Intimate wedding celebrations were beginning to trend prior to Covid-19. With recent restrictions, however, more and more brides are considering a micro wedding in lieu of postponing their big day. The happy couple is ready to tie the knot and the unknown time frame of when things will return back to normal is making micro weddings a popular choice.
So what is a micro wedding? It’s a smaller scale celebration and often includes no more than 30 guests. The timeline is shorter and more casual. The guest list typically consists of immediate family and tight knit friends. It lends itself to a more personal experience for everyone involved. Couples don’t have to sacrifice the chance to celebrate during these uncertain times. And with the smaller headcount, couples can stretch the budget farther to include perfecting those wedding details or putting more towards the honeymoon!
Stem & Light has had the wonderful opportunity of hosting micro wedding celebrations since re-opening in May. Because our venue is smaller in comparison to typical larger venues, our space feels cozy and appropriate to host these beautiful occasions. The feedback we have received from brides has been overwhelmingly positive. Not just about our space, but about the micro wedding experience itself.
As we continue to host micro weddings, we are learning how to make the experience even better for our couples. We are offering packages including florals, photography, videography, and even linens. All in a package deal to offer our brides convenience and peace of mind in securing high quality services.
We believe micro weddings will only increase in popularity in the coming months. And it isn’t a trend that needs to fade out once the health crisis is over. We think brides will appreciate the intimate and memorable gathering a micro wedding produces at a budget friendly price.
