I am recently engaged and have so many questions. I want to start off by saying I am a really shy and private person. I have never wanted a huge wedding. I hate being the center of attention. I found a company that will marry us in a park near out house. It's a beautiful park! I would like for it to just be my little family ( my fiancé myself and our daughters) my parents would like for us to have a party after. Which is fine I know they want to be apart of this moment in my life. Should I do the party the same day or maybe the day after. How should I word the invitations for the party? Should I just announce our wedding and we would like for everyone to celebrate with us? Also my sister is telling me I need to register but I wasn't sure about that since I'm not having a big wedding or even having anyone other than my children. Also at the party should I have a cake? Like a wedding cake? I have never been married before and have no clue how to plan any of this. Please help! I do want my family to celebrate with us but like I said I want my actual wedding to be private. I like the idea of getting married in the park. I know it's pretty much like getting married at the courthouse but at the same time it's not.
