A Micro Wedding in the Grand Strand, SC

Over the last several months, the need for much smaller get-togethers has increased at a dramatic pace, and weddings are no different. Elopements, “minimonies,” and micro weddings have skyrocketed in popularity as more newly engaged couples opt for significantly fewer guests. The silver lining is that Inlet Sports Lodge, in Murrells Inlet, has the ideal Myrtle Beach wedding venue for an intimate gathering and on-site catering, and of course, lodging. We have a knack for celebrations and are poised to give you the special day you deserve, no matter how many people are on your guest list. Remember, just because you and your significant other have chosen to forgo a large celebration doesn’t mean you can’t have a momentous occasion. In the meantime, as you sift through the options, we’ll share some valuable information regarding micro weddings and some factors to consider for your special day.

Myrtle Beach Wedding on the SC Grand Strand

Don’t let the size of your wedding dictate how much joy you share with each other and your guests. Understandably, you’re probably not the only person wondering, “What the heck a micro wedding?” As they’ve only recently come into the limelight. Couples around the world have drastically amended their nuptials, especially those planning a large ceremony. At its core, a micro wedding is a scaled-down version of a bigger celebration, usually with less than 30 guests. Although not all micro weddings are elopements, most elopements can be considered a micro wedding. The main distinction being that micro weddings follow traditional ceremonial guidelines, whereas elopements have little to no parameters to follow. Another option that has come about is a “minimony,” which is a preliminary celebration taking place before the official wedding. No matter your choice, Inlet Sports Lodge is here to lend a helping hand.
