A trend making your vows possible.
An Ever Changing World
There is one thing we can always say for certain, times will change. With these changing tides, we learn to adapt and to create a new normal that may be different but can be just as perfect. These days, couples are being forced to make a difficult decision about whether or not to cancel or postpone their weddings. On top of this, we can not see into the future as to when tides will change again. All this uncertainty around a day that is held so dear to our hearts can be extremely stressful, but don’t lose hope. A growing trend may be the answer to your prayers: intimate, micro, and mini weddings.
Intimate, micro, and mini weddings, have been pushed into the spotlight by our current situation. Couples are swapping out their large wedding day celebrations, in favor of smaller more intimate affairs. With this trend, along with current technology, we are able to celebrate with loved ones both near and far. Not only does this smaller format keep loved ones safe, but it can also provide a budget friendly wedding during difficult times. If you don’t want to wait to say “I Do”, you can adapt your wedding to an intimate, micro, or mini affair.
If you still want that large wedding day, you can always have an epic celebration another year to rejoice in a love that stands the test of time.
To help with these last minute changes, Blissful Events has teamed up with outstanding professional wedding vendors to ease the process of adjusting your big day. Our team will be on your side with positive spirits as we help you adapt to a new normal and a new vision for your wedding.
Intimate, Micro and Mini Weddings
Blissful Events by Amanda will be offering planning services for intimate, micro, and mini affairs. Compared to most traditional weddings, these wedding are shorter in timeframe and smaller in guest count.
All three affairs will include a personal photo session along with the timeless traditions of a short ceremony, first dance, parents’ dances, toast, and the cake cutting. For the intimate affair, guests will enjoy a dinner among family. The micro wedding will feature a cocktail reception in place of a dinner service. The mini wedding will feature both a cocktail hour with light hors d’oeuvres and a dinner service. To conclude the evening, there will be a cake cutting, and guests will satisfy their sweet tooth with their own cake-lets. An intimate affair consists of up 10 guests, while micro and mini weddings allow up to 50 attendees.
To enable quick adjustments in a short timeframe, we offer three wedding packages. The basic package for each wedding type includes:
This is your wedding day! Our goal is to make sure your day is unique and personal to you. Share your color scheme or any special details you would like to include, and we will be happy to make it happen. Choose from our many upgrades including: RSVPs collected by Blissful Events, gift packages sent to virtual guests, and videographer to record your special day. Host your wedding in your family or friend’s backyard, or have it at one of our partner venues. You choose what is best for you. Blissful Events, in addition to a team of vendors, take care of the details, and you get married.
Blissful Events by Amanda is ecstatic to announce a team of local vendors who are partnering with us to make your transition to an intimate, micro or mini wedding a breeze. Kaitlin Hall will design updated invites. 220 South Hair Studio stylists will make you ready for some picture perfect moments.

Special Guest App will help find the perfect musicians or DJ to set the mood. Gabrielle Bravyak Photography or Jessica Mann Photography will be sure to capture every memory. To ensure your guests attending virtually will be able to share in your special moment, we have Socialocca or 570 Events at your service. After the ceremony, enjoy a delicious dinner or brunch from Grico’s Catering. Conclude your celebration with this decadent cake-let that Jane’s Sugar Magnolia will recreate. Be on the lookout as we announce the venues and additional partner vendors who will be teaming up with us in the near future.
Making Virtual Personal
More often than not, the idea of streaming your wedding to friends and family unable to attend feels cold, distant, and impersonal. We know you would rather have your loved ones sharing in the festivities in person. However, our virtual streaming professionals are here to help make your guests know they are still an important part of your day. Guests will be able to chime in as the celebration is occurring. Send a gift ahead of time to virtual guests with items they will be able to enjoy during the celebration including a bottle of champagne or a sweet treat. There are so many wonderful ways to make your virtual guests feel included.
CDC and State Government
We want you to be able to say your vows as soon as possible, but we also want to keep all our clients and their loved ones safe. To ensure this, we will be complying with all CDC and State guidelines on when we may open, how to provide a safe experience and a clean environment. As of now, Luzerne and Lackawanna counties are in the red zone of the reopening phase. The good news is once a county moves to the yellow zone, weddings of 25 attendees and under may be held. Whatever may come, we will be here for our clients throughout this ride. We will adjust as the state of matters change, while allowing our clients the ability to know everything is under control.
Keep on the lookout for more blogs and social media posts about the imitate, micro, and mini weddings. I will be posting soon regarding what each of my amazing partners will offer.
Sometimes an imperfect situation can create something perfect. Stay positive and always be kind. We will all get through this time together.
