Overwhelmed by having a large wedding, but the thought of eloping without having your dearest people around just doesn’t sit right? A micro wedding could be the perfect choice for you. Though micro weddings have been emerging as a trend since 2018, the COVID-19 global pandemic has fast-tracked their rise in popularity. Having a micro wedding doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the dream you have always had, in fact it could make your wedding even more spectacular than you thought imaginable. When you make your wedding smaller your attention to each little detail can increase.
Wedding photographer Olga, of Olga Polo Weddings, shares her insight on the micro weddings she has captured “Surprisingly my couples bring more attention to details on the wedding day, they save money on venues and can spend more on details.”
Below are some easy ways you can bring your vision board to life and pass the vibe check while saving money:
1) Add old world character and natural charm to your setting by layering and mixing traditional area rugs.
2) Lighting is everything, candles will set the mood and add elegance. Remember, you can never have too many.
