During these times, couples are having to get creative with their wedding planning. As a result, many couples are deciding to have a micro wedding in order to get married and celebrate, but under the new circumstances put into place in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. A micro wedding has all of the usual aspects of a wedding, however, it has 50 or fewer guests. Here are some examples for planning a micro wedding on Long Island during a pandemic.

Picking the right micro wedding venue
The first step to planning your special day is finding the venue of your dreams. When selecting the setting for your micro wedding, try to find a place that will accommodate a smaller group. Since many couples are re-scheduling their weddings to a later date there are many options at various venues that would fit what you are searching for. 

Outdoor weddings are popular right now, however, be mindful of what season you are getting married in. If the weather is colder, you might have to consider looking into indoor venues. Another way to celebrate a micro wedding is in your backyard, but catered by all of your vendors. For instance, renting a tent and working with your florist to decorate the backyard is a great way to personalize your traditional wedding on a smaller scale.  

Make it a sweet experience
Every great wedding includes great food, but there’s always room for dessert. When it comes to your wedding cake, you can speak to your baker in order to customize your desserts. A popular idea is supplementing your cake with cupcakes.

Capture the intimate moments 
Even with a small number of guests, you will want to have memories of this day with family and friends. One way is to hire a photographer and videographer to capture the day’s events. 

Although your affair is on a smaller scale this does not mean that you have to compromise having the wedding of your dreams. There are many ways you can plan your micro wedding to make it unique and enjoyable, but still Covid friendly.

Want to plan your wedding colors based on the season you’re getting married in? If so, check out some popular wedding color schemes, floral and décor ideas for 2020-2021 that are sure to make your special day the event of the season!
 
Fall In Love 
 
If you’re planning a fall-themed wedding, you’re in luck! Autumn allows for tons of gorgeous wedding color ideas, especially with the beautiful fall foliage. Trending colors include fired brick, maroon, pumpkin spice, or rust. These colors are also perfect to add into your bouquet with lots of sunflowers, peonies, roses, or other wildflowers. Additionally, fall foliage alone can make a visually appealing case for your bouquet or backdrop for an outdoor wedding. Even your bridesmaid dresses or venue decorations can combine these colors; a beautiful maroon or burnt orange would tie everything together and have your guests falling in love. 
 
 
 
Winter Wonderland Colors
 
Is there anything quite as magical as a winter wedding? Deck the halls with these winter wedding ideas that are bound to make you and your guests as merry as can be. We all know that winter can be pretty chilly, but if you’re set on wearing a short-sleeved or strapless wedding gown, how about adding a faux fur coat? As for color scheming, you can select the traditional classic red and green color palette with variations of evergreen, crimson, and burgundy. However, if you want to create more of a winter wonderland, the icy snowfall and midnight blues, sparkling silvers, or the all winter whites will fully embrace the magical scenery. Finally, adding a little bit of winter décor (like evergreen trees, snowflakes, or holly) would the perfect addition to create that winter wonderland. 
 
 
 
“I Do” to Spring Wedding Colors
 
As spring comes into full bloom, the best way to go about planning your wedding colors is to fully embrace the season! For example, with its pastel and lighter palettes, some wedding colors could include dusty rose, sky blue, mint, petal pink, lilac, and seafoam green. Between bridesmaid dresses, wedding décor, or your bouquet, these colors can be incorporated into all aspects of the wedding. Additionally, speaking of bouquets and floral arrangements, you can embrace springtime to the fullest with the season’s beautiful, vibrant flowers (like tulips, garden roses, and hyacinths) as a way to create the wedding of your dreams.
 
 
 
Fun in the Summer
 
With its sunny skies and warm weather, summer is the most popular season for weddings. Therefore, some décor ideas to capture your guests’ attention may include gorgeous lush greenery and bright, colorful flowers cascading along the altar or seating. As for wedding colors, bright, jeweled-tones like royal blue, amethyst, magenta, or marigold are perfect to make your wedding pop. However, if you’re looking for more of a beach-themed wedding, think of using ocean-inspired colors like Tiffany-blue or mint green. Pairing these colors alongside white or light blue flowers is the perfect way to go.

Small, casual ceremonies are growing in popularity during these times. An informal setting for your wedding may urge you to go for a laid-back look. Here are nine styles brides can pick to stand out on their big day.

Short dresses are a great casual style that still gives you the feel of a wedding dress. Oscar de la Renta’s fall collection features a tiered layered dress and a Saffron bubble dress that put a spin on the classic wedding dress. If you are looking for a simple dress, Reem Acra features a strapless lace dress with a fishtail train. For a more casual look, you the strapless body con dress with a triangle-shaped sweetheart neckline. 

If you’re looking for a tea-length dress, Justin Alexander’s Lillian West collection includes a dress with a tulle skirt. The venice lace and trim give the dress a boho look perfect for an outdoor wedding. 

Halfpenny London’s Songbird collection includes a layered high-low skirt paired with a simple cami and a puff sleeve top.  
 
 
 
For a completely different look, switch it up with a pair of trousers. The Songbird collection from Halfpenny London features Henson Trousers which are paired with the Oliver Corset and the Campagne Cape, which still gives you the flow of a wedding dress. You can also pair the trousers with a blazer and blouse. Galia Lahav showcases another way to style trousers by including a satin overskirt paired with a sheer corset and a metallic belt.

No matter what your style is, you can still find the perfect attire for your wedding day.
