More often than not a micro wedding will include many features of a larger more traditional wedding, only this time scaled down having more of an intimate and relaxed vibe.

A more intimate and smaller wedding allows for further venue options to open up. As the wedding will be smaller you can now consider places you didn’t think of prior to planning your wedding. You can now consider venues such as bars and smaller establishments.
Don’t worry! If you’ve got your eye on a venue that caters to large traditional weddings, reach out and get in contact with them as a majority of larger venues usually cater to small events too, so don’t give up on your dream venue when having a micro wedding.
