What Is A Micro Wedding?

A Micro Wedding is a smaller, intimate Wedding that takes place in a Ceremony with a few Guests and/or in a reception with a few dozen people.

While it’s not uncommon for these types of Weddings to be referred to as “mini” or “micro” in many parts of the world, the term “micro” is actually an abbreviation for “micro-numerical” (1-100).

In Toronto, a Micro Wedding can take place anywhere from 50 to 200 guests, depending on the preference of the Bride and Groom. While the majority of popular Wedding venues are usually not suitable for a small Wedding, you can find a few options that are suitable.

You can also look into renting a Wedding Venue or having your Wedding at a Toronto park or other outdoor location. You’ll have to be creative to find a way to host a small wedding in Toronto, but it can definitely be done!  There are definitely a number of Wedding Venues in Toronto that cater too Micro Weddings.

Benefits Of Hosting A Micro Wedding.

Hosting a small Wedding with a few close friends and family can be a very rewarding experience.

You can make your Wedding planning easier by choosing your Guests who best suit your Wedding style. In most cases just it’s mostly Family and Friends whom are the closet to you and your hearts. 

Additionally with smaller Wedding, you can keep the cost down by skipping extravagant details, like elaborate centerpieces, big bridal party looks, or a fancy banquet hall. Plus you can also enjoy more time with your Wedding party and more personal moments between you and your Guests. With a smaller Wedding, you don’t have to worry about your Guests being overwhelmed with the size of the Event. With a Micro Wedding, you get the best of both worlds: the intimate feeling of a traditional Wedding and the convenience of a small Wedding.

How To Find The Right Venue For Your Micro Wedding.

This is going to depend on a few things, like what type of Wedding you’re most interested in and what you can afford.  Remember Micro Weddings are all about the cost saving measures as opposed to the hosting a much larger, lavish Event.

There are several different types of Weddings and each of them with their own benefits, so you’ll need to figure out which one best suits your needs.  The most common types of Weddings are as follows.

  1. Formal: Engaged couples who want a more traditional style, Wedding.
  2. Off-the-Dress: A more casual Wedding that’s less focused on established Wedding traditions than a more formal Wedding. So essentially one step down from a Formal Micro Wedding.
  3. Renewal: A more casual type of Wedding that’s meant to celebrate the Couple’s commitment and/or love for each other. This style of Wedding is very much accepted as an informal Wedding, casual and easy going.  In one sense it’s a party with just a few formalities thrown in for good measure.

Now that you know more about the different types of Weddings, you can start to narrow down your options.

Choosing The Right Vendors For Your Micro Wedding.

Vendors can make or break your Wedding.

With all of the planning that goes into a Wedding, you might be willing to do most of the work yourself, but you’ll need to keep in mind that it’s important to hire Vendors such as your Wedding Photographer or Videographer who are capable of doing their jobs without causing you any stress.  And really who needs even more stress on your Wedding day!

It’s also important to carefully select Wedding vendors, who will play important roles in your Big Day, like your Wedding Photographer and Wedding Officiant.  With a Micro Wedding, you don’t have to worry about having a large number of Guests (or a large budget), so you can focus on selecting only the best Wedding Vendors for your Event.

Another great way to keep your Vendors from overwhelming you on your Big Day is to focus on the details when it comes to choosing the favorite Vendors.  An essential part in planning any Micro Wedding.

Here are some tips for doing just that.

Choose Vendors who have experience working with small(er) Weddings. While there are many Wedding vendors that work with small Weddings, it’s important to make sure that your Vendor has experience working with this type of Event.

Keep your budget in mind when choosing Wedding vendors. With a Micro Wedding, you traditionally don’t have a lot of money to spend on your Wedding, so it’s important to carefully select Vendors who are capable of working within your Budget.  Communication will be very important here.  Make sure that as both a future Bride and Groom and the Vendors that you’ve chosen for your Wedding communicate properly and thoroughly to ensure success for your Big Day!

As such, choose Vendors who are responsive and easy to communicate with. With a small Wedding, you need to feel comfortable communicating with your Vendors, so it’s important to choose Vendors who are responsive and easy to work with.

Choose Vendors who have a good reputation in your Community. With a small Wedding, it’s important to choose a vendor who has a good reputation within your Community.  This will help to build a sense of trust and confidence in your Vendor(s). Choose vendors who are flexible. With a small Wedding, you might have to make last-minute changes, so it’s important to choose a Vendor who is flexible and willing to work with you on making last-minute changes.


In conclusion Toronto Micro Weddings can indeed be a blessing when you’re hosting a smaller to midsized Wedding.  Both cost effective as well as endearing if your considering a limited number of Guests.  And the best part of all at the end of the day…. You’ll be keeping a great deal of your hard earned money in your pocket.

As such I would encourage any young Couple to seriously consider a Toronto Micro Wedding whenever possible.  After all there’s not to many of us born with a silver spoon stuck in our mouths!
