This is both of our second marriages and we were wanting to have a ceremony with just our 5 girls. Originally we planned to have it on a beach in June, but my ex managed to sabatoge that (he heard what I was doing and now he is gettting married around the same time on the beach with the colors I chose, my oldest snitched). So now we have decided to have it in May at his mom's ranch. I am not sure where to begin with planning. My other issue is that our friends are wanting to come and I don't know what to say to them? Does anyone have any suggestions and ideas for an outdoor private ceremony? Do you typically have music, or not? Help!!!!
