Hi! Mallory and Cassie here with Pop of Color. We launched our micro wedding business earlier this year after realizing there was a huge need for small scale, intimate, and affordable weddings. So what is a micro wedding? We like to think of a micro wedding as somewhere in between an elopement and a traditional wedding. With a micro, you don’t have to give anything up! You still get all the elements of a traditional wedding—sometimes more—but with a much smaller guest count (and price tag).
At Pop of Color, we offer all-inclusive packages for up to 60 guests. We provide absolutely everything from the venue, to the vendors, the food, beverages, floral, styling, and more. We’re partnered with The Wandering Wagon which provides our couples with the most adorable mobile bars for that extra touch! You have the freedom to customize your event exactly the way you want. First dance? Check. Sit down dinner? Check. Signature cocktails? Yep! All you and your party have to do is show up and celebrate while we take care of the rest!
We speak with so many people about their weddings, and a common theme we often see is that weddings are stressful and eventually the event seems to be about everyone else except the couple. We see people moving towards smaller weddings because they give the couple a chance to focus on what really matters. At Pop of Color, we don’t think micro weddings are just trend – they’re here to stay! Especially now with COVID-19.
So how do you get started on planning your micro wedding? You’ll want to talk with all of your current vendors to see what their policies are first. Next, you’ll create a smaller guest count. This can be challenging for many couples, but also liberating! This is where you get to pick the most important people to you! The next step is customizing your timeline. Micro weddings can vary anywhere between 1–3 hours long, so you’ll want to make sure you have a clear plan on what elements are most significant to you!
It’s important to note that you may encounter push back from family and friends about your decision to go smaller. This is normal. Society has told us we must have large and extravagant celebrations when in reality, there’s something very sweet about keeping your wedding small. Always remember what is best for you and your partner!
If you think a micro wedding would be a good fit for you, Pop of Color would love to help you get started!
