Garine: Thank you so much for the generous complements! What do think the long-term impact of COVID will have on the wedding/event industry?

Margarita: I think that next two years the events will be smaller – but will jump right back up after 2022 and what does this mean for the future of the event industry? Pivoting to offer more creative ways of decorating and making an impact on events with the environment vs objects.

Garine: Especially with the summer coming around, we will see a lot more outdoor events being affected by environmental factors. Are there any exciting new projects you’d like to share?

Garine: That is extremely exciting to hear! Looking forward to seeing what’s to come.

Tips for rustic micro-weddings


What is a micro-wedding?

A micro-wedding is a wedding that is held with a smaller group of guests. Typically, with normal gatherings we see around 150-250 guests celebrating a couples wedding. Micro-weddings on the other hand generally have around 50 guests with family and close friends. They are also held for multiple different reasons. Prior to the pandemic, micro-weddings were a way for couples to celebrate in a more intimate way. Some couples choose to have a micro-wedding in order to save money. However, in the present day, this trend has become a must! Though this isn’t to say that micro-weddings are any sort of downgrade, they’re simply another way to hold future events (which includes birthdays and anniversaries).


Where would a micro-wedding be held?

Micro-weddings are generally held in a backyard, a restaurant, or something rustic and smaller. Totally depends on your theme! Though with the pandemic, venues and restaurants have created new options for smaller rooms and gatherings including even outdoor tents on the venue’s property.


How to plan the tablescape for a micro-wedding?

Now for the really exciting part! With micro-weddings, rustic themed weddings tend to be more of a trend. Having different size tables as well as different surfaces of said tables makes it important to choose a linen that will drape nicely and has multiple sizes to fit both small and large tables. A good option for this series would be a burlap style linen. Natural burlap, stone burlap and grey burlap are all gorgeous rustic style linen with matching napkins and runners as well. Rather than focus on a more expensive option of glass chargers, with a rustic micro-wedding, wooden chargers are the perfect way to go. Not only do wooden chargers look perfect with burlap linens and napkins, but they are also a much better decision financially. If you want to avoid being too matchy, still going with the burlap linen option, the weddings’ theme colour can be the napkin choice as well. White linen napkin as well as any polyester napkin looks stunning in this tablescape. A wonderful addition is an ivory or white sheer runner, creating a romantic mood. It covers the table from one end to another like a cloud. With a micro-wedding, the options are truly endless! Having more room on the table creates more opportunities for beautiful little touches and elevated decor. Simple silver or rose gold cutlery is a fantastic addition to elevate the tablescape as well.
