In wedding planning, your decisions depend on how many guests you plan to invite. Before anything else, the important first step would be to decide on the size of the wedding. Moreover, it’s important to distinguish whether to go with a large celebration or a quaint affair as either will have its own pros and cons.
That is to say, there are no wrong decisions. A wedding doesn’t have to be grandiose to be beautiful. When planned right, intimate weddings are less stressful and they can be stunning too!
Micro weddings are trending especially during the lockdown (COVID-19). If you need more convincing, we’ve listed down the top 10 Toronto spots for micro wedding ceremonies & receptions.
