    @jbro:  It sounds like we are having the same wedding! Family-only, around 20 people (we aren’t even including a lot of extended family) all because my Fiance is too shy and can’t do the big wedding. We initially planned a larger, more traditional wedding, but cancelled because it all became too much for him.

     Maybe show him some real weddings from http://www.intimateweddings.com to show him how a small wedding would look/feel, and that it’s not so scary. It is so hard for guys to visualize this stuff. Plus, the site got ME excited for our intimate wedding, because now I can see how wonderful and memorable small weddings can be. It’s a lot easier to create “atmosphere” for 20 people as opposed to 100.

    This might be a longshot, but my Fiance is walking down the aisle with our dog (who will stay up there with him). It makes him a lot more comfortable bc people will be like “ohmigod cute puppy!” as opposed to looking at him. Or maybe if he didnt have to wear a suit? Find out what it is that’s making him tick, and then see if you can find  a creative way to go around it.

    You can do this! I know how hard it is to plan with a shy groom. A lot of people have asked me if he was “sure”, because of how unexcited he is for the wedding. What they dont realize is the only thing he’s unsure about is having them there – I’m the only thing he IS sure about. Just remember that.
