Millennials and Weddings, and why we love them
Millennials are the among the most criticized of generations today. They however are the next generation to be married. So one wonders, what is their view of marriage in today’s world? Let’s find out.
Firstly, millennials are more into weddings as an experience. They notice more the décor, food, drinks, dancing, dress and entertainment. It’s like putting together a great show for the people to enjoy. But for millennial guests, pay more attention to the food. They want to enjoy it as if going to their favorite restaurant or food truck.
It’s better to know who the audience of the wedding is. Some may dislike certain ceremonial embellishments more than others. Some may not be comfortable with a Protestant instead of a Catholic weddings. Weddings traditions from Baguio may differ from those in Quezon, so be aware in case you have guests coming from a certain province.
When looking at the ceremony details, millennials care most about the bride’s dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, her entrance, the décor, the venue, and how the groom reacts. On what they look for most in the reception, it’s the food, music, décor, bar drinks (if available), dances, entertainment and venue. They are less likely to be concerned about the groom’s costume, escort cards, the officiator, venue amenities and bouquet or garter toss.
However, millennials are probably more accepting than older generations of weddings done on a budget. Meaning, it’s obvious that you chose to cut costs on things, but these didn’t turn out bad. This goes the same for gifts. It’s understandable given the situation of society today. It’s all about knowing who the audience going to the wedding is. But let it be all about pleasing them; it’s all about making sure they can more easily join you in celebrating this important milestone of your life.
