Micro Wedding- An option during uneasy times

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Let’s talk about a Micro Wedding and how it can help during the mounting concerns and uneasiness surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Do not throw away your date just yet.

Are you dreaming of a luxurious wedding day with gourmet food, a top-shelf bar and gorgeous decorations? If those things seem like a dream way out of your budget, or simply impossible due to the global health crisis,  rest assured that it doesn’t have to be. One option to help plans continue is to cut back the biggest thing; the guest count.

A lot of couples love the idea of being able to elope and have that destination wedding. But right now is that feasible? Travel bans, gathering restrictions, and canceled flights have thrown a hammer into everyone’s plans. With a Micro Wedding, you still have the destination feels without spending an astronomic amount, no travelling, and no worries about guest count limits.

 

Micro Budget

The best part about a Micro Wedding is being able to use a micro budget. You can save with having 50 or less of your closest family members and friends to celebrate with you, having an elegant, tasteful reception.

Small Event space for lower guest count

Larger weddings are a bit more difficult to celebrate with all your guests, and sometimes you only have time to greet them. Let’s truly celebrate love with those we cherish the most. Hosting a Micro Wedding gives you more time to interact with the minimal guests you chose to invite. These should be the most important people in your life. With a smaller guest count, you will have more time to enjoy the food and the entertainment on the dance floor, along with all of the elements to make your day perfect.

Let’s transform your dream wedding day into reality. At Mediterranean Villa we are here to help.

For more information, reach out to us via our inquiry form to ask about available dates.

Ring in Engagement Season

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

Let’s ring in the engagement season at Mediterranean Villa! Tis the engagement season, and it is in full swing. Trends show that most couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. Wonder why? Firstly, many holidays occur during this time period. As a result, our family and friends are gathering, and they are present to celebrate the happy news.

Secondly, the holiday season is a memorable time for a proposal. It’s easy to remember what day you were engaged on when it falls around or on a holiday. Maybe the question was popped during a romantic drive through the Prairie Holiday Lights, or it may have happened while the Ball dropped in Times Square!

As a venue, this our most exciting time of the year. We get to meet so many different couples and learn about their love stories. Every couple has a unique and fun engagement story that we love to hear about.

How to Write Your Wedding Vows- 7 Meaningful Ways

Where there is Love

there is Life!

Knowing how to write your wedding vows is one of the most delicate tasks. The words you and your soulmate recite to each other will be cherished for years and years to come….

 

How to write your Wedding Vows:

 

 

Remember to start early. Your vows are going to be recited in front of a lot of people, so starting early will give you time to plan and take some of the stress off.

Carry a notebook…Write down things that your partner does that make you happy and maybe even a little annoyed (through thick and thin, right)? Write down things that made you fall in LOVE. All the little quirks and silly little puns that you have shared. Memories made and future plans. Of course you will not use all that you have wrote down in your final vows, but it will give you lots of material to be inspired by.

Discuss your vows with your Fiancé. We do not want any surprises at the altar. Make sure you are both on the same page. Are we going corky and short, or sentimental and long? You want to have the same style, tone and length.

Not a writer? DON’T panic… Start by saying who your fiancé is to you. Your best friend, lover, soulmate… Partner in crime. Do not forget to say “I love you”, of course! You would be surprised with how many people forget to say I love you.

Get sappy, maybe even SILLY! Do not be ashamed to pull on the heart strings. If the words are heartfelt they are not cheesy. Making jokes in your vows will help your nerves and get your guests laughing… Remember those “little annoying things”. The gift of making your soon to be spouse smile will serve your marriage well.

Always end with a final promise… The promise of forever, until death do us part.

 

Practice. Practice reciting your vows. Read them a few times. Memorize them and breathe. YOU’VE GOT THIS!

Utilizing your Vows after your marriage….

This is some of the best wedding advice we have heard. If you and your spouse get in an argument, get out your vows, sit on opposite sides of the room (with or without a bottle of wine) and re-read the promises that you have made to each other out loud. This shall remind you both of why you chose each other forever.
