It’s no secret that COVID has put a damper on many plans in  2020. From vacations to concerts, festivals, and big events, the whole world has had to find ways to adapt and make the best of the cards we’ve been dealt. Unfortunately, if you were planning a wedding for 2020, this is something you’ve probably looked forward to your whole life. There’s so much that goes into planning a wedding, and it’s not as simple as just rescheduling your flight or making it a virtual event. A wedding is one of the most monumental milestones in a person’s life, and you should be able to fully enjoy it. However, if there’s one thing that this pandemic taught us is that “bigger isn’t always better,” and “quality over quantity.” Many people have realized during this time that the closest people in your life and cherishing valuable time with your inner circle is very special. If you were originally planning a big wedding but have recently realized that your closest family and friends are all you need around you to make your day incredible, a “micro-wedding” can still be the wedding of your dreams! Below we have some tips on how to make your micro-wedding extraordinary.

Emphasize the Small Details

When you’re planning a big wedding, there are so many factors to coordinate from the DJ or band to booking caterers, photographers, and beyond. It can be easy to lose sight of the small details that add the extra touch of personality to your wedding. With a micro-wedding, there are fewer big elements to plan, so you can really focus on and emphasize the little details! Things like customized invitations, special accents in your decor, or any other personal touches can make all the difference for your wedding. Let yourself indulge in all the small details that’ll make this day incredibly special for you, your partner, and the attendees! 

Handwritten Vows

If you’re not one for public speaking, handwritten vows may have been out of the question in front of a large crowd. However, now that you’ve chosen to narrow down the list to your closest friends and family, personalizing your vows can make it much more sentimental! There won’t be a dry eye in the house when you and your partner intimately share your vows with your closest loved ones as witnesses. 

Choose a Unique Venue 

Lastly, with a small wedding, you’ll have a whole different set of venus to choose from! A small, romantic venue where your guests can feel like a part of the ceremony is ideal. If you’re getting married in the Boston area, our small Chapel in Quincy is a unique, intimate setting that is perfect for micro-weddings!
