A Small Formal Wedding with all the Bells and Whistles.

A Minimony is small and formal social gathering or cocktail party with a wedding. And possibly a few popular reception photo op activities worked in (i.e. first dance / group dance, toasts in the round, and cake cutting). In addition to local wines and micro-brews, the food usually includes charcuterie boards, assorted finger foods and set appetizers.

"A Minimony is an Intimate Wedding Celebration."

As a couple planning your wedding. Always remember it's your day. Celebrate the way you wish. There is nothing wrong with having, a small private wedding and reception. A Minimony is not meant to be a casual elopement wedding. It is a formal gatherings; both in style and creative flare. Good food. Good drink. And socializing with your family and your closest friends.


As you probably know, musical artist Ariana Grande had a Minimony in 2021 and people talked about it for weeks. So, this small thing can be a big deal.
