While many of our brides have had to reschedule their initial wedding plans, many have opted to honor their original wedding date with a “minimony”.

A minimony, a mini ceremony, is a way to still celebrate your special day while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Having a minimony is a great way to get together a handful of your immediate family and closest friends to celebrate your love.

Scheduling a minimony does not have to replace your big wedding plans. Our event planners are still here to make your big wedding day dreams come true, once you are ready, but in the meantime, here are some tips for pulling off the perfect minimony.
