My fiance and I just got engaged on Christmas Eve. We have decided to have a short engagement, and get married sometime this summer (June - Aug). We aren't settled on a specific date yet, and are willing to chose a Friday or Sunday date depending on venue availability.
We are also going to limit our guest list to 50 ppl or so, in effort to save money. Just close family and friends.
Most venues that I have researched so far, have a 75person or more minimum. So, I am thinking that a restaurant would work for us too. Although, I would love some place that has a site for the ceremony too.
