If you’re an introvert, the thought of being the center of attention all day long can be a bit daunting. You might be worried about how you’ll survive your wedding day with all the people and noise. But don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to make sure your wedding day is everything you’ve ever wanted it to be. Our guide for a wedding for introverts will help you stay calm in the chaos. The key is staying true to yourself and really asking yourself what you want out of your wedding day.
While we specialize in authentic ceremony and intimate weddings, we realized we are the perfect option for more introverted brides or grooms. We’ve created a list of options that can get your wheels turning about what your wedding day can actually look like!
1. Elope Instead! (A Wedding for Introverts)
We may be biased, because elopements our are FAVORITE. But hear us out! There’s nothing wrong with being an introvert – and you deserve a wedding day that makes you the happiest you’ve ever been! Instead of fighting the part of you that feels a little afraid of what your wedding day will bring, you can work with it.
Eloping might be the perfect solution for you! You can still have all the joy and love of a traditional wedding, without all the stress and anxiety. This day is about you, and eloping will let you truly enjoy every minute of it. Just imagine… saying your vows in front of a beautiful waterfall or on a mountainside at sunset. With eloping, the sky is the limit – and you can create the wedding day of your dreams. Check out our Blog on Adventure Elopements to learn more! Elopements are the perfect wedding for introverts!
2. Micro-Weddings (A Wedding for Introverts)
Another option is to have a smaller, more intimate wedding. This way, you won’t feel overwhelmed by a large crowd, and you can focus on enjoying the company of your closest family and friends. You could have a micro-wedding with just your immediate family and closest friends. This intimate setting will allow you to really savor every moment and truly enjoy your wedding day.
We have a “hybrid” option between a Micro-Wedding that is accessible for everyone where we can do an intimate ceremony and an Adventure Elopement. After the ceremony, first dance, and celebratory group photos, we take you both on an adventure to get those epic photos you’ve been dreaming of. You get to be full of joy and love with your closest squad while also having time to simply enjoy each other. This Intimate wedding experience may be the perfect style of wedding for the introverted bride.
3. Create Space Throughout the Day
Create space throughout the entire day for you to breathe, relax, and enjoy your wedding day. This could look like a morning yoga sesh, a private sound bath, or simply a moment by yourself with some warm tea in hand. We offer bridal yoga, couples yoga, private sound healing, and intentional ceremonies that make you feel grounded. This is really important not only to soak up every minute of your wedding day, but to also give yourself the space and time you need to feel nourished.
When we plan intimate weddings and elopements, we create a timeline for the day that allows for space. This is in contrast to the typical wedding timeline where everyone is rushed and events are pushed close together. The last thing we want is you rushing from one thing to the next. As a result, you can have the relaxed and joyous wedding day you’ve always dreamed of. So whether you choose to work with us or not, go ahead and take your time, savor each moment, and enjoy your intimate wedding day to the fullest.
4. Hire Professionals
One of the most important things you can do is hire professionals who are excellent at what they do. Your wedding vendors can make or break your day. Your Wedding Planner, Hair and Makeup Artist, your Officiant, your DJ, your Photographer and Videographer- anyone who is involved in your day needs to be of the highest vibe and performing at their very best.
We’ve gotten so many calls from brides needing an officiant the last minute because they didn’t go with a professional at first. When it comes to your wedding, you need vendors who are going to understand your vision and execute it flawlessly. You want people on your team you can trust. That’s why we only work with the best of the best. This is honestly why we began our All-Inclusive Elopements and Intimate Wedding Experiences in the first place. We want everyone’s vendor team to be nourishing, uplifting, and truly phenomenal.
IF YOU (or your fiancé) STILL WANTS A LARGER WEDDING
It is your day! And we are happy for you both whatever route you choose! Our biggest suggestion is hiring an officiant and wedding planner who will keep you grounded throughout the day. Your ceremony is the most intimate and emotional part of the day. If you have an officiant who is grounding, peaceful, and you can trust- then your wedding day is full of ease. If the ceremony is full of things that don’t align with you, then it’s not really YOUR ceremony. The right wedding officiant will guide you back to who you are as a couple.
The goal of Let’s Knot and Say We Did is to bring out the most authentic version of you. We do that by building relationships with each couple and truly becoming friends. Most of the ceremonies that Rich officiates, the groom gets asked if he’s his brother, cousin, or lifelong friend. We form these deep connections by truly caring about the people we serve.
Whatever you do, make sure your wedding day is about what makes you happy. Whether that means a big celebration or a small, intimate gathering, the most important thing is that you enjoy every minute of it!
