Listen Now: Microweddings Bring Massive Savings To Newlyweds
Cutting back is one of the first tricks to save money, but are you ready to say “I do” to a minimalist wedding?
According to a survey by the knot the average cost of a wedding in 2017 was $34,000 dollars. A hefty price tag for couples looking to buy a house or save up a nest egg. Enter the microwedding. Not to be confused with eloping, the microwedding includes a ceremony, photographer and a venue, just on a smaller scale.
For example Zingerman’s Cornman Farms in Michigan has a tiny wedding package that costs two thousand dollars. For that price, couples get an hour and a half at the venue, a photographer, officiant, flowers, small cake and a sparkling wine toast. The business Tiny Chapel Weddings will bring one to you for a small price.
Even hotels are getting in on the money saving trend with packages offering “everything you need and nothing you don’t for the perfect, petite wedding.”
So if you don’t have the big wedding budget, go micro. It’s also a good way to trim the guest list.
