If you’re hearing the words “micro wedding” everywhere, there’s good reason. The average wedding in 2022 cost around $30,000, according to a survey conducted by The Knot. That's a big chunk of change.
A micro wedding, however, could cost as little as $1,000, and couples are seeing the benefits. The money savings can be substantial, allowing for a significant home payment or extended honeymoon. It’s also much more affordable to enjoy high-end experiences, such as a destination wedding, with a small guest list.
Whatever a couple chooses to do for their wedding day, micro weddings can be easier to plan, more intimate, and less stressful. We scoured multiple Reddit threads and compiled a handful of ideas Redditors shared for a budget-friendly micro wedding.
