Great for introverts
Do you hate being in the spotlight? Or do you get overwhelmed around lots of people easily? If so, a micro wedding might be a great option for your wedding event.
A few years ago we had a groom that hated the thought of being the center of attention for such an important life moment. So he and his bride booked a wedding for just the two of them. They got married in private in a small garden, ate some cake and then had fun taking adorable wedding photos with the highland cows, and goats on the farm, in the turn of century farm house. They even got to enjoy a lovely stay doing outdoor adventuring in the area. When they returned home they planned a casual get-together for all their friends and family. That was a great way to include those they loved in the celebration without all the added pressure. It was perfect for them and their need for an intimate and low stress event.
Even if you are an outgoing person and don’t mind being the center of attention, weddings can bring a lot of stress and pressure from outside sources. The more people are involved the more complicated things can get. And especially with certain people having set ideas about what a wedding should be.
Ideally, your day should be what you want it to be and not what others are expecting. But if you are prone to feeling pressure from others’ expectations (like the majority of us), then that can cause a lot of tension.
The good news is that micro weddings are more outside of the box. They are great way to throw whatever traditions you want out the window, keeping what elements you want to keep and creatively reinventing the rest. There is a greater chance that the people close enough to you to be invited will go with the flow you’ve created. The rest won’t be there to judge.Want to do something a little bit different? Then pick a our mountain destination and go! Micro weddings are a great way to create an awesome and affordable wedding experience with your closest friends and family. You can choose a favorite vacation place or somewhere you haven’t been before. Make it into a long weekend occasion with outdoor adventures and cultural outings in Lake Lure, North Carolina.
