Have you heard about the new micro wedding trend? MissNowMrs has been around for 13+ years, so we love when something new happens in the wedding industry!
A micro wedding is an intimate ceremony and celebration with 20 people or less. Why is this such a hot trend? COVID put a crimp in most couples’ wedding plans with closed venues and the ban on large gatherings. So, couples are creating tiny celebrations instead of large ones.
There are some definite benefits to micro weddings. First, they’re very economical. Planning a wedding for 20 instead of 200 guests is much more budget friendly. Second, micro weddings are less stress. Couples can plan an event that is in line with who they are and what the want, instead of adhering to rigid traditions and expectations. Finally, micro weddings can be held in myriad places. Couples can be creative and gather in a space that suits them and the season.
Micro Wedding Venues
With the rise of micro weddings comes the creation of micro wedding venues. Instead of large hotel ball rooms, these micro venues tend to be tiny and unique. Couples are now planning to get married on mountain tops, boat decks, farm fields, and in the forest. Woodsy weddings are the new rustic wedding, and we love them!
We’re enjoying all of the creativity going into these events. With only 20 guests, couples can DIY to their hearts content. From sliced log chargers, to tiny wild flower bouquets, and handmade favors, micro is so sweet and personal.
What are your thoughts on the micro wedding trend? Do you think they’re a good idea? Or, do you feel like these couples should wait and have their originally planned larger weddings?
