“what Should We Do About Our Wedding?” Asked Every Covid Couple Ever.
by Now, You’ve Heard The Term Microwedding, And Probably Have A Friend Or Friend Of A Friend Who's Had Or Been To One! Generally, A Wedding Is Considered A Microwedding If There Are 50 Or Fewer Guests. This Style Of Wedding Became Popularized During A Certain Virus When Happily Ever After Couldn’t Wait And Some Couples Chose To Host Their Weddings With A More Modest Guest Count.
even As Social Distancing Mandates Have Lifted, The Microwedding Trend Is Here To Stay. Couples Are Loving This Low-pressure Take On A Usually High-stress Celebration And Having More Budget Flexibility.
there Are A Lot Of Benefits To Keeping Your Wedding An Intimate Affair (such As More Face Time With Each Of Your Guests!), But There Are Also A Few Unique Considerations.
