Updated: Sep 17
By: Jill Cicero
OUR SOCIETY HAS BEEN FINDING NEW WAYS TO ADAPT OUR SOCIAL GATHERINGS, CELEBRATIONS & WEDDING CULTURE TO THE NEW NORMAL.
WEDDINGS ARE HAPPENING IN NEW WAYS:
Many planners have put together great Micro Wedding & Mini-Mony package deals which are inclusive of decor, photography/cinematography, music, catering and more. Weather you host your wedding in a yard, a tent, a barn or venue we can make Modern Matrimony happen because love is never cancelled and it is worthy of celebration now !
MICRO WEDDING STYLE
Micro-Weddings are the next best thing to a traditional wedding while pandemic restrictions are still in effect. A micro wedding can be a scaled down version of the wedding you planned for and the closest to the wedding you dreamed of allowing up to 50 guests. You can create the feel of a traditional wedding with a shorter guest list and all the details. Many couples who throw micro weddings will re-calibrate their budget, working in upgraded services and add ons such as, a top-shelf open bar or five course dinner at a top rated establishment. With a smaller than usual guest list , money spent on extras such as a designer wedding dress or high quality floral design, becomes much more doable for couples. No matter the venue you can choose a Micro Wedding package that offers all of the trimmings complete with photography and cinematography so you don't miss a memory from a safe distance of course.
THE MINI - MONY TREND
Mini-Monies are a more intimate style wedding with only the 10 closest to the couple to be in attendance. Couples may opt for a mini-mony in lieu of an elopement in times of travel bans, and they can still have some people in attendance as a plus. This version of Modern Matrimony is for sure the most intimate/private option. Everything about the wedding is miniature from the bouquets to the cake ! It's a fun, no fuss way to tie the knot in a modern minimalist style ! A SEQUEL WEDDING
As a an option after your minimony or micro wedding, continue prepping for your sequel wedding, or the original wedding that you had planned prior to the pandemic. The term traditionally described a wedding for for couples deciding to have two distinct weddings for cultural, religious and other reasons. However, the definition of the sequel wedding has transformed with the onset of the pandemic and now includes couples to reconsider the order of events to suit their new needs.Your minimony can help you honor your first proposed date that you may have had to previously cancel due to the current circumstances or health decisions. Further down the line you can hold a sequel wedding, which will be a version closer to the original you had planned. Yes, you can have your cake and eat it twice !
