COVID-19 has turned so many of our lives upside-down, from work-related changes to financial struggles. There is one part of life that doesn’t have to change, though. You can still marry the love of your life. Before canceling the big day, consider if a micro wedding, with just your spouse-to-be and a few beloved guests, is right for you.
1. Ideally, what would be your guest list size?
The idea of a micro wedding revolves around lowering your guest count to under 50 people. It brings your wedding back to an intimate celebration of your commitment surrounded with those closest to you. In larger weddings, you are splitting your time between your many guests and are lucky if you get a little more than a few words with each of them.

2. Are you looking to lower your wedding budget?
The average cost of a wedding in the US is $33,900 — that’s some major sticker shock.
Micro weddings, on the other hand, are dramatically less expensive. By minimizing your guest list, you save money on nearly every part of the process. You and your spouse can put your money toward starting your lives together instead.
3. Would you consider non-traditional venues?
If you are searching for a Saturday evening date at a traditional wedding venue, your options will be somewhat limited. This is particularly true as 2020 brides shift their original wedding dates to the fall or into 2021. If you only need space for a few close friends or family members, on the other hand, the world is your oyster.
You’ll have your pick of romantic venues, unique locales, and beautiful backdrops.
Micro Weddings Combining Safety and Bliss
The uncertainty that comes from COVID-19 may throw us all for a loop. Just know that as you look towards the near future, there will be options to have a wedding day you’ll love and cherish for the rest of your life.
