In 2020, micro weddings gained popularity due to capacity issues, but their desirability continues to gain steam. Micro weddings are small, intimate events for couples to enjoy their closest friends and family. Whether it’s a formal gathering or a casual get-together, micro weddings are the perfect opportunity to create lifelong memories with loved ones.
What is a Micro Wedding?
A micro wedding is an event with less than 50 guests and offers the flexibility of a smaller gathering without sacrificing the traditions of a larger celebration. Micro weddings are an affordable option for couples who want to save on their event or spend their budget elsewhere. Options are endless for micro weddings, as these intimate events are low pressure and fully personalized.
4 Micro Wedding Ideas
In essence, Micro weddings simply have a smaller guestlist, which gives couples the freedom of customization and personalization. If you’re planning your nuptials, consider these fun micro wedding ideas for your special day.
Skip the Big Dinner
With a smaller group, it’s easier to mingle and enjoy one another’s company. This is the perfect opportunity to skip the traditional wedding dinner. Instead, opt for creative cocktails and snacks. Consider having passed hors d’oeuvres or small plates served throughout the evening.
Keep the Guest List Short
This is the time to have just your closest loved ones by your side. Your micro wedding guest list doesn’t need to include old friends you hardly talk to, casual coworkers, or extended family members. You can also keep your party intimate by eliminating the option for plus-one invites for guests without spouses.
Make it Casual
Your micro wedding can feel more like a party than a traditional wedding if you want it to. If black ties and cocktail dresses aren’t your jam, consider making your micro wedding a casual event where guests can come as they please.
Have Fun With Games
A micro wedding gives the special couple more flexibility to enjoy the evening without forced mingling and small talk. Have a fun evening of yard games like corn hole, bocce, jumbo jenga, horseshoes, ladderball, and more. Some couples will love the opportunity to set up an evening of friendly competition.
