Not long ago, most brides and grooms dreamed of large, luxurious weddings with everyone from all moments of their lives present on the most important day of their lives–who wouldn’t want to celebrate in the most grand way? But times have changed and the present challenges have pushed couples to go for smaller weddings. Hence, micro weddings have made their way into the scene and are showing us that they’re just as meaningful. Yes, you can have an utterly romantic micro wedding with less than 20 guests! Not only that, micro weddings come with perks that make wedding planning easier. If you’re still doubtful if a micro wedding is for you, maybe reading these 8 perks will change your mind.
(1) It’s easier to manage changes.
If you’re having a micro wedding, last-minute changes are easier to manage. Large weddings come with a long list of details that you need to monitor closely while micro weddings have less details. This means that one change will affect less factors and you can be more flexible.
(2) Your weddings will feel more like an elopement.
Because micro weddings involve a very limited number of people, your wedding will feel like an elopement. It’s definitely going to feel more intimate, too. Think of it like an escape with your nearest and dearest. Which brings us to the next point..
(3) It’s more personal.
Micro weddings are truly more personal. You will have more time to connect with your guests individually, something you can’t do if you have a large wedding.
(4) It’s easier on the pocket.
Micro weddings will surely cost you less. From the head count alone, you’ll be able to save a lot on the catering expenses. This gives you room to spend a little more on other weddings items that you have have had to scrimp on if you had a large wedding.
