Feb 19, 2021

The past year has turned a lot of things on their heads—from eating out to simply grocery shopping, everything looks slightly different, especially weddings. Rather than waiting for the pandemic to end, a lot of couples have been choosing to get married in smaller, much more intimate ceremonies, creating a new wedding trend: micro-weddings! This new less-is-more approach to wedding planning has caught on, and we think the trend will continue to stick around long after the pandemic is over. Micro-weddings are intimate, beautiful, and often give couples more options for their big day.






Start by finding a venue! The beauty of a smaller ceremony means you’ll have a wider range of options for location. Less people means you could potentially rent your favourite restaurant for the big day, or if it’s warm out, you could get married in your garden or a friend’s. Locations like these can be much more sentimental and are perfect for smaller weddings. Smaller venues also mean your budget can go a bit further—with fewer guests, you can splurge a bit more on a more elaborate menu, a specialty cocktail, or a fun dessert!



Once you’ve found a venue, you can start thinking about your dress. Micro-weddings have started new dress trends, with some brides opting for more understated looks, and some brides even opting for more than one dress! We love this modern, chic trend for micro-weddings.

We love that this stunning design does the dreamy ball gown trend perfectly while keeping things simple, emphasizing the silhouette with shimmering floral applique.

Looking for something simple yet striking? This beautiful Aire Barcelona dress stands out in its details: the lace trimmed sleeves and train take this gorgeously simple design to the next level.



The understated, chic trend creates an opportunity for brides to accessorize their dresses in a unique way to let their personal style shine through. A less-is-more dress makes a beautiful canvas to be creative. Bright lipstick, fun earrings, or a fur jacket and gloves like this Fross bride did can make your look that much more special and personalized. 


The beauty of micro-weddings is that you can really focus in on your details and make your wedding exactly what you want it to be. Smaller venues and fewer guests means less planning and a budget that goes further, so you can pinpoint exactly what you want. This also means you could have multiple celebrations with all the important groups in your life—if you have family and friends near and far, bring the celebration to them and celebrate twice! This also means you can explore every idea you had for your wedding.
