Couples in Cyprus and worldwide have had their hearts broken by the stress and upheaval caused by the pandemic. We’ve seen brides and grooms downsize, postpone and even cancel their weddings as Covid forced restrictions that turned the wedding world upside down. But love always shines, and now couples are embracing the trend of intimate weddings and getting married in front of a small group of friends and family. There are many advantages to having an intimate wedding in Cyprus. Soon you might be wondering why a micro wedding in Cyprus wasn’t the plan all along.
Intimate weddings can be grander in style
Without massive catering costs, your budget is more flexible when you plan a small wedding. Your dream wedding can be more elaborate with dreamy florals, stunning decor and exquisite lighting that will impress your guests. Or perhaps that expensive designer wedding dress you fell in love with might now be within your reach.
Intimate and micro weddings
If you are hosting a small wedding in Cyprus, you can focus on your loved ones. Instead of rushing around to talk to everyone before its time to cut the cake, you can have in-depth soulful conversations with people. The timeline isn’t so full, with fewer speeches and group photos to take care of, so everyone is relaxed and carefree.
The experience for your guests at an intimate wedding is very different from one with 100 guests. The focus is on the occasion of celebrating together and sharing love through sentimental heart-to-hearts, thoughtful touches like personalized wedding favors and decadent details like lux wedding stationery, fancy cocktails and Instagrammable signage.
You might serve perfectly presented dishes during a four-course plated dinner rather than have a buffet. Or you might have an upbeat trio band play soulful tunes during dinner rather than having a DJ. For sure intimate weddings are memorable for the guests as well as the just-married love birds.
Many options for lovely venues for destination weddings

Luxurious Cyprus wedding venues like Anassa Hotel and Amara Hotel are also beautiful places to tie the knot. You might like to have the wedding in a fancy mansion in the mountains or a trendy beachfront you can rent privately for days of celebrating. Or maybe a quaint winery or old cottage in Troodos Mountains is more your style like Casale
