This year, many brides and grooms have had to postpone their weddings due to the pandemic and others, have chosen to have micro-weddings.
Micro-weddings are those that are fewer than 50 guests and just include your family and closest friends. These weddings are super intimate and they’re a great way to add some joy into an otherwise uneventful year. Here’s everything you need to know when planning a micro-wedding.
Create a Guest List
Creating a guest list is one of the most stressful parts of any wedding and it’s even harder for micro-weddings because you’re limited to the number of people that can come. The good news is that people can’t really get offended if they aren’t invited to your micro-wedding because the pandemic limits how many people can attend. Once you narrow down your guest list, send invites two to three months before your big day.
Set a Budget
With any wedding, before you get to planning, you need to set a budget. While micro-weddings are usually cheaper than regular ones because there are fewer people, it doesn’t mean that you have to have a budget wedding. You can spend the money you save on decorations, flowers, hair and makeup, your dress, or a band.
Start Planning Early
As soon as you decide what you want, start reaching out to vendors and make sure they have a cancelation cause in case of corona-related restrictions. Once you get your RSVPs back, you can start planning the specifics of your wedding.
There are bound to be people you wish you could have invited that won’t make the cut and in that case, you can live stream the ceremony. It’s a way to make your friends and family who can’t be there to celebrate your special day feel included.
