Give us all the intimate celebrations! We love them - always have, always will.
Defining Micro Wedding
A micro wedding typically includes a confirmed guest list from 10- 50 with a focus on only the very closest of family and friends, making them extremely personal. They can be held at a smaller venue or even in the privacy of your own backyard. We feel like there’s something so intimate about having people join you in a place you’ve already created so many memories in.
With Micro, the Benefits Are Maximized
- Flexibility - As with all smaller events, micro weddings give you much more flexibility on when and where you have them. A smaller wedding allows more room for creativity, focus on highly personalized details, customization and seamless coordination.
- The smaller the wedding, the more time you have to connect with guests individually. Couples who choose micro weddings invite only the closest family and friends that they want to guarantee an experience with. (And how special does it feel, to be a guest included in that?!). With a small group, you will have the time to dance with each guest. You will be able to sit with the important people in your life and have quality time with them. This is a moment neither of you will forget.
- Your Instagram dream wedding is more likely to happen - enabling you to lavish fewer guests with something memorable and special rather than more guests with something....mediocre. Love lobster and filet mignon and truffles? Treat yourself (and your guests) to all the things. Does your groom love rare whiskeys? Incorporate a whiskey tasting! Love the idea of fun touches like a fresh cotton candy cart? Yessss!
With a micro wedding, less means so much more
Micro Wedding Menu Design
- A micro wedding allows for complete flexibility - whether the traditional flow of a wedding (cocktail hour, seated dinner, dessert, cake, etc) or a more free-flowing cocktail style affair. Looking for something simple and elegant? Consider an extended post ceremony cocktail hour - as long as you communicate to your guests what to expect, they'll love whatever you do and know how to plan for themselves accordingly.
- Individual Portions - For cocktails, appetizers and any other item that may traditionally be shared or served, opt for individual servings. Small bottles of premixed cocktails or a bottle of champagne on ice per each dinner table, is not only great for guest comfort, it can be a very special moment as well. Consider mini charcuterie plates per person, individually boxed hors d'oeuvres, a picnic basket filled with goodies or individual birthday cakes when the occasion calls for it. Get creative, make it personal and guests will simply think about the charm of each touch rather than the purpose driving the presentation. Each item will feel like a special gift.
- What's for dinner - A more intimate guest count means you can splurge and customize a menu that is really reflective of your or your theme - and as you'll definitely have time to eat, make it a menu you are excited to sit down with loved ones and enjoy!
- Service style - right now, self-serve buffets, stations and family-style are just not considered safe - but it doesn't mean they aren't possible. We've worked hard to create beautiful staffed buffets and stations to create services that feel luxurious, tailored and that are safe. Our job is to be sure your guests can relax and enjoy your day safely and we've gone to great lengths to ensure that happens.
- Design for Ease and Success - Planning a backyard wedding is nothing like planning a dinner party. There are many elements to consider that won't normally come into play - especially if your guests count is beyond just a few guests - power requirements, parking, bathrooms, kitchen set-up (most home kitchens will not be able to handle a larger guest count), lighting, temperature control, rentals and flow are a few things that need to be carefully planned.
We can't wait to celebrate with you!
