Lately, I’ve been talking to many wedding vendors who have already worked at many weddings. We often talk about the topic of an ideal wedding. What would it be like according to them? And almost all of them, or at least the vast majority, said that the main thing they would change is to make their wedding significantly smaller.
It is one thing to have experienced habits and expectations, another thing is if you are a professional and have experienced many weddings, and you see what is happening at them, and you often know right away what could be better.
Especially if you already had your wedding, then you have something to compare with. Many suppliers have said exactly something in the sense that if we have more than 60 guests, it starts to get tiring to take care and spend at least some time with everyone. And at the same time take care of the fun for everyone.
But if we have 15 to 20 guests there, then we can spend that time with everyone, and all the time. At the same time, we only have those closest people there, whom we know intimately, and we can really enjoy the time with them to the fullest.
At the same time, the most expensive item in the budget at any wedding is the guest. According to the number of guests, we choose the venue, food, desserts, alcohol, and other things. If we significantly reduce the number of guests, we will have enough money left to serve better quality food, have more impressive decorations, and come up with a fantastic program that we can enjoy together perfectly.
Of course, not to mention a better photographer or even a video. Wedding photographers could undoubtedly talk about how much harder it is to photograph a small wedding well than the lavish one, which is often easier to photograph.
So yes, I think the definite trend for the future is micro weddings. I know that many brides are afraid of this and artificially postponing weddings for the third or fourth time just so that they can have 100 or 150 guests there.
I just had a debate where, after the professionals talked. Everyone spoke in favor of small weddings, which means if they went to do their wedding again, they wouldn’t have more than 25 guests and suddenly a bride who listened started to thank, that it helped a lot in the decision because she wanted to postpone her wedding and now she sees that if the professionals themselves say they would like a small wedding, there will probably be something to it. After this debate came the decision to write this blog.
So let’s stop taking micro-weddings as a necessary evil and try, on the contrary, to make the most of it, and maybe we will finally find out that it is an amazing new trend that we will all enjoy.
In any case, I don’t want to distract any bride from planning a big wedding to having a micro wedding. In the end, I make a living from it, and big weddings are better for me. So if we advise you that a micro wedding is better, then we go against each other business, and we mean it really honestly and humanly.
I understand that for most of you, this is the first wedding and the first experience. You go after what you have seen so far and take it as the norm. But the wedding should be about you and not about the standards. It is better to take advice from someone who has already had his own wedding and then saw and experienced several hundred other weddings. I’ll leave the rest up to you.
