MangoLover4Life:  Oct 2014? Have you started planning?

The way you do it is cut stuff that doesnt matter. You, him, officiant and a witness is all you need. The rest is fluff. If you do have other guests, you need to be gracious, but remember people used to have cake and punch receptions.

MangoLover4Life:  so you have a wedding in 6 weeks and you haven’t started planning? That makes it really simple- Courthouse and a lunch at a local restaurant with a banquet or semi private room. Hire a photographer for a few hours (do it on a weekday and maybe get better rates or a Sunday). Buy a nice dress and nice suit for him. if you want a simple veil, etsy has $25 birdcage veil. The day before your wedding, go to the local grocery store and buy flowers, look online about to DIY your boquet or contact a florist for a 4″-6″ small boquet and boutenier, if you even want flowers. 

If you want a cake, ask the resaurant if you can bring one in. Contact a bakery about a single layer 6″-10″ depending on the number of people. Have a friend-family be responsible for picking it up. If you want a cake topper, etsy has some cute inexpensive ones. 

You can get simple invites at Michaels you put through the printer or just send out an evite. 

PS- some photographers specialize in elopements. Even thought yours isnt and will have a few other people, the feel of the day will be the same.

MangoLover4Life:  is this a sign you are having cold feet for the marriage or just the pomp and circumstance around the ceremony. If you just dont want the hassle, give yourself permission to “elope” whether at the courthouse or at the church. No reason you cant just have it be you, FI, witness, officiant.
