Micro Weddings

All Inclusive Micro Weddings – Starting at $6000

Limited Spots available in October and November 2019

You said, “Yes!” You’re incredibly excited to get married. You and your significant other dream of a beautifully decorated venue, professional invitations, lush florals, live music, stunning photographs and videography, a warm-hearted officiant, and a wedding planner who is always one step ahead of you. You want one of your most significant life events to be memorable, and yes, Instagram worthy! But, then…your love-filled hearts sink when you realize that you don’t have $30,000 in your hip pocket, the average cost for a standard wedding. And even then, you might have to cut some corners and nix live entertainment or a memorable wedding video. It’s truly both a financial and logistical burden for most, no matter how much you may try and cut corners.

This is why White Rabbit Events, together with a dream team of vendors who’ve been published in numerous editorials, including Wedding Bells and A Princess Inspired, have come up with a creative, eco-friendly, cost-sharing option for engaged couples who are on a budget, but do not wish to sacrifice the important, dream elements on their wish list. As an added bonus, our couples can sit back and relax, savouring the engagement process, because they don’t have to plan a thing, except perhaps a romantic honeymoon with all of the money they will have saved on their wedding and reception.

This is not your average ‘pop-up’ wedding. Yes, pop-up weddings have recently gained in popularity, and can be great for those who are looking for a unique ceremony venue for in and around 20 guests. But perhaps you want more… a heck of a lot more!

Who would micro weddings be suitable for?

Couples that:

  • would love to get married within the next three to six-months
  • are hoping for a wedding with traditional elements but a budget of $30,000 is outside of their financial comfort zone.
  • have a smaller guest count of 30 to 50 (Perfect for an intimate wedding with close family and friends, or a signing ceremony if eloping)
  • would appreciate not having to worry about any of the planning details other than inviting their guests with a provided invitation, and obtaining a marriage license

What is the cost?

Our comprehensive micro-wedding packages are $6,000. Additional food, cocktails, bouquets/boutonnieres may be purchased, outside of what is include in our standard package. Please contact info@whiterabbitevents.ca for a no obligation quote based on your unique requirements.

How is this pricing possible?

We source and secure premium venues with available short-term dates that might otherwise not be booked. As we will be hosting up to four weddings on the same day, many beautiful elements can be utilized by all, therefore we can pass along substantial savings to our couples. This ties into our commitment to minimize our ecological impact.
