Micro Weddings. What?

Micro Weddings. What?

Yes! Micro weddings are in fact a real thing. What is a micro wedding exactly? I’m simple terms it is the celebration of marriage with only a hand full of people (about 25 or less). So why have or think of having a micro wedding? There are a few reasons.

1. Costs are dramatically reduced. From venues to DJs or a band, from place sitting and catering, the stress not just the cost can be greatly reduced.

2. A lot less to worry about. Whether it may be worrying about friends and family flying in or hotel accommodations and for how long. To sizes of venues, and needing to redo the budget, because let’s face it things we really want are always more and then some more right. How about what family member does not want to be seated with whom and so on and so forth. Real life problems people.

3. Actually enjoying every minute with your partner and with your guests. If you ask any large wedding bride, she will say that the day went by so fast and she didn’t get to do this or talk to those people or to even try that desert she was wanting to. A micro wedding does the opposite. You have time to breath and take it all in. To enjoy the little moments that otherwise would have slipped by.

4. Gives the opportunity to think alternatively or outside the box. In all reality not many people have the average cash on hand of about 33k to spend on one day. If one does great. If a large wedding is Exactly what you want, terrific. However, Pointing out alternatives and executing them can be just as exciting and satisfying.

If you like the vintage look with a micro wedding you may be able borrow some antique chairs from family and friends. When you only have about 2 tables to worry about the possibilities are really only hindered by the imagination.
Or you may want to hire an assistant to take care of it all for you. They will give you different micro wedding packages you may be interested in and they do the rest. Just show up, be loved and love and have a blast!

Types of wedding rentals

Types of wedding rentals

When planning for a wedding, one 1st needs to decide on a budget. If you are like hundreds of brides every year, DIYing or renting, aka "borrowing", might be the best choice for you. Let's face it, yes we can buy 50 votives and table linens, vases for centerpieces even every single silverware for a low cost.  What many brides fail to remember is that right after the wedding day all those items will need to be stored.  

Honestly, who really wants 50 little votive glasses inside their studio apartment? 

There are a few options you can choose from.  One is asking anyone and everyone if they have any left over items from their wedding. One thing to remember is that by doing this you cannot be too choosy.  Another way to go and my favorite is researching wedding rental companies near the reception location as well as online rentals that ship nationwide. Like with us at The Borrowed Blossom.  You simply choose your Bouquets, centerpieces etc, to rent and we ship it straight to you. No need to learn how to put a bouquet together, spending hours learning on social media sites. Simply receive the flowers days before your wedding and when done simply ship it back! No worries, no hassle. So do some research and see what the best option is for you.

A few more wedding trends of 2019

A few more wedding trends of 2019

1- Hanging floral Centerpieces.
In the past couples often requested for hanging floral centerpieces, and they will continue to do so. If a venue does not have much space these hanging centerpieces will be perfect.

2- Small Plates.
Of course a nice sit down dinner will always be a favorite. However brides and grooms also desire for the opportunity to make the menu their own. Think of it as a glamoured Buffett, guests will be able to try different foods in a smaller scale but with added courses. It’s a win win in my wedding book.

3- Princesses and their Tiaras.
A fairy tale indeed. Who doesn’t want to feel like a real life princess on their wedding day? Tiaras are a very much in, especially since the world has just recently has a beautiful royal wedding.

Who is paying and for how much?

Who is paying and for how much?

It is your wedding day. Don’t skip on the fun stuff. Start by creating a budget that is right for the both of you. Just remember, it’s all about communicating with each other and plenty or organization. 

 

One of the 1st things you should do is discuss who will be paying for what. Some may stick with tradition when it comes to weddings, but more and more nowadays both sides of the family may want or need to collaborate and pick up a cost here and there. This also includes both the bride and the groom. 

 

The question also may be, how to get together and have a calm and productive discussion on the matter?

 

Some couples may want to sit down and have a talk with each individual families. That way it won’t be awkward for either side. You may want to ask each set of parents or side of the family, to cover a certain dollar amount, or a specific part of the wedding, for example the cake or flowers. 

 

Remember that the most important thing is good communication all around. Don’t leave it to chance or any assumption. At the end of the day both of you will have a better understanding of what you can, can’t, should or shouldn’t, when you know exactly where all contributing members stands in the question of who is paying for what.
