I like the idea of a small wedding, that way you can spend your money on the best quality for very few people, and be able to afford the things that are most important to you.

Just make sure  your Fiance is ok with most of his family not being able to come.

@Mrs.Ramos2b:  I think if you and your Fiance are both happy with it, I think it is great!!   There are some beautiful parks in your area that you could have set up!!  If you want help finding one PM me!  (I know the place for the big wedding you spoke of is), but if you both are happy with having a small intimate wedding, it would be perfect for you! 🙂

I did this, but took it a little more extreme than you might. We have huge families and knew that if anyone was allowed to come, it would become a 200 person affaird that we just couldn’t afford. And while we love our families, they tend to steamroll and make everything about them, which I didn’t want to deal with on a day where I make basically the biggest committment of my life.  

So, instead, we  had a wedding with 2, me and him. (And 2 photographers.) It was beautiful and simple and the best day of my life. We planned vacation to New York City, and got married by a Fanciscan monk in Central Park. We ordered a small, beautiful cake from tribeca for $90 dollars (including delivery). We took pictures around the city that I love, and later that night I changed into a short,  more casual lacy dress (I bought at Kohls when I stopped to kill time on the way to a dress fitting) and we went out to dinner at a nice restaurant with great views of the city. Having a baby wedding can be done, and be wonderful and feel super special. It’s not for everyone, but if it is what you want, don’t let anyone rope you into having a huge party.

Full disclosure, we are having a bigger “first anniversary” party with family and friends. I sometimes think they see it as part of our wedding, but I’m pretty adamant that its not. I’m happy to throw this party for my family, but I already got married, and would do it the same way over again if I had to. (Even if it meant not throwing the party this year.)

Just for fun, I’m adding some pictures from my wedding day, and I think you’ll see that we were just as happy as anyone else with a big wedding.
