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!
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! This should be at the forefront of your intimate 'I do's", kapish? Photo by: Starling Studio
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
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!
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. The style world is your oyster. Until then, shop our 42 different styles, and 39 different colors: Bridesmaids Dresses
