What Does Micro Mean? At what point does your regular old wedding qualify as a “micro” wedding? Kristin Reisenauer, owner and lead planner at Natural Elegance Events, says the dividing line is 75 guests. But she’s worked on much smaller weddings too, including one with just 18 people. MilMag’s own digital editor Allison Garcia is currently planning a 12-guest wedding. Smaller than that, and you might want to consider an elopement.
