So you don’t want a huge wedding, but you still want to invite loved ones. Cue the micro wedding! Micro weddings are typically 35 or less guests.
You want to do something fun and memorable, but you’re not quite sure what to do. Don’t worry — I hear you, and I am here to help! I have made some timeline examples to help you plan your micro wedding. I hope this will get those creative juices flowing, and you truly see that you can do whatever the hell you want!
I’m going to go through what a micro wedding can look like with 4, 8, and 12 hours. I think that you will be surprised at how easy it is to fill your day! Shoot, you may decide you want to add on more time!
Let’s start with that big one — a whole 12 hour day. I know what you’re thinking… There’s NO WAY we could come up with enough to do for 12 hours! Well, let me show you one of many timeline examples for a 12 hour elopement day:
12 hours sounds like a lot and you want time to rest a little more during the day. That is okay! 8 hours might be a better fit for you then. Here is an example for an 8 hour micro wedding day.
You had the whole morning to relax and you get to party all evening with your loved ones. But maybe you want to do an earlier wedding day. Here’s an example of a morning wedding and a luncheon!
Now you have the whole rest of your day to relax! Take a nap if you want since you had such an early start. And enjoy the rest of the day! I’d recommend having a nice dinner to celebrate that evening, just the two of you.
4 hours is perfect for just a ceremony and shorter reception. This is a great option if you just want a small and simple celebration with no frills! Here is another one of my timeline examples for a micro wedding.
Whether you are looking to celebrate all day long or something more relaxed but with amazing views, there’s something for everyone. I will help you come up with a custom timeline for your day, based on what you want to do and what your budget allows.
