We had a relatively small religious ceremony, funded on a (literal) shoestring budget. We were both trying to save up as much money as we could at the time (my husband was out of work and I was four and a half months pregnant), and we only had two months to plan it.
Luckily, my husband is really close with the pastor of the church, and (since my hubby was a church member), we were able to book the chapel for free, (we did give the pastor a $50 tip, just for doing us the favor on such short notice). My brother-in-law acted as sound mixer, the youth pastor was our photographer, the rest of the wedding party consisted of my younger sister and my husband's best friend, and we held the reception back at our house.
If given the chance to do it again, the only change I would make would be an actual honeymoon for the two of us. Since we were trying to save money I was only able to take a four-day weekend from work, (which was subsequently ruined when my dad landed in the hospital with bloodclots the next night).
