Micro Weddings Explained

  • 50 wedding guests or less
  • Saves money but does not lack detail
  • Ability to splurge on guests experience

A lot of couples are slimming down the wedding day guest list. However, they are not lacking in lavish details or top-shelf boozy drinks for guests. Some couples are even taking the extra budgeted money and treating guests to a paid-for hotel or Airbnb during their wedding. A micro wedding focuses more on the intimate experience that the couple creates. Often times with extra money to spend on lush florals, top tier food, or a stunning venue. A micro wedding is NOT an elopement. An elopement is a couple, photographer + officiant. With a most a small handful of guests. So while micro weddings are a smaller guest count they are certainly bold and overflowing with a loving wedding celebration!

Here is a great quote from The Knot explaining a little more about this newer trend. “While a micro wedding can definitely save you money, many couples are turning it into a macro experience. Micro weddings, however, are not the type of occasion where couples should look to cut corners from the beginning. Many couples who throw these events will splurge on a top-shelf open bar and a savory sit-down dinner simply, with intimacy in mind. With a guest list of 15 of your nearest and dearest, a tropical destination weekend wedding, a designer wedding dress or a decadent brunch at a five-star restaurant becomes much more feasible.”
