Weddings are joyful celebrations of love, unity, and happiness. In the post-pandemic era, there has been a surge in the popularity of micro destination weddings. Even celebrities like Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have chosen intimate weddings without the usual grandeur associated with celebrity weddings.
The pandemic has given rise to weddings that prioritize personalization, selective guest lists, and unique invitations. Even after the pandemic, couples are increasingly opting for micro weddings.
Gone are the days of extravagant Indian weddings. Many couples now prefer intimate celebrations in stunning beach or valley settings, creating more memorable experiences with only close family and friends by their side.
Planning the Guest List: Creating Meaningful Connections
The key factor in an intimate wedding is the presence of close and cherished guests. Reshma Ramaiah, Director and Event Planner for North & South America at Resh&Co, explains that a thoughtfully curated guest list consisting of immediate family and close friends ensures a successful micro wedding. When people who genuinely know each other come together to celebrate the union of the bride and groom, the blessings are heartfelt and sincere. Moreover, a smaller guest list makes wedding planning, especially for destination weddings, much more convenient.”
Choosing the Perfect Venue: A Love-Filled Setting
The selection of the venue plays a crucial role in micro-destination weddings. The chosen location sets the tone for the entire celebration, showcasing the couple’s unique love story against a breathtaking backdrop. Ramaiah further emphasizes the importance of the venue in any wedding. After extensive discussions with the couple, Resh&Co decides on a venue that holds significance or meaning. It could be the bride’s ancestral place, the spot where the couple first met, or even a dream destination they’ve always desired. The arrangements made by Resh&Co ensure elegance and coziness. Whether it’s a secluded countryside estate or a cozy home, the venue becomes an integral part of the wedding narrative, enhancing the overall experience. Resh&Co strives to create an unforgettable experience for everyone in attendance.
Customized Catering and Decor: Personalizing Every Detail
With a smaller guest count, couples have the opportunity to personalize every aspect of their special day. From customized welcome boxes to meaningful return gifts, micro weddings prioritize individuality and elegance. Sushma Venkatesh, Director and Event Planner for Asia at Resh&Co, highlights the importance of reflecting the couple’s style through these elements. Venkatesh explains, “We work closely with local vendors to curate menus that showcase regional flavors and ingredients.” Attention to detail is paramount, and even the tiniest aspects are tailored to the couple’s preferences. The decor is meticulously designed to create a captivating ambiance that reflects the couple’s personality and love story.
Invitations: Building Personal Connections in a Digital World
Micro-destination weddings provide an opportunity to embrace the art of personalized invitations. Costanza Giaconi, Director and Event Planner for Europe at Resh&Co, explains the significance of wedding invitations, stating, “The invitation sets the tone for the celebration to come and is the first glimpse guests have of the wedding. At Resh&Co, we collaborate with talented artists, designers, and the couple themselves to create bespoke invitation cards that encapsulate their journey and evoke a sense of anticipation.”
A Schedule of Unforgettable Moments: Carefully Crafted
Micro-destination weddings encompass not only the ceremony itself but also the experiences leading up to and following the big day. Every aspect of the wedding activities is carefully planned to ensure a seamless flow of celebration. From intimate pre-wedding gatherings and welcome dinners to wine tastings, brunches, and city tours, everything is curated based on the couple’s needs and interests. Costanza at Resh&Co explains the attention to detail in crafting unforgettable moments.
Sustainability: Embracing Environmental Responsibility
Apart from their intimate nature, micro-destination weddings offer a more sustainable alternative to extravagant traditional celebrations. Sushma highlights how these weddings, with their smaller guest lists and reduced waste, contribute to a more conscious approach. In an era where environmental responsibility is crucial, micro-destination weddings showcase how couples can create magical moments while keeping sustainability in mind.
As the trend of micro-destination weddings continues to rise, couples are embracing the allure of intimate celebrations against breathtaking backdrops. With personalized experiences, curated guest lists, and sustainable practices, these weddings redefine the concept of elegance.
