Saying "I Do" to a Micro-Wedding

By Intertwined Events in Orange County + Los Angeles, CA

If you’re on the fence about whether or not a micro-wedding is the right decision for you and your fiancé, we have put together some pearls of wisdom after helping our own couples plan their 

magical micro-weddings!

1) Think about what’s important to the two of you as a couple – the music, the vows, the ambiance – prioritize those elements and don’t stress on the things that don’t mean as much.

2) Try to incorporate traditional elements so you can have those picture worthy moments – first look or the first look down the aisle, saying your own vows, toasting to one another, cake cutting, your first dance – don’t let those moments slip by without a photo.

3) Personalize everything. If you are only focusing on 10 – 20 people, you have the ability to really make it special. Incorporate personal memories into your ceremony, write thank you notes as their place cards, have a special drink on hand that Aunt Sue always orders, or the chocolate covered strawberries grandma is known for. Think of things that make you two as a couple and try to incorporate them into your day.

5) Invite your crew… via Zoom! You can livestream your wedding, if you so choose, or record it and have it to show people at a later date. Just because they aren’t there in person doesn’t mean they can’t be a special part of it.

6) Don’t stress. It’s all about the two of you and the closest people in your life. They don’t care about your dress being different, the venue being your home instead of a hotel or the band turning into an iPod. They care about you two and being one of the few people lucky enough to witness the day!
