The benefits of micro weddings surrounded by nature
The current trend in magical weddings is the concept of micro weddings surrounded by nature. As our world continues to change and evolve, our customary practices evolve as well and we are entering an era of more eco-conscious principles that benefit all. Furthermore, with the advent of Covid 19, smaller is safer and better suited for these times. Micro weddings focus on the unique needs of the couple and often include custom features like a tree planting ceremony or a hand fasting ceremony from ancient Celtic traditions to an eco-friendly themed wedding under a majestic waterfall.
What makes micro weddings in nature special?
Romantic micro wedding venues frequently are off the beaten path in a quiet, natural setting that transports the couple and their guests to a simpler, more relaxed time to truly savor the sounds of nature, the smell of fragrant flowers and the tranquility of soothing water sounds from a creek, river, pond or waterfall. Water has always played a significant role in sacred ceremonies. Many couples long for a destination wedding that transports them to lush, tropical oasis or a rustic mountain lodge.
Intimate micro weddings are designed to elicit a feeling of union with Mother Nature and allows the couple to naturally relax and unfurl from the day to day stressors of life. Micro weddings also allow the couple to be very discerning about the guests that will be attending as these are small, intimate ceremonies often with less than 30 people so that the couple and their nuptials take center stage.
Intimate ceremonies: Small is beautiful
According to The Knot 2019 Real Weddings Study, the average overall guest count was also down, while the average cost per guest went up. “Couples can certainly save money by going the route of micro weddings, though many decide to actually spend their full budget. Only on less people,” Cove explains. “Some couples will even take their budget and host the hotel rooms for their guests, along with transportation and other items that may not normally be affordable for a larger-size wedding.”
Micro weddings can feature innovative, creative, customized vows facilitated by an experienced ordained minister or wedding officiant that works seamlessly with the couple to co-create a truly custom ceremony that reflects their values, passion, design style and wishes.
Finally, the micro wedding trend is excellent for seasoned couples desiring a re-commitment ceremony that deepens their connection and re-energizes the couplehood with sacred ceremonies and personalized vows that reflect the passage of the time that the relationship has experienced and the joyful excitement of the next phase of the ever evolving relationship.
