Is a Micro Wedding Right for Me?

1st Jul 2020

This incredibly intimate wedding trend is growing fast and there is so much more to it than simply saving money. 

Micro weddings still feature the time-honoured traditions that make a wedding but on a much smaller and more personal scale.  They have a strong focus on guest experience and are more relaxed and shorter in length with a more simpler feel.


The advantage of a micro wedding is that it doesn’t have to include all the components of a traditional wedding day, just the ones that are important to you.  If tradition doesn’t resonate with your values or vision, there’s no pressure to include it but if it does, then great, include it.

Getting married on a smaller scale means you can create a more luxurious, personal and bespoke experience for your closest friends and family.  A micro wedding is very relaxed and there is more time to chat, more time to just enjoy your time together and you get this incredible supportive, happy and warm atmosphere.

It doesn’t mean having to compromise on style or the type of day you want. The guest list may be small but the day will be big on style and atmosphere.  It’s all about how you want your wedding to be and not about pleasing everybody else.
