In a world where weddings have traditionally been grand affairs with hundreds of guests, it's refreshing to see couples embracing more intimate and personalized celebrations. Over the years, weddings have evolved to encompass a spectrum of options, ranging from the ultra-small and secretive elopements to the slightly larger yet still intimate micro weddings. In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of different wedding types, highlighting their unique characteristics, and helping you decide which one might be right for you.
1. The Traditional Wedding: Let's start with the classic. Traditional weddings are often large-scale affairs with a considerable guest list, typically held in grand venues. They include various customs, such as the walk down the aisle, a cocktail hour of sorts, a reception with a full meal, and often a dance party that goes late into the night.
2. The Micro Wedding: Micro weddings strike a balance between intimacy and tradition. These weddings have a smaller guest list, usually consisting of 20 to 50 close family members and friends. Couples can still have a traditional ceremony and reception, but on a smaller scale, allowing for a more personalized and intimate experience.
3. The Elopement: Elopements have come a long way from being clandestine affairs. Today, elopements are about couples choosing to get married privately or with a small group of witnesses in a unique location, often without the traditional trappings of a wedding. Elopements focus solely on the couple and their commitment to each other, emphasizing the emotional significance of the moment.
4. And finally, you can have the No Ceremony Wedding aka the Sign n Go. While this option technically isn’t a wedding, the Sign and Go service offered at My Path My Purpose Co leaves you legally married without the planning, without the guests, and without the extra expenses. It is private, it is convenient, and it is fast. Appointments can be scheduled the same day as you obtain your license!
Weddings have evolved to cater to a wide range of preferences and circumstances. From the grandeur of traditional weddings to the intimate simplicity of elopements, there's no one-size-fits-all approach. The key is to choose the type of wedding that resonates most with you as a couple, reflecting your personalities and your vision for your special day. Remember, it's not about the size or style of the wedding; it's about the love and commitment you share with your partner.
