Hi there my friend, it looks like you’re planning your micro wedding. Here’s some good news, after reading this quick blog you’ll be 100% ready to tackle your timeline since it’s basically done for you, below!
There are some pretty amazing benefits to having a micro wedding, not to mention with all the Covid mandates in 2020 and potentially in 2021, Micro Weddings are where it is at. One of the biggest reasons couples pick to have a Micro Wedding is because it’s easily one of the most relaxing and intimate ways to celebrate. It also allows for a more relaxed atmosphere for you and your guests.
I highly encourage you to create a micro wedding timeline so that your day does not get off course. A timeline will help you keep track of the time and allow you to implement flexibility during your micro wedding celebration.
It’s vital to ensure that your day has a natural flow for you, your guests, and your vendors.
Let’s jump in and start planning your micro wedding day timeline! 👇🏻
As mentioned above, I highly recommend creating a micro wedding day timeline. Have you ever attended a wedding and sort of felt like you had no idea what was going on? You weren’t sure when the food was going to be served when you could grab a drink, or even when the event would be over?
Yeah, me too!
Due to the smaller and more intimate feeling that your micro wedding will provide for you and your guests, it’s essential to have a timeline in place so that your guests don’t end up feeling like they’re attending a never-ending backyard party.
Things to think about when putting your micro wedding timeline together.

It would help if you highlighted the things that matter the most to you and that are essential to your wedding day. It’s also crucial to add in wiggle room. As a photographer, I can tell you some of the most amazing memories I’ve captured for my couples, are the unplanned moments.
“On your wedding day, don’t be afraid to stary off your timeline a little. As long as I’m aware of the shift in the timeline, I can help make adjustments as needed and I won’t miss any planned shots.”

Along with being an “elder millennial” wedding and lifestyle photographer, I’m also a family gal. I’m recently engaged to my best friend of 10 years, mama to a rad teenage daughter (who happens to photograph weddings with me), the owner of (2) cute little pups, and driver of a yellow Dodge Challenger. On non-wedding days, you’ll most likely find me in the gym by 7:30 am getting my cardio on and then hitting up my favorite local San Luis Obispo California hotspots with my fiance, daughter, and friends. Traveling adventures are my jam, there’s no place I won’t go with my camera in hand.
