The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly disrupted an awful lot of wedding plans this year, and many couples are exploring their options for rescheduling their nuptials either later this year or in 2021.

One trend that had been growing in popularity ahead of the global pandemic was that of micro weddings and now it seems that this is going to get even more of a boost. Stylist revealed recently that Hitched has named micro weddings as one of its top wedding trends for 2021.

A micro wedding is one that’s defined as having 20 or fewer guests, and there can be a number of advantages to taking this approach, as Sarah Allard, editor of Hitched, explained. One being that you can save money in some areas and spend it in others.

“It also means more quality time spent celebrating with your nearest and dearest in an intimate setting. Having less guests will allow you to really splash out on people that matter and create an unforgettable experience for them,” she stated.

Of course, you’ll still arrange for wedding photography in Yorkshire, or wherever you’re getting married, so you can share your precious memories from your special day with wider circles of friends and family after the event.

As wedding stylist Rosie Conroy told the publication, micro weddings also allow you to spend quality time with your new spouse, as you won’t be feeling pressured to work the room and make sure you say hi to everyone who’s attended.

We recently shared comments from Bride Book founder Hamish Shepherd, who pointed out that couples seem to either be considering having a micro wedding or opting for the “go big or go home” wedding post-lockdown.
