A micro wedding is a day that’s intentionally kept small. It allows you to celebrate with the people you love most. That, in turn, makes sure that the focus is on the two of you and your guests! But, opting for a micro wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have an adventure! These unique micro wedding ideas will give you some tips for incorporating amazing adventures and unforgettable experiences into your small wedding day.
I mean, let’s just face it! A cookie-cutter wedding day may just not be right for you!
Instead, you’re craving a little more adventure on the day you get married. But, you also don’t see yourself hiking to the top of a mountain or having a totally private ceremony.
Luckily, adventure doesn’t have to mean a big adrenaline rush or a crazy experience!
Remember this: the day you get married can be absolutely anything you want it to be!
Don’t be afraid to get creative, incorporate the things you love, and come up with unique ways to celebrate. Here are some adventurous micro wedding ideas to get you inspired!
Choosing where you’ll tie the knot is one of the first decisions you’ll make once you start planning your wedding day! With a smaller guest list, you have so many more options for places where you can get married.
Planning a destination micro wedding is an amazing way to add some adventure!
For you, this might mean tying the knot in a national park, getting married in a state you’ve never been to, or even jetting off for a destination micro wedding abroad…
Italy, Iceland, Greece… the options are endless!
Along with considering a destination micro wedding, another unique micro wedding idea might include choosing a one-of-a-kind venue!
Instead, of looking at farms, ballrooms, and banquet halls, you can get creative with where you tie the knot.
One micro wedding idea when it comes to choosing a unique venue is to get married in a cabin or Airbnb.
This gives you a private place to tie the knot and everything you need all in one place! Here, you have somewhere to get ready, a ceremony spot, a place to celebrate with your friends and family, and a place to sleep once the party’s over!
An amazing way to add some adventure to your micro wedding is to tie the knot in a national or state park.
These places offer some jaw-dropping scenery, and will give you an incredible backdrop for your ceremony!
Be sure to check if you need a permit! Many places require one, even for small ceremonies!
Many parks will also have restrictions on the number of guests you can have! However, even if you want more of your loved ones by your side, many parks have dedicated spots like amphitheaters and campgrounds that can accommodate more people!
For a lot of couples, there’s a sweet spot between celebrating with loved ones and having some time to themselves! A great way to get the best of both worlds is to either have a two-day micro wedding or divide one day into two parts.
Spend one half of your wedding celebrating with your loved ones, and the other half just the two of you.
This gives you some time for a solo adventure, whether that’s a hike, or just relaxing with your partner!
Your adventure may not even mean that you have to go very far.
A backyard ceremony can be a really special way to tie the knot, giving you a micro-wedding venue that’s meaningful, sentimental, and unique to you!
This might be your own backyard, a relative’s yard, or the backyard of a childhood home.
Your micro wedding venue might even be on the move!
Taking a boat out on the water is one of the most unique micro-wedding ideas. You can have your ceremony out at sea (or on a lake), and party afterward with no one but your friends and family around.
When you’re brainstorming micro-wedding ideas, think about the places that matter to you!
If you love the water and want to spend your wedding day with sand between your toes, tying the knot on the beach is a great way to make your micro wedding special and adventurous.
Adventure means something different for every couple!
You might already have a place that the two of you love that can make your wedding day unique for you! When I got married, we had a small wedding in our favorite place, and it was absolutely perfect. For you, this could be a local park or garden, a favorite beach, a backyard, or any place you can imagine!
Having a small wedding means that you get to be creative with what you do on the big day!
There are plenty of adventurous ways to celebrate with family and friends.
