Congrats on the engagement and upcoming nuptials! I love how many people are choosing to ditch the huge mega-weddings in favor of a smaller, more intimate event. We are doing a micro destination wedding. I just love the idea of having only our nearest and dearest there during such an important moment.
We’re not having a home wedding but we are having a micro wedding as well! Our venue is going to feel quite large for only 50 people lol. But I really liked it so we went with it anyway🤷🏻♀️ I love the home wedding idea. That sounds so intimate and sweet
Congrats on your engagement! That sounds so awesome and how special will be it be to be cuddled up in your living room later and think we got married right in this spot! Very sweet, happy planning! If I were you I d go big on florals and candles! Make it extra cozy and romantic.
I thought it would be nice to get a spot through a vacation rental company. These often have a limit of 40 people though for the ceremony. I saw these when checking if there were possible lakeside greens where a ceremony could be done.
That sounds great for a micro wedding! I love the idea of having it at home. For your own sanity I would suggest catering or ordering in. Have a great celebration!
That’s awesome and congrats to you both!! Try looking up micro Wedding, backyard wedding, home wedding, etc. on YouTube. I’ve seen several videos about what people did for to theirs, especially during Covid
Sounds lovely!! Congratulations!! I'm a "small wedding" kind of gal - of the nicest weddings I ever attended, most were small - under 50 people, church ceremonies and intimate gathering of family and friends. Most were at nice restaurants, a couple were outdoor back yard receptions. My wedding 38 years ago (we're planning a "convalidation" June 2023 near our anniversary - the Catholic wedding ceremony we didn't get to have back then) was quite simple: a late morning church ceremony followed by a champagne, hors d'oeuvres and wedding cake reception in the adjacent church hall. I wore a gown, hat with veil; hubby wore a "morning coat" ensemble; our MOH and BM wore less formal attire. There were about 60 guests, 40 of which were my Sweet Adeline chorus which sang Irving Berlin's "All of My Life" after the vows. (They also entertained at the reception.) We decorated ourselves with pink and ivory tablecloths, candles and silk flowers, and good quality paper ware in pink. Later that evening, the immediate family had an elegant dinner at a nearby restaurant in a 200 year old Dutch farmhouse. My brother's wedding was similar. My advice: keep it simple, make it elegant. Decorate with pastels, especially if the rooms are not large. Small vases of flowers. Candles. Soft music. Will there be food afterward? Use cloth tablecloths and if using paper or plastic tableware, use good quality ones. Easy finger foods and champagne and/or non-alcoholic "bubbly" - sparkling cider. And of course, a wedding cake. Is there a fireplace? Have the ceremony in front of that.
