Why Micro Weddings Might Be the Answer in This Pandemic
Micro weddings have been around for several years. With this pandemic, however, micro weddings are coming back into the limelight. Many experts in the wedding industry agree that we will likely see a lot more of micro weddings in the future and as a result of this pandemic. We at Fairy Godmother agree with them. That’s why we thought we should share a bit on micro weddings in this post. We’ve handled a couple of Bakersfield micro weddings, and so we have a bit of experience where they’re concerned. So, grab a drink, take a seat, and let’s talk a bit about what’s involved in a micro wedding.
First, What Is A Micro Wedding?
In the traditional sense, micro weddings are known as small weddings. They usually consist of typically 50 guests or less. Most of Bakersfield’s small weddings are attended by the immediate family of the couple, an officiant, and the wedding vendors. Micro weddings are of many kinds, and an example is pop-up weddings that feature less than ten people. In a world like ours, where social distancing is suddenly vital to our safety, we might find ourselves turning more and more to micro weddings. It might be our safest bet down the line. So now that we are stuck with micro weddings are there any advantages that come with having one? The answer is yes. There are lots, we discuss them in the following paragraphs.
They Are More Intimate
It’s easy to see how this one is possible. If you have 200+ guests at your wedding, it’ll be a lot more challenging to say hi to all of them than if you have 50 and less. The smaller your number of guests, the easier it will be for you to personalize your wedding and relate with everyone individually. For example, you can easily write a personalized thank you note for every guest.
You’ll Have Lots of Room to Get Creative
They’ll be fewer people present to get offended that you have changed an age-old tradition, and you can get as creative as you want. The people around will be on your side anyway. They will, after all, be people that know and have stood by you for many years.
The Budget Is Less
One thing every couple knows is that the more guests you have, the more you’ll have to spend. Having fewer people means that couples on a tight budget can stretch their dollar more. For couples that aren’t necessarily on a tight budget, it can mean more savings and a higher quality wedding. It will undoubtedly appeal to a lot of couples in this period because the economy seems to be taking a direct hit from the pandemic too.
You Can Still Involve People Who Are Not Around
If you wanted to have a big wedding and due to the pandemic have had to cut down, there is still a way to involve the guests who didn’t make it to your new list. It’s the same way that we’ve been keeping in touch with loved ones and planning weddings the whole time: virtually. You can set up a Livestream for guests who are not attending. You also have the option of shipping gift boxes to thank them for being with you even though not physically.
