What’s the difference between an elopement and a micro wedding?

What does a micro wedding look like?

A micro wedding is any ceremony and/or reception with less than 50 total guests.

Some married couples even choose to do a micro wedding for their anniversary or vow renewal.

How much should you spend on a micro wedding?

Do you dance at a micro wedding?

Who do you invite to a micro wedding?

A micro-wedding is an in-person wedding with up to 50 guests who are almost entirely composed of your nearest and dearest. For this wedding type, you probably won’t invite your mother-in-law’s second cousin or your colleagues from work.

What is a small wedding called?

A mini wedding – commonly referred to as an intimate or small wedding – is a wedding with less than 50 people that still has all the elements of a traditional wedding, just on a smaller scale. It typically involves the ceremony, a meal, and entertainment over the course of several hours.
