These terms are being used more frequently by couples who plan their weddings due to the widespread use of COVID-19, shifting attitudes and changing views about weddings. Couples want to understand what this means for their weddings and how it will affect them.
We are used to seeing large, traditional weddings. But what about small, intimate weddings?
Let’s look at each option and how they differ from traditional weddings, as well as why people might choose this way of celebrating their marriage.
A micro wedding is an intimate, small-scale wedding that has 25 or fewer guests. You would expect beautiful attire, a ceremony and photographs. A traditional wedding will also include a reception with food, entertainment, and food. It doesn’t matter how many guests you have, but it is important that you don’t make any compromises.
A micro wedding is a choice made by couples for the same reasons as an intimate wedding. They want to spend quality time with their loved ones in a joyful and beautiful setting. These couples deliberately made a smaller list of their guests.
Micro weddings challenge the idea that a couple wants to only celebrate their marriage in a meaningful way in front of large numbers of people. Even though their guest list is smaller, many couples still want to be their best selves at their wedding. They will spend time and effort to look their best. They want a wonderful meal in a lovely setting. They want a first dance, speeches and a beautiful dessert table. They have recently let go of preconceived ideas about what a wedding should be like and created their own vision for celebrating the union. They only keep what is important to them about a marriage and they get rid of everything else.
Planning a microwedding is not easy. A microwedding is difficult because there are fewer resources available to plan a wedding for small numbers of guests. Many wedding professionals don’t cater for such events. It can be difficult to find venues or vendors that are intimate without a minimum guest requirement. Couples are getting creative!
A microwedding is a smaller event, so it’s easier to find vendors that specialize in small events. A Kansas City microwedding may require a vacation rental, such as Harding Creek Hideaway and Rivers Lodge that can host the whole celebration for just a few days. This could be a private chef, or a solo performer instead of a band. Because there are usually fewer people and weekends are reserved for larger events, many couples are open to having weekday weddings.
The microwedding couple is often creative, thoughtful, and unconventional. They know that it is possible for a large party to be held on a smaller scale, and they are inventive in making this happen.
Intimate weddings are those that create an intimate atmosphere for large gatherings. This allows for a relaxed pace, quality time with family and friends, and allows you to concentrate on the important things. A typical intimate wedding guest list is between 50-75 people. Couples who want an intimate wedding invite only close friends and family. Friends of friends, casual acquaintances, or “plus” guests are not allowed to attend.
Intimate Weddings: Why
Many couples are questioning whether larger weddings are the right choice for them, despite the fact that they are more popular than ever. Many people don’t like hosting large events. They dislike small talk and feel rushed during formal events. People dislike the idea that everyone is watching them when they enter a packed ballroom or speak in the spotlight.
Intimate weddings work best for couples with few close relationships, rather than many. Witnesses of the vows should be those who are willing to support and uplift the meaning of the vows. Invited to dinner and dancing with you are those who already enjoy your meals and are supportive of you in all aspects of life.
The couple can devote all their energy, attention, and resources towards the people who are most important to them by having a smaller guest list. This allows everyone to be their best self on their wedding day. They can let their hair down and just enjoy the moment. This allows for more time with each guest, a slower pace and allows for more lingering moments. This is a great choice for people who want to share the experience, rather than be the centre of attention.
Although intimate weddings are more casual, they still offer a special experience. Intimate weddings can be just as important as any other kind of wedding. However, they are still as important as any other couple. Everyone wants to feel good, have fun, be happy, have good food, be entertained, and be in a pleasant environment.
Two venues in Kansas City are perfect for intimate weddings, Oak Street Mansion or Skyline Rooftops. They offer intimate, romantic spaces, as well as all the amenities and attention that larger venues can provide to make your day unforgettable.
Bespoke Socials defines an intimate wedding as one that is centered around close relationships. A microwedding can be included in an intimate wedding.
An elopement, unlike a small or intimate wedding, is not influenced by traditional wedding ceremonies and instead focuses solely on the ceremony. It’s all about the two of them, their vows and a beautiful place to make a lifetime commitment. The host, food, entertainment or accommodation of large groups is not important to eloping couples. Sometimes people are invited to the secret ceremony but there are usually less than 20.
Eloping is often associated with secret trips to Las Vegas. However, modern couples’ elopements are very different. Even though they are mobile, elopements can be just as unique and diverse as weddings.
