Check out Cavender Castle's Micro Wedding Packages

Micro Weddings:

Micro weddings are the biggest trend in the wedding industry.   The size of weddings has been gradually decreasing for over ten years.   Then Covid-19 hit the industry hard with limitations on the number of people allowed to gather, cancellations, postponements and lots of confusion.   All of this caused a radical change in the way that couples are looking at their wedding plans.   Instead of planning large, expensive parties many couples are downsizing to focus on being able to safely have their wedding with fewer people and those most important in their lives.   Enter Micro Wedding Packages and Micro Wedding Venues.

It turns out that at Cavender Castle we have been conducting micro weddings for years!   Over the years these smaller events have been commonly referred to as Elopements and  “Small Weddings”.    We look at the new micro wedding craze as basically the same thing we have been doing for years.   Our parent company is even called Small Wedding Experts LLC.   We “get-it” when it comes to Elopements and Micro Weddings.  



So what is the difference between an Elopement and Micro Wedding?

Traditionally, the two of you running off and getting married without anyone knowing was called an “Elopement”.   Las Vegas was a common place to visit and elope.   So were some of the tacky wedding chapels that cropped up in places like Helen, GA. and Pigeon Forge, TN.

But over the years the elopement term broadened to include immediate family and close friends.   Cavender Castle has been offering upscale “Elopements” for up to 25 guests since 2004!  We also offer stress free All Inclusive Elopement Packages.

Today, we consider a Micro Wedding to be a gathering of the couple’s closest family members  who gathering for a memorable wedding ceremony and simple reception.  Usually, this means 25-50 people, but sometimes a few more.    Most couples on Micro Wedding Packages tend to focus on having a memorable event that is both affordable, and stress free.   They look at the money saved on the wedding as an investment towards a house or for a nicer honeymoon.   Priorities have changed.   Forget the big expensive party for “friends” and guests you may not even know.  Instead, the focus is on family, close friends, and use the savings for an epic Honeymoon!
