inspo photos you pinned on Pinterest.
If you follow wedding blogs and their social media accounts, you’ve probably seen some amazing styled shoots. How would you feel if that was your wedding? I imagine you’d be pretty excited! Microweddings can easily attain a high level of design with the relaxed feel of a small get-together.
