Why the "Bridgerton" Wedding Proves that 2021 is the Year of Micro Weddings
February 05, 2021
If you’re anything like the rest of us, you’ve definitely binged the new Netfix show Bridgerton by now. The lush period drama evokes the iconic Gossip Girl structure while captivating audiences with incredible costumes and romantic tension that’s bound to put anybody in their feels. And to top it all off, the enchanting main characters, Simon Bassett and Daphne Bridgerton, tied the knot in such a way that threw everyone for a loop. Simon and Daphne forgoed an extravagant event for a more intimate ceremony with only their closest friends and family in attendance, just like so many brides and brides-to-be have had to do over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For such a grandiose show to end in such a low-key manner only reinforces the charm and beauty of saying “I do” to the one you love in an intimate setting. Bridgerton proves that micro weddings will have a big role to play in 2021!
And if you’re still obsessing over Simon and Daphne’s wedding, check out these tips below for how to capture a similar romance at your own micro wedding:
Flowers, flowers & did we mention flowers?
A huge reason why the wedding (and all of the events) on Bridgerton looked so opulent was due to the show’s use of flowers! When planning out your own micro wedding, don’t skim over planning out your floral arrangements. A little added emphasis will go a long way to making your intimate ceremony feel all the more memorable.
The producers of Bridgerton know this better than anyone—festive lighting is a must for any wedding day! Whether you’re tying the knot outside and need to liven up your tent or looking to capture a welcoming and cozy atmosphere, you definitely can’t skimp on lighting for your micro wedding.
Take a hint from Simon and Daphne’s wedding: subtle, elegant details go a long way. Again, the producers of Bridgerton chose to keep it minimal with sleek table linens and floral bouquets at their romantic reception, and the result was a dignified and sophisticated setting. Less is more, and this is especially true when planning out the decor for your micro wedding!
A staple piece
While the Bridgerton wedding was low-key for the most part, there was one extravagant detail at the romantic affair: the 4.5 foot tall wedding cake! If you’re still itching to capture aspects of a grand ceremony at your own micro wedding, hone in on something that you don’t mind spending a little extra money on. Go over-the-top with your wedding cake like Bridgerton or plan out an opulent three-course dinner—one key grandiose detail will make your micro wedding feel all the more special.
