So, what is it…? A micro wedding is a wedding with less than 20 guests. Being smaller in size, it is usually cheaper, more relaxed, and shorter in length than a traditional wedding day.
It differs from both an ‘elopement’ and an ‘intimate’. An elopement is usually done in secret, will be attended by just the couple marrying and two witnesses, and is often a quick and simple registry office ceremony – whereas a micro wedding is a full wedding day, just on a smaller scale. While it still could be the couple and two witnesses, it is not done in secret or on a whim but is a fully thought-through and planned wedding day, just for a smaller guest list. The ceremony will often not take place at a registry office either.
Micro weddings are also different from intimate weddings. An intimate or small wedding is generally considered to have between 30 and 60 guests. Micro weddings are much smaller than this, with guest numbers usually in the single digits or teens.
