Are Microweddings in Colorado Still a Thing?

Updated: Aug 30

Short answer? YES! Long answer? It depends on who you are, but "micro weddings" are always a thing for the right couple! If you aren't sure if your wedding would be considered a microwedding, head over to my previous blog post, "Spot the Differences: Elopements, Micro Weddings, and Traditional Weddings" to get a little clarity. At the end of the day, a wedding is a wedding, regardless of the size or the scale of the celebration. Your union is uniquely your own, regardless of the number of people in attendance/there to witness your vows to one another.



What we're really talking about when we talk about Microwedding is, in actuality, more about the reception than anything else. Because a microwedding is a full wedding, just smaller than the "national average" and often during the week, there is a misconception that it's less work or not as big of a deal. But there are often just as many vendors, if not more, working on your microwedding.


If we want to get down to the nitty-gritty of it the ceremony is the ceremony - most of those costs are fixed.


Where you see the biggest impact of choosing a microwedding over a "regular" wedding is the reception!


Having a smaller wedding saves you on:
  • Table Flowers/Decor

  • Food (and the associated gratuity)

  • Bar Service

  • Invitations/Postage

  • Rental equipment (things like plates, linens, flatware, seating, etc)

  • Favors

Your fixed wedding costs (the things that don't change with guest count):
  • Wedding Planner

  • Site Fees / Venue Rentals

  • Officiant

  • Accommodations

  • DJ/ Entertainment

  • Photographer

  • Personal Attire

  • Personal Flowers

  • Personal Hair + Makeup

  • Wedding Rings

  • Videography

Ultimately, I don't want any couple to worry about if something is still "in" or "a thing" - your wedding day is about you and what feels good to you, regardless of trends. Celebrating your love, with your friends and family, or without, is a personal choice. So, yes, if you want a microwedding, it's still a thing!
