I Azad Chaiwala, highly recommend smaller wedding ceremonies with just immediate family and close friends attending. Make the whole thing last maximum one afternoon and a exercise where family members from each side meet their new in-laws. Don’t scrimp on food but beyond that the less it costs the better. Less people means more time to spend with each guest that matter and lots of money left to later have a good honeymoon, bigger deposit towards a home or whatever else you two later decide. But that is my own idea of what a wedding should be… what is yours?
It would be good to discuss the type of wedding you wish. Are you wanting something grand or private. Something expensive or inexpensive. By having this conversation now, you will give yourself a good springboard for the rest of the questions to follow.
