While micro-weddings, which I prefer to call intimate weddings, have been popping up on the scene over the last few years, they are gaining some major traction in 2020. Due to all the government restrictions and health concerns in the wake of the coronavirus, an intimate wedding is a lovely way to make the most of the current world situation (and for the brides out there, to wear your wedding dress ASAP).
If you're considering an intimate wedding for your upcoming nuptials, here are a few benefits:
✨ Increased time with your loved ones
You'll have the opportunity to spend more time with each guest. Couples often stress over making sure they find the time to chat with every attendee at their wedding. A smaller guest list guarantees more quality time with each of them!
✨ Quality over quantity
You can reallocate your budget. With less guests, you can go big on things like food and beverage (hello fancy champagne all night long 🍾) or splurge on that extravagant ceremony arch you saw on Pinterest.
✨ Less stress
Hosting an event can be stressful, regardless of the length of the guest list. However, with 50 guests or less, you may feel less pressure to make sure that everyone is happy. Plus, for you introverts out there, there will be less people focused on you.
The biggest challenge you'll face if you opt for an intimate wedding? Re-working that guest list! Keep in mind that your guests will understand that you choose to have an intimate wedding and simply can't invite everyone you had hoped. After all, your wedding, no matter the size, is for you and your partner. ❤️
