As some couples are choosing to wed in smaller size, intimate celebrations like elopements and microweddings. At Wee Weddings, we’ve been thinking small since 2015. We know less is more. People and love over things and stuff.
What Is a Microwedding?
It’s exactly that: a mini ceremony held with your loved ones, or simply a moment of commitment shared between yourselves. Given the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, couples have been opting to move forward with weddings or mini ceremonies for a range of reasons.
What makes this event different is its size and its meaning. A microwedding is considered a commitment ceremony between you and your partner, and it can include up to 20 people—as long as you adhere to social distancing measures. The health of you and your loved ones should be priority throughout the planning and postponement process. Many couples who’ve had to postpone their nuptials are encouraged to consider a microwedding to honor their original wedding date or to move forward with this option for legal purposes.
A microwedding at Wee Weddings involves an officiant, a custom ceremony surrounded by no more than 20 of your loved ones, a legally ordained officiant, and a professional photographer to document your experience. Your microwedding can include handwritten vows, a celebratory toast, sparkler send-off, and a first dance, and more.
What do I do now?
By choosing a microwedding, you’ll share a memory with your immediate loved ones, while eventually savoring your sequel wedding later. With a microwedding, you’ll be able to prioritize spending quality time with each and every loved one at your event. This is one case in which less is totally more. Whether or not you consider yourself a shy person, your dream wedding might be saying “I do” in front of 5 to 10 witnesses you adore, followed by dinner at your favorite restaurant — with no pressure, just love. And you should absolutely do it.
Now is the time to lean into building the foundation for your marriage, while a celebration with your loved ones will most certainly follow. And if a microwedding or an elopement sounds like it’s a reflection of you as a couple, then it’s a great way to remember your wedding day in a way that was yours. Truly.
