Small simple weddings (less than 25 guests but better with even less) and often referred to as elopements, but a new term is beginning to emerge in the wedding phraseology universe…. Micro Wedding. It’s a tiny wedding, a fun wedding, a low stress and carefree wedding experience that tosses out the rule book and indulges your heart without the guilt of disappointing anyone, because you aren’t doing any of the negatives; cutting back, compromising, or otherwise loosing out something that the world expects you to do and now you are feeling a bit ashamed of your self!
A micro wedding is actually a real thing all by itself… its a mashup of a regular wedding and an elopement, and it’s not centered on the traditional and the obligatory and required stuff that the traditional wedding pressures you to conform to! The ceremony can be fun and romantic and relaxed and intimate, and you can do and say silly or romantic or personal things that get you twitterpated and set a mood. You can wear casual attire, or even something bohemian, fun or zany or colorful. Your location can be off the beaten track, or even fun! With a very small guest list, it will only be your closest friends and favored family members who are already inside your space and you don’t have to put on a false front. You can let your “inner child” out of the cage, and the people marrying each will be their genuine selves and not a couple of uncomfortable performers!
The words you say to each other on this day at that moment in time only happen once like this in your whole lives! They are the most important words you will ever say, and the most important promises you will ever make. Human lives may result from these words, both created from your love, or even saved. Why let these words and feelings be anything other than the most you can make of them, real, genuine, romantic, fun (because laughter is a big part of love), and totally human.
