THE ORIGINAL AND THE BEST!
Wee in Scots is an adjective that means little, tiny, minute, mini, undersized, bijou, itsy-bitsy, half-pint and dinky according to the Oxford English Dictionary.
The Crear definition of a Wee Wedding is up to six at the entire wedding. Wee Weddings are for you and up to four guests.
We completely understand that while you originally intended a secret elopement keeping it WEE, if the secret gets out, the guest list of family and friends can grow. Hence, we also offer Small and Big Weddings at Crear.
