Micro-weddings have quickly become a go-to solution during COVID-19 for couples who can’t wait to get married, but want to have small, intimate, and most importantly, pandemic-friendly ceremonies. While micro-weddings simplify the process of planning and preparation, it’s never a bad idea to have some expert help along the way to ensure that no detail is forgotten. At Eventfully Yours Company, we’ve helped plenty of couples in the Dallas/Fort-Worth area plan and host memorable micro-wedding ceremonies at our venue. In honor of the season of love, we’re sharing our top five secrets for planning and hosting a successful micro-wedding.
Secure a Good Location for your Micro-Wedding
Once you confirm the date, the first thing that you should do is secure a great location to host your micro-wedding. An extraordinary event begins with a beautiful space, so it’s important to pick a location that will serve as a great canvas for bringing your event to life while staying within your budget. Although micro-weddings are small and intimate, you may want to consider finding a larger venue that allows for social distancing among your guests.
If you’re in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, look no further for the perfect location! Our 5,000 square foot venue is the perfect size for hosting glamorous yet intimate events. We also have a team of incredible event experts who are always on-call to ensure that every single detail of your micro-wedding is planned out to perfection.
Add a Personal Touch to Your Decor
Contrary to popular belief, an intimate micro-wedding can still be a glamorous affair. In fact, one of the best benefits of having a micro-wedding is that you can add those personal touches and they’ll get the true attention they deserve in your intimate event setting.
If you don’t have a clear vision for your event decor or have no clue how to bring your dream vision to life, we’re happy to help! We offer a wide variety of linen rentals, plus we have an extensive list of some of the best vendors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who can provide every detail to make your day perfect -- from florals to table settings. If we don’t have the specifics of what you want, our partners will.
Splurge on Your Food Menu for your Micro-Wedding
Another perk about hosting a micro-wedding is that you'll have more menu options. Since you'll have a much smaller guest list than the average wedding, you can splurge on gourmet options without exceeding your budget.
Not sure what kind of cuisine you'd like to have at your micro-wedding? Ask your caterer to provide you with recommendations. You may discover that they're an expert at preparing a specialty cuisine that you wouldn't normally consider, which can be an exciting addition to your wedding for both you and your guests!
Eventfully Yours Company has an on-site commercial kitchen available for rent that is a caterer’s dream! Not only will your caterer have all the amenities they'll need to create amazing dishes for you and your guests to enjoy, but they'll have more than enough space to work their magic without interrupting your guests' experience.
Choose the Best Type of Music for your Micro-Wedding
Will you have a DJ or live band at your micro-wedding? Before you choose, consider that the music is an essential key to setting the perfect ambience for your festivities. Depending on your personal preferences, there are pros and cons to each choice.
DJ Pros include:
- Having access to a variety of music genres.
- Offering a more affordable option than a live band.
- Taking up less space and time for setup.
Live Band Pros include:
- Creating high entertainment value, even for guests who prefer not to dance.
- Creating the opportunity to compliment the theme of your micro-wedding.
- Possessing the ability to read your guests and alter their performance to fit the energy of the room.
Order the Perfect Cake
The last essential step is also the sweetest: order the perfect cake. If you've always dreamed of having a beautiful, over-the-top cake with several tiers and all of the bells and whistles, you can still achieve that. You may just need to downsize so that you're not left with tons of uneaten cake at the end of your celebration. That's why it's so important to find a local baker who is trustworthy, adaptable, and can support you in creating a smaller version of your grand vision for your wedding. If you aren't sure where to begin your search for a baker in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we can make a great recommendation for you!
