With COVID-19 and all the restrictions placed on large gatherings, many brides have had to rethink the idea of a big wedding. While the headcount might need to be reduced, there are still plenty of ways to have the big day you always dreamed of. Micro weddings are the newest solution to smaller wedding ceremonies. Done right, it can still be a memorable intimate-style wedding that offers all the glamour and luxury you always wanted.
Here are some tips for throwing the perfect luxurious micro wedding.
Create a Dream Guest List
While you might be worried that keeping your guest list smaller is going to be an issue, remember that we are in an unprecedented season, and everyone understands the logistics. For one, the typical 100-200 guests to fill the ceremony venue may not be possible. If you can only have a maximum of 50-75 people then choose only your nearest and dearest to make the event an especially intimate and memorable one for those who mean a lot to you. Start by jotting down a list of your immediate family and closest of friends. In these smaller gatherings it’s so much more about experience and sharing in the timeless moment with your closest family and friends. Things are different, but there is a special, new way to make memories.
Upgrade the Food, Drinks & Music
One of the best ways to have an extravagant wedding celebration is to have the best of the best in these 4 elements: food, beverages, decor and music. With a smaller guest count, you’ll have more room in the budget to go really high-end and over the top with enhancements. Lots of delectable cuisine options, top shelf liquors and wine, the best music and special effects like lighting and décor you never dreamed possible.
Hire a Good Photographer
No matter what size your wedding is, getting a solid photographer is a must. Also consider a videographer and streaming options like GoPro to let loved one who can’t attend enjoy the festivities from the safety of their homes. Weddings are about creating memories that will last a lifetime; and to achieve that, you need someone to capture your micro-wedding’s most intimate and cherished moments. When interviewing photographers and other professionals, remember that you want someone who will do everything it takes to capture the perfect shot and really capture the essence of your entire day for you to long remember.
Pick A Venue the Delivers Everything & More!
When it comes to throwing a micro-wedding that you can feel great about, you need a venue that’s going to go above and beyond to deliver the high-class, luxury you want your guests to experience on your big day. When you’re looking for a location to have your micro-wedding in Connecticut, be sure to speak with the venue about the enhancements they offer and how they can help to make your smaller wedding an event as grand as possible.
