What Is a Micro Wedding?

A micro wedding is a relatively intimate event, usually with no more than 50 guests and often with the ceremony and reception in the same location. Micro weddings can still feature all of your favorite wedding traditions – from the the first dance to the cake cutting – just on a much smaller scale. It’s the perfect compromise between an elopement and a big wedding!

Cover the Basics

Aside from the marriage license and officiant, the two most important things needed to create a micro wedding celebration your guests will enjoy include:

  • Food
  • Drinks

At UP on the Roof, there’s something for everyone on our seasonal menu of sophisticated Southern bites, from lobster ravioli to wagyu beef carpaccio, and our staff will help you curate your ideal spread.

Of course, no wedding is complete without toasts, and our selection of clever cocktails, interesting wines, and local craft beers are made for raising a glass to the happy couple.

And if music and dancing are part of your vision, we can help make that happen, too.

Add the Details

Now that you’ve taken care of the factors that most impact the overall experience, you can think about how you want your micro wedding to look. Couples with modern tastes will love UP on the Roof’s industrial chic feel, but you can certainly change the vibe to whatever you’d like with the right décor, such as centerpieces, altar setups, and fun signs. For all these things and more, we work with some of Greenville’s best wedding vendors who can help bring the day you’ve dreamed of to life.

Personalize It to the Max

With a smaller guest list and cozier venue, your micro wedding has the chance to be anything but cookie-cutter. Sharing vows you wrote yourselves and including sentimental details like heirloom jewelry make the occasion feel extra special.

And for a day your guests won’t soon forget, include personal touches for them, too—it’s much easier to do with a smaller guest list! They’ll definitely appreciate that you took the time to handwrite a meaningful note for each guest at their seat or create one-of-a-kind wedding favors.
