Thanks to the micro wedding trend, getting married in Gibraltar may never be the same again. A minority of couples are ditching the traditional wedding format to embrace something considerably smaller, but no less delightful.
In this post, we take a look at some of the reasons why you might want to embrace the micro wedding trend. Check them out below:
Quality is more important than quantity
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times – quality is more important than quantity. Unfortunately, that seems to be something that people forget at weddings with hundreds of attendees. It’s hard to keep standards high when volume is the name of the game.
Micro weddings give you an opportunity to achieve excellence in every area, particularly with food. Chefs can experiment with creative, low-volume recipes instead of being forced to choose options more amenable to mass production. Similarly, flower arrangers can have a field day at smaller venues, as can entertainers.
You can focus on your partner
Big, beautiful Gibraltar weddings are great. But some couples want to spend the day focusing on each other instead of talking to people neither of them has seen for years.
That’s precisely what an intimate gathering of 20 to 50 people offers. You’re not rushing around, meeting and greeting everyone. Instead, you are focusing on the experience of the day with your partner.
You can spend more time with guests
Likewise, micro weddings give you more quality time with your guests. Rather than running around like a headless chicken, trying to thank hundreds of people for coming, you can have a real heart-to-heart with a smaller crowd.
It’s easier to make your Gibraltar destination wedding dream a reality
Putting several hundred people on an Airbus and flying them to Gibraltar is a logistical nightmare, not to mention expensive. But when you have a micro wedding, it suddenly becomes so much more affordable. You’re not having to book entire planes or rent out half the hotels on the island. Instead, the affair becomes much smaller and more manageable.
So, will you consider a micro wedding in Gibraltar? Or will you stick to the tried-and-tested format?
