Ready to go micro? As couples turn to ‘minimonies’ to salvage their wedding plans, the micro-wedding trend is on the rise. Whether your wedding was postponed or you have always dreamed of an intimate ceremony, a purposeful and personalized wedding is still possible. Here is a simple guide to planning your Key West micro-wedding.
What is a micro-wedding and why are they becoming more popular?
As the name suggests, a micro-wedding can include all the characteristics of a traditional wedding, be it on a smaller scale. Not to be confused with an elopement, micro-weddings can host a small number of guests. Couples have always embraced the micro-wedding for a multitude of reasons, including less costs, stress, and planning, and more freedom, relaxed vibes, and quality time with guests.
Find your dream venue
Only minutes from historic Old Town, the Sunset Green Event Lawn offers a lush green landscape and versatility for your Key West micro-wedding. The accessible, multipurpose space is nestled between 24 North Hotel and our sister hotel The Gates Key West, providing convenient access just steps from your hotel room. Save the date and let us help design your dream space. For inquiries, please call the Sales Office at (305) 600-1425 or fill out our Request For Proposal form.
Plan your guest list & accommodations
A micro-wedding guest list typically includes only truly significant others, like close friends and family. These smaller guest lists allow for more freedom and time to make your moment more memorable. Whether you’re celebrating big or small, 24 North Hotel is well-equipped to meet your guest accommodation needs. Our central location makes it easy for your guests to get around Key West, and our comfortable rooms and on-site dining options ensure that your group starts the day off on the right foot.
Hire a wedding planner & find reliable vendors
Just because your micro-wedding is smaller in scale, doesn’t negate the extensive planning involved. Consider a local professional wedding planner for your detail-driven day. Local planners may have access to vendor deals you wouldn’t otherwise find. Traditional wedding planning checklists include mailing out invitations and selecting a florist, cateter, cake maker, photographer, officiant, musician, and decor and rentals. Planning a wedding may seem overwhelming, but micro-weddings allow you to enjoy your special day more on your terms.
