Micro Weddings

What the heck is a Micro Wedding??  It’s the response to the COVID-19 situation. 

 

It’s a wedding where guest counts are low, but the attention to detail throughout is HIGH!

 

The guest counts may be smaller, but the details are still fully developed and perhaps even enhanced thanks to a shift in a couple’s guest count and budget...think of it as having a lavish wedding for 50 guests that cost less than a night for 150 guests.

The Micro Wedding looks at this “pesky virus” right in the eye and says, “We’re still having a wedding, and it will be a fabulous affair!”

 

Here are just a few ways how we’re helping couple celebrating during COVID, while planning your wedding. 

  • The Guest count is around 50, think of these guests that would be at your wedding even without a formal invitation. 

  • Large wedding parties of 5 on each site will be refocused to the Maid of Honor and Bestman exclusively. 

  • Instead of inviting a dozen + college friends from “back in the day,” you’re inviting those 2 or 3 friends that you still talk with all of the time. 

  • Couples will still include all the details that they love and see on Pinterest, tagged to their boards - we say “bring on the favors, wedding cake, confetti” include whatever they want! 

  • Tabletop designs will be lush and low so that everyone can talk easily and create a more intimate feeling. Candles in a variety of style sized and colors will be added to the centerpieces to create a higher style for these lower guest count celebrations.

AT YOUR WEDDING

  • Couples will want to make guests feel special from the onset – couples will want to make everything on the day really personal and unique to each guest. Besides personalized escort cards now custom menus and favors that are taken a “notch up.”

  • While the table count will be down to around 5, the amount of detail to each of them will be elevated, with custom touches such as upgraded rentals, developed high-end menus creating more lush style, and higher caliber dining experience.  

  • Most importantly, couples will be able to spend more time with guests making each guest feel included as a part of this special day by creating personal moments at the wedding.

  • Plus, all the reasons you’re having a wedding a lovely heart-filled personal ceremony followed by a full-on celebration with all of the moments you’ve always wanted…see you on the dance floor!

Choosing the Micro Wedding Package is going to assure you that your wedding guests will love your version of Social (not so) Distancing, here’s what we have in mind:

PLANNING

¿De qué está hecha blanky y por qué es "pesada"?


Blanky es un "weighted blanket" o manta pesada, revestida de algodón puro y con un relleno de granos de vidrio tratado.




¿Cuál es el peso apropiado?


La manta pesada debe suponer entre un 10 y un 15% de su peso. Sin embargo, algunos de nuestros clientes optan por modelos algo más pesados. Si padece graves trastornos del sueño o un elevado nivel de ansiedad, le recomendamos un porcentaje superior (entre el 15 y el 20%).




¿Puedo compartir blanky con alguien?


¡Claro que sí! blanky está destinada a ser compartida. Sume el peso de las dos personas y compre una blanky que pese aproximadamente el 10% del resultado. Si no queda satisfecho con la solución y los pesos son significativamente diferentes, siempre puede optar por dos mantas individuales separadas.




¿Cómo puedo lavar mi manta pesada?


La blanky debe lavarse a 30 grados. Sin embargo te recomendamos que prestes atención a la capacidad de tu lavadora en términos de peso.




¿Cuál es el tamaño de blanky?


En este momento, puede adquirir su blanky en 2 tamaños para adultos, 150 x 200 cm y 220 x 200 cm y 140 x 200 cm para niños. Nuestras mantas también están disponibles en diferentes pesos (5 kg, 7 kg, 9 kg, 11 kg, 13 kg y 15 kg para adultos y 4 kg para niños).




¿Blanky tiene alguna contraindicación?


Las mantas pesadas son buenas para su salud y su uso es 100% seguro para la población en general. Sin embargo, le recomendamos que consulte a un médico en caso de embarazo o cualquier duda relacionada con una situación de salud específica.




¿Cuál es la política de devoluciones?


Si no está satisfecho con su blanky después de 30 días, le devolveremos su dinero.




¿Es suficientemente cálida para el invierno? Y en verano, ¿no produce demasiado calor?


Nuestro equipo ha seleccionado los mejores materiales para garantizar que blanky sea adecuada para varias temperaturas a lo largo del año. Máximo confort, garantizado.




¿Es blanky una manta pesada o un edredón pesado?


La principal diferencia entre un edredón pesado (con funda) y una manta pesada, aparte del nombre, es su funcionalidad. Las mantas pesadas están diseñadas específicamente para ayudar a dormir mejor, siendo excelentes para personas con algún problema o patología del sueño. (Para obtener más detalles sobre los efectos de una manta pesada sobre su sueño, por favor, consulte nuestra página de DORMIR MEJOR).





WEDDING WEEKEND

Timeline Management


On paper, it's perfect that timeline should be framed! However, we’re aware that sometimes things don’t go perfectly on time. We’ll monitor and keep notes on your timeline throughout the wedding to make sure we stay on track and avoid any significant problems.




Reception Setup


From escort cards to the cake table and wedding favors, we’ll make sure your reception spaces are set up properly for your guests’ arrival.




Distribute Final Payments


Some vendors will have a balance due on your wedding day. Instead of carrying checks around all night, you can hand them to our team, and we’ll handle all final payments.




Oversee Cards & Gifts


We don’t think your family should be responsible for moving those items to a safe place, so we’ll take care of that as you direct us to.




Ceremony Setup


We’ll make sure the chairs are lined up, and the aisle is clear. Any other details that need to be handled (signage, reserved seating, direction to other vendors) will be taken care of by our team.




2 On-Site Staff


Why two? Well, because sometimes your guests will need assistance with something, and we want to be sure someone is always available to take care of you!




Vendor Arrival & Setup


We’ll greet your vendors, assist with load-in, and make sure they have everything they need for a successful wedding experience for you and your guests.




Handout Gratuities


Our motto is “never expected, but always appreciated” we’ll share best practices, and take care of distributing them so you can focus on celebrating. If your vendors went above and beyond, you might want to offer a gratuity.




Run the Show


From entering the reception, speeches and toasts and other key moments of the night, we’re here to make sure that everything runs smoothly until the dance floor is full.”




Wedding Emergency Kit


It’s an awesome collection of anything that may be needed during the day, the kit includes phone chargers to bandaids and various tapes, Tide sticks, breath mints, and so much more can be found in this go-to kit.

“HBIC Weddings made our day and weeks leading up to the wedding much more manageable.  She was available to discuss details multiple times, provided great insight and advice on the things that normally you would miss.  On the day of the wedding, Diane was always there and working ahead of everybody else.”
