Everything You Need To Know About Micro Weddings
Many people underestimate the power of an intimate micro wedding. They may even consider planning a micro as being synonymous with eloping. However, in this blog, we will dispel all of these assumptions. Micro weddings are a great option if you’re looking to make the most out of your big day while on a budget. When you plan a micro wedding, you are blessed with many more options in terms of choosing an intimate setting and choosing the best menu possible. It’s no secret that if you’re hosting a large wedding (unless you have an unlimited bank account), your options may be somewhat limited. However, with a micro-wedding, you could have it at the beach or in a beautiful garden, instead of having to opt for a traditional church or a grande hall. In addition, you will also be able to select more expensive and premium options when you choose your menu because you’ll be catering to a smaller number of people.
To dispel the rumors of micro weddings being the same as elopement, a micro wedding is a wedding that hosts less than 20 guests. As such, it could become a destination wedding (since the guest list is smaller, so it will be easier for all your guests to fly out for your wedding). However, this is not always the case. In this blog, we’ll explore some of the key benefits that you’ll experience if you choose to plan and host a micro wedding.
1. Reduced Cost
The obvious benefit that you’ll experience, and our first point, is that micro weddings are a million times cheaper than regular more traditional weddings, or large weddings. This is usually the case for obvious reasons. If you’re planning a wedding for a guest list of up to 100 people (unless each person is paying for their meal and a share of the venue cost, which is highly unlikely) this will usually be quite expensive. However, if you’re planning a wedding for less than 20 people, you’ll be responsible for paying for less meals and can opt for a smaller venue. Overall, your wedding’s total cost will be significantly cheaper.
2. Greater Intimacy and Lower Stresses
Micro weddings are usually very intimate and stress-free. When planning a wedding that is designed to host less than 20 people, you’ll find that your job will require a lot less work. This will allow you to spend more time in the proverbial “honeymoon” phase with your fiancé, instead of having to constantly worry about all of the little details involved with hosting a large wedding. Also, the micro wedding is a lot less chaotic due to the reduced guest list. As such, this will further help to ease your tension when you finally say, “I do.”
