A micro wedding is perfect for introverts or people hoping to celebrate their wedding day in a more intimate setting with loved ones.
If you are a shy bride or groom and being the center of attention an entire day causes dread and unnecessary stress, tailor your wedding to be your kind of perfect. Your wedding day is about you two how you and your love want to get married.
With micro weddings, budgets can range from very economical to elaborate meals and simply elegant, special touches. It’s much easier to keep within your budget when there are 25 versus 125 guests. Also, when it comes to quality over quantity, with less guests you can really go elaborate on fine cuisine, signature drinks, and special touches that you might have not otherwise been able to afford with a large wedding.
Yes! You can have a bridesmaid and best man or forgo a bridal party all together and just the two of you walk down the aisle. Yes! You can have your first dance, even if there isn’t open dancing.
A micro wedding is defined as anything less than 50 guests and has fewer complications when couples are focusing on just the important parts of their day.
Keeping your wedding simple also allows you to spend more time with the loved ones you’ve chosen to spend your day with.
On a personal note, as the Events Director here, my own daughter had a micro wedding at Raintree last year with 45 guests. It was absolutely perfect and reflected their desire for an intimate wedding and reception. With less guests, we were able to go more elaborate on décor, high-end entrees for guests, their first dance was on a cloud across the dance floor (dry ice), and we topped the evening with a Late Night Snack that WOW’d guests. We chose the Strawberries & Bananas Foster Flambe with flame presentation in the Grand Ballroom. Raintree’s Chef Bob did quite the show as he made homemade sugar & cinnamon cups with vanilla bean ice cream and the Strawberries & Banana Foster Flambe over top.
At Raintree Golf and Event Center, our main goal is to provide a bride & groom as well as their family and friends exceptional service they will cherish for a lifetime. Whether it is simply elegant or elegantly simple, we accommodate small intimate weddings and up to 350 family and friends.
