Save the Date with a Minimony!


Couples are changing the way they say "I do." They are saving the date with an intimate minimony in a romantic wedding venue, and hosting the sequel wedding celebration of their dreams with a big bash. This trend creates opportunity for couples to celebrate in two very unique ways, and makes the dream wedding possible.

What is a Minimony?

A minimony is an intimate wedding trend for a climate that brings fewer people beneath one roof. A minimony is an opportunity for couples to save the date in a unique way, and experience the luxurious wedding venue with elaborate decor. Minimonies usually consist of about 20 to 50 guests. This brings parents, immediate family and a few close friends in attendance. Do not confuse the size of the ceremony with the size of the experience. The wedding venue spares nothing in the process of creating a unique experience as part of an extravagant sequel dream wedding. Save the date and say "I do" in a ballroom designed by your imagination.

What is Included in a Minimony?

A Minimony at Crystal Ballroom on the Lake includes an intimate wedding experience with up to 50 guests. Events are held in one fully designed ballroom for a two hour reservation. A bartender, a room attendant, and a banquet manager are staffed to service your event. Connect with our preferred vendors to create the mini celebration to match.

Vendors at Your Minimony

Crystal Ballroom on the Lake has an open vendor policy, welcoming your officiant, photographer, caterer to supply your hors d’oeuvres, and a baker to supply your cake or cupcakes. Live stream your event with a live stream service to bring the intimate experience to those that couldn't make it.

Add a Sequel Wedding to Your Minimony

A sequel wedding is a second wedding celebration at the wedding venue that occurs at a date after the minimony. It brings a much larger guest list and provides the complete festive dream wedding experience. The succession of a sequel wedding celebrates on a much larger scale, just the way you planned it. Having more than one ceremony and celebration at the wedding venue is not a new concept. Couples have been having sequel weddings to create a unique wedding ceremony for cultural and personal reasons for many years. Some cultures hold a series of celebrations revolving around the wedding ceremony. Others choose to create an intimate experience with a minimony prior to hosting the big event at the wedding venue. Regardless of the reasons or the ways you say "I do," the sequel wedding trend is catching on.
