Planning an Amazing Micro Wedding

How to Plan a Small (but Unforgettable) Wedding

There are many reasons to make your wedding a smaller up there. Maybe you don’t want the hassle of a big crowd, maybe you have such a big circle of friends and family that it’s hard to choose a guest list at all. A micro wedding is a wonderful way celebrate your union and treat your closest friends and family to a celebration they truly feel a part of.

One of the big perks of having a micro wedding is that your choices for ceremony and reception venues are basically endless. You can rent any number of historic Mansions or private homes that may suit your style and purposes perfectly. Additionally, with a low guest count you may be able to use a multitude of public spaces including plazas, parks, and even bridges! Just about anywhere you have a special memory with your partner can be considered.

If you need a hand organizing your ideas, a wedding coordinator can be hired to help! Wedding coordinators have great ideas, and some even make themselves available for consultation appointments, giving you some guidance but otherwise staying hands-off. Whatever the couple needs.

With fewer people attending your wedding you can make a much bigger impact in terms of florals and styling and food. You do not have to hold back because you are having a small wedding, build the chuppah or flower arch of your dreams! Decorating a smaller space is less costly but often looks better in photos. Going big with tabletop styling or having your favorite restaurant cater your reception space will impress your guests and create the perfect ambiance for an intimate celebration. Restaurant venues will be an option available to you for rehearsal dinners and many have private dining rooms that will hold a reception feast for you and your guests.

Don’t forget to hire a photographer and videographer to capture the joy of your wedding festivities. Not just your wedding day but your rehearsal and any outings you plan for your guests. As your photographers, we are more than happy to go along with you to capture your entire wedding weekend. We will spend time getting to know you as a couple during the planning process so that by the time we shoot your wedding, we are all comfortable together. We are always honored to be a part of or couples’ big day.

Planning a micro wedding is a little simpler than an event with a heavy guest list, but there’s still many things to think consider. We hope this helped give you some great ideas for your micro big day. Remember, a small wedding doesn’t mean a small celebration!
