……if you just decided to get married in four days??? Having special music? Flowers? Photography?
We just decided to get married on Sunday so I need to throw together something special for us. So far I picked out a favorite spot by the harbor, bought a gorgeous winter white wool coat, made reservations at a great restaurant to celebrate after, and asked my sister/MOH to join us (and bring her camera). Should I bring music…..write my vows (or save them for our family wedding in May)…..buy a small bouquet….do something special with my hair? I want to make it special but not go overboard since we’re doing a big wedding in four months (and a church blessing in July).

you know, this is a great question…I think Id say photography. You want the great photos in May, but this is the ACTUAL marriage – you want that documented. No matter how many or few people will be there, that is the moment you become husband and wife – you dont want to regret not having some wonderful photos of that moment. Id also write some beautiful vows to share between the two of you to make it extra special. How fun! Cant wait to hear how it goes!

wow! fun 🙂 I would say to get a good photographer for a couple of hours, and make sure the restaurant you go to has decent accoustics, comfy family seating, and good food. Other than that (and your cute winter wedding coat!) i think you’d be all set! Keep us POSTED!

I second the photography. Just like when you have the family wedding in May, so much will be going on in the day on Sunday that great photos will bring you back to the moment years from now.

I completely second @kellyv’s statement. You want to be able to remember that events because its the moment you became husband and wife.

Photography, to show everyone how it went and just to document how special it was!
Also, start writing your vows perhaps? And you could bring music, definitely… I have many good friends who play instruments so I’d probably ask one of them if I were in your position. Do you know anyone who plays some beautiful music?
I’d also get the flowers. You never feel like a bride without a bouquet, right? And don’t forget rings or an officiant! Hehe, but i’m sure you have that covered.
Good luck and I love it!!! Congrats!

I think the photography and really heart felt vows is all I’d need. This sounds like such an amazing idea. Its going to be so special!

Photography and vows would be my first priorities! That is SO exciting!

Photography and the outfits would be the priorities for me 🙂
Because it’s winter, this is the slowest time for weddings, and I’m sure if you found a photographer that was available, they would offer you a big discount. You would probably only need them for a few hours, too, just for some quick portraits of you and the family, and then quickly to document the ceremony.
I would just run to the grocery store and get some red roses or something and make the bouquets/bouts yourself.
I would also get your hair done, but maybe just a nice blow-out or a half up-do.
Good luck and congratulations!
