The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many couples to rethink their wedding plans. For many couples, holding a micro-wedding is the best solution to the health crisis. A micro wedding usually consists of around 25-50 people. For some, this number of guests may seem pretty small. However, a micro-wedding can be just as exciting as a big wedding!
Here are some ways you can get creative with your micro-wedding, and throw a party that your 25-50 guests will never forget.
Because your guest list will be much smaller than you had originally planned, you’ll be able to personalize your guests’ experience. By creating handwritten invitations for all of your guests, you’ll immediately set the tone for the event as being intimate, thoughtful, and incredibly special.
If you have a small guest list, chances are, you will be inviting the people who are closest to you and your partner. This means that most of your guests may already know each other pretty well. Take advantage of the close knit nature of your guests by creating a personalized game of bingo or trivia. Test everyone’s knowledge on each other for a fun, unique form of entertainment.
If you can’t find a professional photographer for your event, why not transform all of your guests into your photographers? Purchase some Polaroid cameras and pass them out amongst your guests. You’ll end up with a whole pile of intimate, trendy Polaroid shots of the event — in some cases, these images will capture the event better than a professional photographer ever could!
With fewer guests, you’ll be able to spend a little more time and money on the catering options. Get in touch with your guests before the event and find out what they eat and what they don’t. Most people with dietary restrictions are probably used to receiving an over-simplified meal that doesn’t compare to the other guests’ dishes — since you have fewer people, you can spend some extra time and money making sure everyone is well fed. You’ll be able to create personalized and delicious dishes for all of your friends.
With a small guest list, it’s possible for all of your guests to come together for a large group activity, whereas with larger weddings, guests tend to split off into their own separate groups. Set up a few large activities that involve all of your guests at once. For instance, you could set up a large group craft such as a mural.
With fewer guests around, it’s important to choose a space that you’ll all appreciate. You’ll want to select a venue with plenty of character and charm that suits your individual taste.
