Are you having a short engagement. I like working on these weddings, especially if the bride and groom are doing it themselves, because I am astounded by what can be pulled together in such a short space of time. There is only so much you can do, so with a short engagement you can be sure your guests will not be expecting an exact, meticulously planned, event with attention to fine detail- so don't try to compete with those who have spent 2 years planning (unless you have a wedding planner to do it for you). People do love something simple. A wedding like this has it's own charm and are as memorable as the huge, fussy events. remember, it's all about you and your partner. That is the most important thing to remember.
