Microweddings are the newest trend in COVID-era events as couples ditch extravagant gatherings and opt for intimate celebrations instead. Also called ‘Minimonies’, these small scale ceremonies have under 50 people – limiting the reception to family and very close friends.
The guest list isn’t the only thing scaled down for a microwedding. The cost of a typical 100 person wedding in Philadelphia is between $8,000 and $35,000. Your price depends on key budget factors like venue, food, entertainment and of course the wedding dress. A microwedding costs just a fraction of that, averaging between $1,500 and $10,000.
Planning A Microwedding
Although microweddings are smaller, they still include a tremendous amount of planning and efficient execution. For this reason, we suggest hiring a wedding planner or day-of coordinator. Pennsylvainia’s own Eventricity LLC offers ceiling to floorboard decor and planning options from full, partial all the way to the final details.
Your microwedding might not have everyone you had hoped on its guest list but this doesn’t mean you have to compromise the size of your venue. Having a larger wedding can be possible with the safety precautions put in place by The Drexelbrook. This spacious venue is ideal for couples with larger guest lists.
During their January 27th Open House the tables were spread over 6 feet apart allowing people from different households to enjoy the event safely. If you’re looking for a more intimate event, we suggest the Brandywine Ballroom in the Drexelbrook Mansion.
The Drexelbrook’s incredible team offers in-house catering and a full service restaurant. Vegetarian and gluten free options are available upon request but the harris lamb over sweet potato risotto is a fan favorite. Not to mention the connected Holiday Inn for convenient guest accommodations.
