Dallas Does Micro : The Rise of Micro Weddings in Dallas, TX

Updated: Feb 17, 2023



Gone are the days of extravagant 200-person weddings with over-the-top floral arrangements and a never-ending buffet line or having to chose which best friends to include in your wedding party. Say hello to the new trend in Dallas: micro weddings.

For those unfamiliar with the term, micro weddings refer to weddings with a guest list of 50 people or less. And let us tell you, they are all the rage in the Big D. But why, you ask? Well, let's dive into the pros and cons of having a micro wedding in Dallas, it's sure to not disappoint.


Pros:

  • Intimacy: Micro weddings allow couples to have a more intimate and personal experience with their nearest and dearest. No more awkward conversations with distant cousins and second cousins twice removed. This day is more centered around the couple and less about catering to everyone else's needs. This day is about 2 people and not 400 right?

  • Budget-friendly: A smaller guest list means a smaller budget. Couples can put their savings towards a dream honeymoon or a down payment on a house. Or put more money toward their photography / videography. Nothing is cheap about having a massive wedding.

  • More personalized: With a smaller crowd, couples can tailor their wedding to their exact tastes without having to compromise for a larger audience. You'd be surprised at the venues you could chose or the rooftop terraces that would accommodate a small wedding and have stellar views/high vibes.

  • Last but certainly not least, a fraction of the planning and headache that go into a smaller sized wedding. Just because its micro, doesn't mean the experience has to be.

Cons:

  • No big party: Let's be real, there's nothing quite like having all of your favorite people in one place to celebrate your love and dedication to one another. A micro wedding means a smaller party, and who doesn't love a good celebration? This might be the biggest draw back to having a smaller celebration, but it is also the most costly obviously.

  • Fewer gifts: A smaller guest list also means fewer gifts. But hey, at least you'll save on shipping costs for sending thank you notes!

  • Limited space: Depending on the venue, a micro wedding may limit the couple's options for a dream wedding location.

In conclusion, micro weddings in Dallas are a great option for couples who value intimacy and personalization over a big party. But, if you're someone who loves to dance the night away with all of your favorite people, then a micro wedding may not be for you. But I always say you can setup a later reception date down the road that more falls in line with the "big party" that you always dreamed of and you still get that sense of being the center of attention. It's a win win"


"Micro weddings in Dallas are the perfect way to tie the knot without getting tangled up in a big knot of guests." - A Wise (micro wedding) Bride once said.
