trust me summer 2011 is not that far away… my first 6 months of my engagement flew by now im in a panic πŸ™‚

but it sounds like you know what you want. if you want something small and intimate, then do something small and intimate – its perfectly acceptable to do a family only small ceremony and have a large reception for everyone to join in with you.

if it helps i have a huuuge family and i have always dreamed of a small wedding – so i am doing a mix – i picked a venue with a capacity of 120 so i know it wont be more than that, and having my reception at a nearby ballroom so if push comes to shove and i need to expand the reception i can (but im not gonna!!!!)

start with the feel of your wedding and how you want it to feel to you and your FH and guests, check out the wedding magazines out there – i recommend real simple weddings – its got everything in there to help you out including checklists! and it will come to you. just start with the feeling, then either pick your venues next or your dress, one will dictate the other!

good luck and dont panic πŸ™‚

oh and before you start picking venues or falling in love with dresses – GET YOUR BUDGET. πŸ™‚ find out who is paying for what and how much they are willing to pay. makes a HUGE difference in what you end up doing…

I’m doing the same, having a “smaller” ceremony with about 160-180 people, then inviting most of our friends to just the reception to party the night away with us. Most understand that we’re keeping it just closer friends and family, and that’s what’s important. It’s your day, and you should be able to celebrate it exactly the way you want to πŸ™‚
