What is a Micro Wedding?

Have you ever dreamed of a wedding in a beautiful, convenient location with wedding pictures overlooking the Duluth waters of Lake Superior, the gorgeous Ariel Lift Bridge, and boats going by to be followed by gourmet food, dessert, and spending precious time with your closest friends and family?  Those dreams can come true and even be a fraction of the cost with a micro wedding.

The national average cost of a wedding is $38,000.   In Minnesota, the average cost is estimated at over $20,000.    Exclusive Events now offers an alternative for only $2,750 with micro weddings (also called pop up weddings).  This alternative is a mix between a wedding at the courthouse or local chapel and a large wedding at a large venue.

A micro wedding in Duluth is exactly what it sounds like.  It is a smaller and shortened version of a wedding.  These stress free weddings consist of a ceremony in a beautiful location followed by a reception with appetizers, dessert, a cash bar, and spending 2 hours with up to 50 of your closest friends and family.   The best part of it all?  Everything is taken care of!  It is a stress free and all inclusive affair!  A photographer, music, an officiant, decor, and the little details are all included to make sure your day is exactly what you hoped it would be and more!

Micro Weddings are great options for:  Couples who want a simple and elegant wedding, Vow Renewal, Elopement, Destination Wedding
