Each Micro Wedding Focuses On the Details
Bronson van Wyck said that planning a micro wedding meant that you can focus on every last detail of the event. These typically include guests of about 30 people. He even planned a wedding that had the grandparents sitting at a sweetheart table that was socially distanced from everyone else and wore masks the entire time to stay safe.
The online retailer Etsy found that between June and July this year, there were more searches involving small-scale ceremonies. People were searching for courthouse and city hall wedding items which saw a 67% increase in searches, while there was a 29% increase in mini-monies and elopement weddings.
The Knot, which is another website, found that there was a 27% increase in couples who were planning smaller ceremonies that included themselves or just a small handful of family members.
Small Doesn’t Mean “Slapdash”
According to van Wyck, having a micro wedding doesn’t mean that it’s “slapdash” or disorganized. A couple who was supposed to get married at a St. Regis hotel decided to get married at a small and charming inn in New Jersey. Another couple decided to get married at one of their friends’ apple orchard, and this was a wedding that was planned in only 10 days, where 75 of their guests watched on Zoom.
