Transcript for Micro-weddings have been trending as a safer alternative to large weddings
We are back now with a trend alert for micro weddings. As the pandemic scrambles couples' plans for big gatherings, micro weddings are looking for downsized celebrations. Many companies have solutions to help them tie the knot. You may seal this declaration with a kiss. Reporter: As the pandemic made large gatherings like weddings impossible, people across the country made a shift. We had a micro wedding. We decided to go a different direction. We had been engaged for two and a half years. We really didn't want to put it off any longer so we decided let's have a micro wedding. Reporter: Many couples deciding to not let covid-19 stop them from expressing their love. Instead, scaling back. A micro wedding typically caps guests at around 50 people, mostly family and close friends. The venues are much more intimate, frequently being held in back yards and homes. The biggest difference, the price. A standard wedding costs on average $39,000, while a micro wedding could come out under $1,000. Nicole was supposed to be married in July. As the date grew closer, crowd and dining restrictions made her change her plans. I started thinking what else can we do? That was a micro wedding. We felt so relieved after we got married and that we did do the micro wedding. The stress and not knowing what to do kind of all went away. I just think the micro wedding was the best decision. Reporter: As a fourth generation member of a family-owned super market chain, Nicole re-imagined how the business could help couples like her and her fiance whose wedding plans were impacted by the pandemic. She created grace's garden custom events. I wanted to offer this to other couples going through the same thing. I got everything from food town. I got my wedding cake. I got food to get ready. I got all my florals. I was like we have to do this micro wedding package. Reporter: Nicole building an option for couples including flowers, drinks, food and cake. What separates us from a wedding venue is just the convenience and you don't have to worry about doing this all yourself. We're essential in this pandemic and we can help you get married. Reporter: Now happily married Nicole says the best advice she can give is move forward with your wedding, even if you have to make it micro. We feel bad for our friend Eva pilgrim here because she had to delay her micro wedding. It was already micro. We brought Eva a cake and some of the essentials. I cut all the layers. How is the cake coming along? It's good. I've got better at cake cutting. This is my second cake in like a month. You'll be ready for your micro wedding, whenever that happens. Probably not. Don't give any to janai. Remember the time she ate all the hot dogs? Didn't she eat eight hot dogs in one day?
