Introducing…the Micro Wedding

by | Jun 24, 2020 | Vows & Wows | 0 comments

Wowza! What a whirlwind 2020 has been so far eh!? At last, we’ve finally gotten some clarity for future weddings, which is a massive relief for future couples, venues & vendors. Following public health guidance and with social distancing measures firmly in place, gatherings with the below boundaries can soon take place:

As of 29th June: Limited to 50 people indoors and 200 people outdoors until July 20th.

As of 20th July: The numbers expand with an allowance of up to 100 people indoors and 500 people outdoors.

So today, we wanted to create a forest themed mood board for a micro wedding. ‘’What the hell is a micro wedding’’, I hear you say!? A micro wedding is a super intimate celebration which can range anywhere from 4 to 50 guests. Sounds pretty dreamy right!?

Bombenni Micro Wedding
Micro Weddings are a trend that Bombenni feel will become more and more popular over the next couple of years. They also come with benefits which we’re about to jump into:


With fewer guests, your costs will come right down saving you a massive chunk of change. Hallelujaaaah! However, before you start planning, you just have that tricky icky job of cracking down the numbers on that guest list.

A smaller wedding party will ease your stationary, food & beverage requirements to name but a few. This means the money you save could go into wowsa decor or getting your favourite band to play at your wedding, we all know that bands at the best of times come with a hefty price tag or perhaps you could keep the money for future investments like your home, childcare, a pretty epic honeymoon – the choice is yours!


Do you hate being the centre of attention? Uncomfortable with the idea of having all eyes on you? Trust us when we say, you are not alone!

Weddings and large numbers can be daunting to so many people. Opting for a micro wedding will eliminate a lot of these stressors as after all, you will be surrounded by your biggest comfort blanket – the people who you want there, your nearest & dearest who you love most. The beauty with this also is, timewise, nothing will feel rushed. You will totally be at ease and will be able to mingle with your guests freely without having to dash to the next person for a quick hello and catch up.


We always say, weddings should be done your way and you shouldn’t do anything that makes you feel uneasy. For example, if a church wedding is something you don’t want – then you could have an intimate forest ceremony instead. Your ceremony could even take place in the comforts of your very own home, obviously if you had the garden space – unlike my teeny tiny patch of grass!
When it comes to smaller weddings, people’s expectations automatically slightly adjust, they don’t expect all the trimmings that you might see at a 200+ wedding. Guests will instantly expect a much intimate, personable affair. So with this, you can cut back on the likes of a first dance – you know that awkward moment that has been playing on your mind or if your tummy knots up when you think of having to say a speech in front of a crowd – why not just scrap it all? It’s your day, do it your way.
Like I mentioned above, if speeches make you clam up with the heebie jeebies – you could arrange personal special touches for your guests instead. For example, writing a personalised card to each of your guests telling them how much it means to have them there with you celebrating your marriage or gifting them with a little keep sake like a candle, some plant seeds, a personalised drinking glass – the list goes on!
The beauty about Micro weddings is that they’re similar to elopements – laidback, stress free but most importantly you get to have the people whom you wouldn’t want missing out, being there right by your side.
We would love to hear if you are planning a small intimate wedding. If you would like any help with ideas or styling for your perfect micro wedding, please feel free to reach out at any time ♡
