Feeling a little overwhelmed with all the big wedding stuff out there...

Yea, I get it! Hi, I'm Jennie.

At microWED collective I know many couples planning a small wedding or elopement are facing a really overwhelming experience having to sift through resources made for big weddings—which leads to feeling left out, confused, and frustrated and holds them back from bringing their micro wedding vision to life. Yikes!

I understand what it feels like to be caught up in all the big wedding hoopla, the feelings of "should I have a big wedding?", and "left-outed-ness" (is that a word??...it is now!) that comes with trying to use the traditional wedding planning websites and platforms because it wasn't long ago that I was planning a micro wedding, too. I believe small weddings are the absolute best and you should have a wedding that is undeniably you so I'm using my experience to create the first (!!) small wedding planning platform in the US.

So, if you're reading this and feeling the same way, know it's okay to want something different. Your wedding day should be about you and your partner, not what society deems "normal." Trust me, it's worth it to stick to your vision and create a day that truly reflects who you are as a couple.

This platform provides everything you need to bring your intimate wedding to life—whether you hire all the people or you're a full DIY-er, or somewhere in between. We're here to be with you every step of the way.

Welcome to microWED collective.

My micro wedding story

I might be the most unlikely wedding blogger on the planet--I never dreamed I would end up in the wedding industry. But 2023 had some pivotable moments that, with their perfect intersection, led me to create microWED collective.

So, let's rewind to February 2022, when I said "yes" to the love of my life and started planning my dream wedding. At first, I was all about the big wedding hype. But as I dove into the planning process, I quickly realized that it wasn't really "us." Plus, the costs were skyrocketing beyond our budget so I pivoted to planning a smaller, simpler wedding. And let me tell you, I was beyond excited! I committed to keeping the event as simple as possible, both for financial reasons and because I simply didn't want to stress dealing with all the details. I didn't really spend a lot of time searching for resources; I hired a 'day of' coordinator, looked for a few key vendors, and called it a day—or so I thought. Despite my best efforts to keep it simple, I found it was hard to cut the noise of what a "typical" wedding is or "should" be; I felt left out and frustrated. Even though nobody was directly pressuring me, the pervasive societal norms and expectations loomed over me. Many people reminded me that I wasn't like the "typical" bride, which really bothered me. I mean, why should there be a "typical" label in the first place?

Planning frustrations aside, our wedding was a beautiful and intimate celebration with our closest family and friends. I loved every minute of it and was proud that I created a stress-free day that truly reflected us as a couple. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

I just knew there had to be other couples like us who wanted to keep things simple and stress-free—turns out, there are lots of y'all and I am so excited to create a community just for us.
