This post is for anyone who wants to have a magnificent micro wedding.
By the end of this post, you will be closer to having your dream destination, backyard, or small beach wedding.
The challenge is the ability to have large gatherings; however, many have been planning their weddings for years and don’t want to wait any longer. A micro wedding could be the perfect solution. You can still invite your close family and friends without the large wedding and reception. You can also save plenty of money and have a good reason to do so.
You’ve made up your mind. Instead of having a large wedding with 100 plus guests, you opt for a micro wedding. A small beach or backyard wedding is much more appealing at this point, and you want to do your best to limit participation as much as possible. It’s not necessarily your first choice, but it’s your best right now. This blog post will provide five tips to have your magnificent micro wedding.
We would love to save money on our wedding if possible. We certainly don’t want to cut corners in any way, but the truth is that is very difficult to do with a traditional large wedding with over 100 guests. But with a micro wedding, it’s the best of both worlds. We can still enjoy our wedding design preferences without breaking the bank completely.
The greatest news is that a micro wedding is far less stressful than a large wedding. You don’t have to worry about nearly as many invitations, RSVPs, or competing for a large venue, and again the cost will be far less.

A Magnificent Micro Wedding Guest List
This may be one of the best parts of having a micro wedding. You will significantly reduce your wedding guest list. Arranging your guest list can be one of the most stressful parts of your wedding planning for several reasons. First is the process of choosing, sending, and tracking RSVPs. Second, there is the emotionally stressful part of choosing who is best to participate in your special day.
The challenge is that it’s not proper etiquette to ask the person you’re inviting, of course, so if you have questions about whether someone should be invited, think about these few questions. How long have you known the person? When did you last speak with or spend time with the person? What are a few words you would use to describe your relationship? These questions are usually helpful in deciding whom to invite if you have a limited guest list.
I know what you’re thinking. What about all those people expecting to be a part of a larger wedding celebration? Well, you still have alternatives. You can always have a larger reception later if you prefer. That’s the amazing, flexible part about having a magnificent micro wedding.
How a Micro Wedding Registry is Different
Your registry for a micro wedding is different in a few ways. The obvious difference is that you may not have as many guests; therefore, you may not have as many gifts. But the not-so-obvious difference is that the type of gifts for your magnificent micro wedding may differ slightly from a larger traditional wedding.
A micro wedding is more intimate, meaning you will spend more time with fewer guests. You will tell stories, and the wedding will sometimes feel more like a fancy dinner party than a wedding. This means that you may not want a traditional registry.
Who knows, your guests may be more likely to give you cash instead of a gift at a micro wedding. Or they might want to be a little more creative in their gift-giving. After all, you chose them from all the people you could have invited. That’s pretty special, and they might show appreciation through their gift.
What Happens After Your Micro Wedding
Another huge advantage of having a micro wedding is the cleanup and follow-up are much easier. Rather than scores of thank you cards and concluding the arrangements for large venues, there is much less pressure whether you host a wedding in your backyard or have a beautiful destination wedding. After your micro wedding, you will still have work, but not as much as you would with a larger guest list.
Thank you for reading this post. We hope that it will help you to host your magnificent micro wedding!
The next step is to choose your wedding design.
