You will need to know that the minister will be able to fit you into his or her schedule, and that there is not another function going on at the church or venue. Invitations should be sent out well in advance, so that your guests do not get booked up and be unable to attend. For a small wedding this is quite important, as your guests are somewhat special.
Make sure your budget will be enough: even a small wedding needs a little money and it is good to estimate the costs before you start buying and arranging things. Make a checklist so that you can estimate better.

With these few points you can start to plan your small but intimate wedding and enjoy your memories for years to come.
