There was some DIY that went into this micro wedding:
1) Bar and food signs
2) Bottles of hand sanitizers and water bottles both with personalized labels
3) Door signs for the bathroom and “please do not enter” for guest rooms
4) A polaroid “snap and pin” guest book area
5) Reserved seating signs so family members always had a seat
We also had to set up as well as break down the venue before and after the wedding which I had asked my friends to help with. The one advice I do have would be to hire a planner and/or day of coordinator. This micro-wedding also became a bit of a ‘raw space’ wedding where i had to bring in and do many things on my own and I couldn’t have done it without my girlfriend's help. She also happens to be a wedding planner so this was second nature to her and I am very grateful for her guidance and help with everything!
All in all, the micro-wedding ended up being exactly what Emile and I wanted in the first place- something intimate, fun, and with our closest friends and family. Even though we felt so defeated at a certain point, we knew in our hearts that everything would work itself out the way it was supposed to, because at the end of the day, LOVE.ALWAYS.WINS.
