Tampa Florida Micro Wedding | What it is and how to plan?
Considering having a Tampa Florida Micro Wedding?
These smaller events are not only a cost-saving alternative to a traditional wedding. They are an intimate affair that can be as unique as you are. With a smaller guest list, there are more options for locations and catering. With the current happenings in the world, many couples are having issues with friends and family traveling. Micro Weddings can be a solution.
What is a Micro Wedding?
Imagine a normal wedding celebration, just on a way smaller scale. Micro weddings typically still have a ceremony and reception with dinner, décor, cake, and entertainment. The event hosts only 40 people or less though, with most micro weddings in the range of 15 to 25 guests.
Minimalist or Magnificent?
Tiny houses and capsule wardrobes are outcomes of those looking to achieve more minimalistic lifestyles. And micro weddings can also be suited for the minimalist-minded. A smaller guest list means less seating, centerpieces, linens, food, and the list goes on. According to The Knot’s 2019 Real Weddings Study, the average wedding last year cost over $33,000. The average micro wedding can be achieved under $10,000.
However, this doesn’t mean a micro wedding can’t be lavish. The guest list for a Tampa Florida Micro Wedding is small. However, this doesn’t mean the couple is throwing a frugal, thrifty wedding. Micro weddings allow a couple to bring their true wedding day vision to life with more budget! If you’re looking to splurge on a unique venue, a customized catered meal, or lavish décor, you can still save money in the end when you are working with a smaller guest list.
First Steps in Micro Wedding Planning
The first step in micro wedding planning is no different from any other wedding. Think about your ideal timeframe and solidify a venue first. The biggest difference here is that micro weddings allow for many more event location options, inside or outside. From the stage of theatre to a shady spot in your best friend’s backyard, micro weddings don’t have to be confined to a standard wedding venue. Understanding the estimated number of guests and your vision for the day (urban, bohemian, formal, garden, ethereal, modern tropical, rustic, etc.) will help guide you on what type of location to be looking for.
Tampa Florida Micro Wedding Services
When throwing a micro wedding, we still suggest hiring a photographer to capture your unique day. Quality photos of you and your spouse are a must! Time and effort were put into every detail of the day. Plus your favorite people in the entire world will all be together! You’ll want all this captured to look back on for years to come.
Whether you want a dance-off to emerge or an evening of sing-a-long tunes around the fire pit, music helps bring your space to life! Set the atmosphere with music from when guests arrive at the final slow dance of the evening. Hire a DJ to make announcements, provide microphones for any speeches, and to create the soundtrack to the day of your dreams.
Choosing videography for a micro wedding is a great option to be able to share the day with all those who wish they could have made the tiny invite list.
