Micro destination weddings are now a trend and we are ( or shall we say ) have always been here for it!
when we started 7 years ago no one else in Paris was doing elopements or small weddings so yippee!! We are beyond excited that the joy of an intimate wedding is reaching more couples worldwide!
WHAT ARE MICRO WEDDINGS?
Intimate wedding ceremonies that are under 50 people. This could be an elopement of 2 people, a smaller gathering of 10 people with only parents and siblings, or a medium-sized wedding to include all your favorite people including friends.
Over the years our vow renewal groups typically run about 20 to 40 guests.
Traditional weddings are usally somewhere over 100 guets – thats quite a handful if you’re shy or if you simlpy cant imagine a large wedding.
This takes us into why couples are opting for Micro weddings now more than ever?
WHY ARE MICRO WEDDINGS TRENDING?
Elopements and small wedding have always been more intimate and thus offer more quality time with the couple and their guests.
remember that you are basically paying for every single person that you invite
FLEXIBILTY and FREEDOM
this is already an unconventional wedding, so why stop there. There is literally no standard way to go about a micro wedding; you can plan it on any day of the week and still have amazing locations that you perhaps never even considered before. We can go as outlandish or as minimalist as you choose.
as we mentioned before, when you opt for a smaller wedding you are so much more in tune with what will make you happy, and not if you have to invite your moms’ coworker.
If you have a good wedding planner, all you have to do is simply show up on your wedding day to a fun stress-free time.
WHO TO INVITE?
So here’s my rule of thumb on this touchy topic, that I’ve had to deal with for all these years. You may not agree but in the long run, it’s what makes my clients the happiest: if you feel like you have to invite that person only so they don’t feel slighted or angry with you, then that’s who not to invite. For a super small wedding, you want to invite people that will only sprinkle joy in your day and your union from here on out. I have had couples who do a small ceremony here and then do a bigger reception back home and for the people who could not make it. And they didn’t love them any less. Love is never lost where it always is.
