As a professional "micro-wedding" planner, I've personally planned over 500 small weddings. This book is a complete compendium of everything that I think a couple needs to know about planning their own microwedding, elopement, or vow renewal. In the back of the book, you'll find my "Planning Toolkit" with worksheets, checklists, and to-do lists, for you to work through as you go!
*This book includes the link to access the digital version of my "Planning Toolkit" so you can edit, customize, and print out these resources!*
I provide general info on each vendor, as well as tips for finding the perfect fit.
Topics include: Finding Your Vendors, Vendor Directories (which to use), Individuals vs. Companies, Special Concern for Small Weddings, Officiant, Photographer, Videographer, Florist, Bakery, Hair and Makeup Stylist, Catering/Private Chef, Live Music/DJ, Bartender, Rentals, and Day-of Coordinator.
You'll need the perfect spot for the ceremony and a comfortable place for your group to eat and drink afterwards. I provide a list of popular options, along with suggestions on how to find them and how to make them work best.
The center of it all! I walk you through exactly what a microwedding ceremony looks like and provide suggestions on how to handle things.
Topics include: Order of Events, Vows, First Look, Music, Chairs, Decorations, and Planning for Weather.
The Legal Stuff
The marriage license! You need to get it, complete it, and file it. Generally, your officiant is responsible for helping you with this, but I provide the basic need-to-know info. Only applicable to the USA.
The Little Stuff
Rehearsal dinner? Timing? First dance? I go over some of the little stuff, and explain what should be in your wedding day "Emergency Kit."
