5 Reasons to have a Micro Wedding

5 Reasons to have a Micro Wedding

Wedding trends inevitably change year on year and when it comes to trends for 2021/2022, micro weddings have pushed their way up the list to become a hotly contested topic. 

Restrictions and lockdown guidelines over the last 12 months are the reason they’ve moved to centre stage and have proved to have many advantages, so much so they look set to continue long after lockdown has ended and restrictions have been lifted. The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have pulled together 5 reasons to have a micro wedding, which might give you the inspiration you are looking for!

Time to Talk

With the average UK wedding guest list standing at 82 guests, a micro wedding is considerably smaller, with up to 20 people invited to your special day. When you have a large wedding, it can be really difficult to find time to talk to each and every guest – there’ll be some you see whizz past you on the dance floor and others you’ll see as you walk down the aisle but often, the day passes so quickly, lengthy and meaningful interactions with everyone just aren’t possible. With less people on the guest list, there’s a real opportunity to spend quality time speaking to each and every one of your loved ones.

Less Stress

A lot of planning goes into a wedding, big or small, but with a micro wedding, the stress is considerably lightened. You can choose whichever elements of a larger wedding you want to incorporate, from a cake to a first dance and speeches, or you can leave them out entirely! The choice is yours. 

More locations to say I do

With a large wedding party, it can restrict the number of locations you can hold your ceremony due to available space. A micro wedding opens up your options, giving you the choice to say your vows in the most memorable of places. At Delamere Manor, both our Pergola and Garden Folly are absolutely beautiful locations, which can be used as a photo location for larger weddings but could be used as a location to say your vows for a micro wedding. 


When deciding to have a micro wedding, it gives you two options when it comes to budget – it can see your costs go down considerably, which can be a real benefit to lots of couples, or it gives you a chance to really go to town on the things you really care about – from bridal outfits to flowers, menus and personalising your wedding venue. 

Less Lead Time

If you don’t want a long lead time between the date you get engaged and the date you tie the knot, planning a micro wedding requires a lot less preparation than a larger event – so if you’re keen to get married this year, a micro wedding is definitely worth considering!Delamere Manor is Cheshire’s most sought after wedding venue.
