In today’s world, COVID-19 protocols have restricted the size of our social gatherings. But we remain social people, especially in Silicon Valley! So many groups are exploring creative new ways to gather and exciting ways to celebrate, leading to a boom in micro-events. For weddings, this has meant an explosion of intimate micro-weddings.
As the poet Maya Angelou said, “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
So, instead of waiting to throw the big wedding when the pandemic tapers off, couples are opting for micro-weddings now.
What are Micro Weddings and What Are Their Advantages?
Micro weddings are small gatherings of about 20 guests. They offer these advantages:
- Less expensive, so you can explore more creative menus
- Fewer guests to entertain, so you can tailor the event to their preferences
- Less complicated to plan and execute
- Can easily fit into an afternoon or evening
- Definitely focus on quality over quantity
- Will be less stressful for everyone involved
