Plans change but that doesn't make them any less special. If you are part of those that have decided to ditch their big, traditional wedding and opted for a smaller ceremony...we have the needed tips to make it happen. Whether you elope or invite minimal guests, we have tallied up ways to plan your micro wedding so that it will still be the big day that you have always dreamed of.

What's a micro-wedding? That is a great question. Honestly, this word wasn't exactly one we heard a lot until this year. It has felt like Oprah giving away cars."You get one! You get one! You’ll have one!" A micro-wedding is typically made up of less than 30 people or at the minimum 10. As a couple that plans a wedding, you have a say in what a micro wedding looks like to you. It's more than just a number. It is the intimate experience that you want to create. See below some tips on planning your big 'little' day.

Creating the List.

Whether you are planning your micro wedding because of COVID-19 or you just always wanted a smaller wedding, your guest list is essential. Focus on family, life-long friends, and then extended family. You want the ones that love and care for you the most to be there. This is about you and your significant other embarking on your new journey and having the people who have been there along the way surrounding you. Plus, there is always Zoom! Those that did not make the invite cut can still be present on your big day!

Be Safe. Wear a Mask.

Wearing a mask has become the new 'something blue". Safety is so important during your micro-wedding. Provide your guests with masks. Station out dining tables and chairs so that everyone feels comfortable while they chow down on surf n’ turf. We suggest having someone stand by with a thermometer to take temperatures when entering the ceremony and reception. Your loved ones and your health is important!

Budget, baby!

Having a smaller wedding leaves room for things that you might not have thought to spend money on. Investing more into your cocktail hour, incorporating video services, entertaining your guests with a wine tasting before or after the wedding, and having more fun with the venue and decor, are just one of the many options. This could be a great way to not splurge but save some money too! Cha-ching! Use the extra bucks to start a savings account for a downpayment on a new home, or when it's honeymoon time let loose more at the tiki bar. Photo by: Starling Studio

Make It 'YOU".

Create a wedding that is very ‘YOU’. Are you an early bird? Get married at sunrise. Maybe you love being on the water and a boat ride ceremony is the front runner of spots to say, “I do”. Things have changed, and so have plans. You can still have the day you've always dreamed of. Think of all the beautiful and intimate things about you and your partner and go from there. It could be your love of game nights or cooking so incorporate those fun moments together into your big day! We'd love to see the guests play sous chef!

Serve Some LEWKS!

When it comes to figuring out what you and your bridal party are going to wear (yeah, we think you should still keep your bridesmaids), have a little more fun! Whether that means wearing a couple of dresses from ceremony to the reception, have your future hubby and his grooms spice things up with their socks and ties, or mix and match your #bridesquads dresses.
