With a calm demeanour and a sparkle in her eye, if you work with Jill, she will ensure that every last detail is handled while you enjoy your magical day and soak in every second with your loved ones (and a few aunts and uncles who you don't see from one end of the year to the next! This is Ireland after all!)
There’s a new restriction for weddings here in Ireland due to the pandemic. The rule states that all wedding must have 25 guests and under to hold. That has a lot of couples worried, but you don’t have to be.
You can still have a beautiful and memorable wedding this way. First off, weddings like these are known as micro weddings. They’ve existed long before this pandemic and can be very fun. If you’re wondering how then check out the paragraphs below. In it, we highlight some of the ways that you can make the most of this new restriction and have the best wedding ever.
Since you’ll be cutting down on your guest list, your creative options have become a lot more. You’ll most likely be inviting the people closest to you. That means you don’t have to follow too many of the laid down wedding rules.
In fact, you can have a casual, fun wedding and get away with it. Your Great Aunt Edith won’t be there to judge you. For your micro wedding, you can choose a fun wedding theme. This will ensure that you and your loved ones have a great time.
As a result of the reduced guest numbers, you’ll have a lot more to spend on your celebration. That means you can put more things towards your wedding catering. Hire a top caterer to prepare delicacies you won’t forget for a long time. You can also serve high-quality drinks and even have an open bar. Everyone will have a great time, and your wedding will be all the better for it.
Your wedding décor will affect your wedding atmosphere. For a small wedding of 25 people, the best kind of atmosphere will be a romantic one. As a result of the reduced numbers, your wedding will tilt towards intimacy, and romantic wedding décor will greatly complement that. Choose a soft colour palette and make use of lots of flowers.
The best kind of lighting for a wedding like this is candlelight. Picture a candlelight dinner with your loved ones seated around you. You’ll have the best experience, and they’ll be talking about what a great time they had at your celebration long after.
Fairy lights, also known as string lights, are a great idea too. They create a warm glow which is fantastic for romantic wedding atmospheres. Your photographer will also thank you because string lights are great for pictures.
Imagine getting a chance to enjoy a warm pizza after a while on the dance floor. It would be a lifesaver! Late-night snacks are an excellent idea for micro weddings that last long into the night. They’ll refresh your guests and improve the mood at your celebration. You can choose from a wide range of warm comfort food to serve, which will make everyone happy.
Wedding favours are a chance to remind your guests of the great time they had at your wedding. Sadly, many couples send guests home with items that they put on shelves and forget immediately. This is sad and kind of defeats the purpose of the favour.
How about gifting your guests something more memorable for your lovely micro wedding? With the extra savings you’ll get from reduced guest numbers, you can invest in gifts of higher quality. You can also go for out of the norm ideas. An example is donating to a charity on behalf of your guests. They won’t forget that in a long while.
If you still want to send your guests home with something nice, you can do edible wedding favours. Studies have shown that edible wedding favours are a hit among many wedding guests. There’s also a lower chance that they’ll be put away and forgotten. Covid Weddings can still be epic!
So, what do you say? Your small wedding can be all that you’ve dreamed of and more. All you have to do is put on your creative cap and be prepared to have a great time. With the few tips above in your basket too, you’ll be sure to have a great time. Best of luck!!!
