Call it what you will – an elopement, micro wedding, or intimate wedding – smaller sized gatherings are a big upcoming trend in the wedding industry.
As wedding trends shift away from ornate production-style gatherings, with couples focusing more on their own personal “brand” and guest experience, it seems that guest lists are getting shorter and traditions are going by the wayside, resulting in fun-sized weddings! Many couples that go this route choose to incorporate lots of the aesthetic elements (formalwear, a stunning ceremony location, floral, and other design elements) while choosing to downsize their guest lists in favor of smaller gatherings where they can truly enjoy their loved ones and the intimacy of the day.
Here are some reasons why a styled elopement or micro-wedding might be the right fit for you:
