Micro Wedding & Covid Friendly Wedding Inspiration

You may have seen my last post on what I predicted weddings may look like moving forward in this pandemic (or maybe you didn’t!) Either way, I felt like my ideas would be better executed by showing you exactly what I had in mind – so I teamed up with an incredible vendor team to bring my ideas to life. So, without further adieu, I present to you… the new wedding trend of 2020 (possibly 2021)… Micro Weddings!

Weddings After Covid

We are hopefully at the end of a global pandemic. Or close to the end. States are slowly lifting restrictions. Beaches and hiking trails are opening. The world is starting to baby steps work it’s way back to “normal.” But will we ever be normal again when it comes to special events and weddings? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and below are a list of things that I predict we’ll see in weddings in the next year or so. I may be way off base, but if you’re in the middle of wedding planning, you might want to adopt some of these ideas for your “post covid wedding.” I hope this leaves you feeling hopeful and hopeless and inspires new and creative ideas as you try and move forward with your new wedding plans.

Smaller guest counts: I think this one is a given. Especially since it’s under the governor’s order at this point. But even if it wasn’t, I believe that couples really do have their friends and families best interest at heart and they don’t want others to be fearful at their wedding. No one wants that! So, it’s natural that the 400 person wedding may not be making a comeback this year (or next).

Making Your Wedding Day Personal

Let me start by saying… “personal” doesn’t ALWAYS equal creative. I think a lot of people think that if they aren’t creative, they can’t have personal touches. Simply not true! Alternatively, making things personal doesn’t necessarily translate to DIY projects. 100% no.

Step 1: Decide how much time and energy you want to put into creating personal touches into your big day. This is key. Set the boundary and stick to it. That way, months from now, when you’re knee deep in wedding planning and scrolling through Instagram… you won’t be swayed to take up every project you see portrayed. I go into more detail on this on my podcast with Meg Christine Photography called Wedding Therapy Podcast. Check that out as a resource as well!

Step 2: Pick Your Projects. Below, I’m going to share my favorite ways to make your wedding day personalized. Super tangible. Links and all. You’re welcome.

Destination Wedding Planning Tips From the Pros

JalepeĊ„o margaritas, live music, dancing under the stars, sand between your toes… all idyllic reasons to ditch the traditional and head to a tropical location for your nuptials. But getting there, not seeing the space beforehand, travel details on TOP of wedding day details… sometimes it sounds too good to be true and then you’re overwhelmed and you scrap the idea entirely. But destination weddings don’t HAVE to be more work than a more traditional “local” event. I recently reached out to our little social media friends to see what everyone’s biggest questions around destination weddings were and decided to put alllll my tips/tricks in one place for ya!
