How long are the events?
The weddings are 90 minutes and the showers are 120 minutes.
How many guests can I have?
Shooting for a minimum of 10, and a maximum of 30. Due to COVID-19, we’re unable to have more guests than that and even this number is subject to change due to mandates enforced by the State of New York. However, we offer the option to Zoom call all of your loved ones electronically to celebrate with you.
If I have other wedding vendors booked, can I use them?
Since our team of vendors have built a vision for each event, in order to ensure they are able to serve you as efficiently as possible, you will have to stick with the curated list of vendors provided.
Who will I be working with?
Only the best vendors in WNY! We have put together carefully constructed packages with vendors we know and love that will work with you for the event. Click on any one of the events to learn more!

Our directory! Once you’re learning more about each event offered, you can click on any one of the vendors to learn more!
How much is this gonna cost?
It depends on the package. For micro showers, it’s $3,100 plus tax. Micro wedding ceremony #1 is $3,300 plus tax, and micro wedding ceremony #2 is $4,300 plus tax.
What is the difference between the packages, and why can’t I select a different package for the date I’d like?
Each package was designed around the venue it’s being offered at, so to be able to provide the most amount of value possible – we’re working with what they’ve got. Due to the intimate nature of these events, the catering team will have to ensure they can create the best possible food options. So if the venue can offer food – they’ll provide it for all three events that day!
How much is a deposit?
In order to reserve your micro event, an initial non-refundable retainer of $300 is required. Payments will be made through PayPal to reserve the time slot.
When are the rest of the payments due?
The first payment of $850 plus tax is due 60 days in advance of the event, with the remaining balance due 30 days before the event. remaining payments will be collected via electronic invoice.
What are the time slots available?
For showers, the time slots available are 11AM-1PM, 2:30PM-4:30PM, and 6PM-8PM. For weddings, the time slots are 12PM-1:30PM, 3PM-4:30PM, and 6PM-7:30PM.
Are these customizable?
Our team of vendors have built a vision for each event. In order to ensure they are able to serve you as efficiently as possible and keep this experience as stress-free as possible, we are unable to offer any customization’s or modifications to the packages. That being said, depending on location and package, some vendors do offer add ons and upgrades. So once you book, reach out and ask vendors for details.
What if NYS mandates change affecting my date?
Times are definitely weird and uncertain right now – but we are committed to helping you walk down that aisle! Our vendors will do what they can to keep the party going for you keeping in mind the safety regulations for gatherings. However, in the event of a cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, another date will be selected.
Can I choose my dessert flavors?
For the most part, yes! But the contact outlines the specifications, and you can always contact the baker to make special requests.
Can I make modifications to food & drinks?
That would depend on the vendor. We’d suggest any and all conversations about modifications, add ons, or upgrades need to be with the respective vendors
When will I receive my photos?
The affiliate photographer will deliver the images in a timely manner of between 6-8 weeks. November and December weddings are not guaranteed before the holidays.
What’s the video will I get, and when?
Each couple will receive a 60-second wedding trailer of their micro wedding that will be delivered digitally 6-8 weeks after the event.
What if I book a micro event, but change my mind? Can I get a refund?
We would strongly suggest that you do your homework first to determine if these style of events are the best option for you, because refunds aren’t provided for clients that cancel their event. If you have any questions at all, we suggest you reach out and send us an email!
