What are some ways to plan a private wedding ceremony?

Cupid’s Advice:

You’re ready to marry the person you love, but you’re not sure if you want to make a huge event out of it. Some people prefer a quieter, intimate ceremony. How do you go about planning something smaller without hurting anyone’s feelings? Cupid is here to help:

1. Tell family and close friends: Only tell your loved ones about your plan to exchange vows. You won’t hurt anyone’s feelings if you keep details about your upcoming nuptials relatively quiet. Let your family and friends know you won’t be changing your mind about the simplicity of your wedding, and you would appreciate it if they kept all ceremony and reception details to themselves.

2. Location: Choose a location that would be appropriate for a small wedding. Look at places such as gardens, public parks and farms. If you already have a venue picked out, make sure it’s something your partner likes as well.
