Once you’ve decided that a micro wedding is a right fit, what to do? Here are 5 ideas you should consider for your micro wedding.
- Personalized Wedding Favors. Micro-weddings typically have a guest list of 50 people or less. This is the perfect occasion to personalize your gifts for your guests. What is special about each person? Perhaps to-go baskets with small bottles of champagne, a key chain with their initials on it, or a trivia about you and the hubby. This is the perfect moment to get creative and share a special moment that lasts forever with your guest.
- Have a themed ceremony. Fall is coming up, so this could be a great opportunity to bring some of your obsessions to life. Maybe a Halloween décor, or thanksgiving theme. What are you thankful for? Also, you could spruce up the chairs to accommodate the change in season. Everyone loves the fresh smell of fall, so perhaps hold your reception outdoors using a picnic table with seasonal floral arrangements.
- Serve a nontraditional dessert. This is the perfect occasion to infuse your heritage, depending on where you are from. You could serve the desert that is most enjoyed in your culture. This helps create a conversation among guests. You can turn it into a game; first person to guess correctly wins a prize.
- Hold your ceremony in the evening. Traditional weddings usually take place in the afternoon, but it doesn’t have to be the case for your wedding. Not only do you get the opportunity to say ‘I Do’ as the sun sets, but this also makes for great wedding photos. If you consider an evening wedding, you could skip dinner altogether and just serve light bites. This is a great way to save money, evade the hot sun, and keep your guests’ attention.
- Get Creative with the location. Where have you always wanted to get married? A beach, lake, barn with horses, country club, mountain top? You can easily get a mountain view at a winery in Maryland or Virginia. No need for you or your guest to put on hiking boots or sweat out your make-up. Because of the size of micro-wedding, you can say ‘I Do’ wherever your heart desires.
