What is a Micro Wedding? It is an intimate affair, typically with no more than 50 guests. It still features time-honoured traditions that make a wedding, but on a much smaller scale.
Less guests doesn’t mean that it will be less fun or stylish. It can actually be quite the opposite. With the money that you save from having a larger wedding, you can now choose to splurge on all of the little details. Go all out with your decor, flowers, or even a multi-course dinner!
Your wedding may not look like you originally thought it would, but trust me when I say that it will be better than you could have ever imagined! Having a smaller wedding means that you will have more time to spend with each and every one of your guests. It’s more relaxed and intimate so that you can enjoy your special day even more!
Where do I start when planning my Micro Wedding? The first thing to do is book your venue so that you can set a date. Whether it’s in your backyard, local hotel or favourite restaurant, make sure that you secure the location first.
Next, secure your essential wedding vendors. An officiant is vital, so book them next. Not sure where to find one? Check out Clerk Services on the City of Cornwall website or go to the municipality website where your wedding will be located.
If you’re getting married in your backyard (or other private location) hiring a caterer is a must. There are many great caterers in our area.
Finally, hiring a professional photographer to capture your event is something that you will never regret. Even if it’s just for a couple of hours, you will be thankful in the future that you invested in capturing one of the most important days of your life!
