Personalize your day doing exactly what you want to do, rent a cottage, go for a canoe trip, bring your dog, pop champagne, write letters or vows to one another the options are endless. Think of your favourite things together as a couple, and find ways to incorporate them into your day. B & R started their day with a first look.

Make it intimate and all about your love. B & R invited 15 of their most near and dear loved ones and included their sweet puppy during their ceremony too!
3. Plan it as you would have a big wedding.
When your guest list is smaller, your budget can go further. Now that financially things are smaller do go big on some of your favourite details.
