Mirco Wedding ideas
While some couples dream of inviting crowds of people to their wedding, others prefer a scaled back and more intimate celebration. intimate weddings can be wonderfully romantic and are a great way to keep costs down. With fewer guests you can also unleash your quirky side and think about how to make your day unique and memorable. With this in mind, here are some micro wedding ideas to make your day as special as possible.
Go Off Grid
Fun ideas for a intimate wedding include going off grid. With a micro wedding party, you can enjoy a host of unusual destinations from cliff tops and beach fronts to quaint little villages, farms or courtyards. If you’ve a favourite beauty spot you like to explore as a couple, why not think about how to turn it into a magical wedding location? Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Imagine a rustic country barn covered in flowers and fairy lights or a little lakeside pub that would be willing to make the day all about you.
Host a Quaint Little Wedding Brunch
An elaborate wedding brunch for 200 people isn’t the only way to celebrate your big day. Offering three courses to a huge number of guests can be extremely expensive. So whether you’re on a budget or just fancy doing something different, how about hosting a quaint little wedding brunch either in your garden under a beautifully decorated marquee or at a wedding-friendly venue? Having an intimate wedding at dawn followed by a lazy brunch with breakfast cocktails could be the perfect way to start married life.
Have a Garden Party
A garden party is ideal for a small wedding. You could set up a host of lawn games such as bowling, skipping or ring toss for the kids. Decorating picnic benches and placing a hamper on each one packed with homemade lemonade and a host of delicious treats could also work. Another option is to have a BBQ or to hire caterers to provide your guests with a delicious buffet or sit down meal. The garden can be decorated with fairy lights or you could turn pictures of you as a couple into personalised bunting.
Embrace Your Creative Side
With fewer guests, you can embrace your creative side by making homemade wedding favours or take-home gifts for everyone. You could make little sweet jars with a personalised poem attached for each table setting or make your own flower centrepiece. If you don’t feel like getting too hands on, there’s also the option of having jewellery engraved for the bridesmaids or creating personalised stickers to place on each and every wine bottle. These small but brilliant touches will make your wedding a memorable occasion.
Another nice touch is to buy a wedding book and dedicate an entire page to each guest. You could even write the names of every guest at the top before the ceremony and encourage them to write something meaningful. Typical wedding books just feature a line or two from many different guests, but as your wedding is small it can be more sentimental.
