What is a micro wedding?

A micro wedding is a wedding ceremony that includes a very small number of guests, unusually less than 20 close friends and family members. Micro weddings are similar to traditional weddings, except everything from the guest list to the reception is done on a smaller scale. Micro weddings are great for couples seeking a more private ceremony or for couples operating on a budget.

What is Elopement?

Elopement is a wedding ceremony that includes only the couple getting married and a wedding official. Usually, there are no guests at elopements. Eloping is a popular choice for couples who want a private ceremony or those who simply want to splurge on a wedding reception instead of spending money on a ceremony.

Selecting an NYC micro wedding venue
