We want a small, intimate wedding with just close friends and family. One idea we've had is to have a destination wedding at my Uncle and Aunt's ranch, which is just east of Napa/Sonoma. They've had plenty of parties at their house, and it would be ideal for a small wedding.

I do not want a typical wedding dress. I want something comfortable and casual, but feminine. I'd like something with a vintage-y look to it, and have been drawn to shorter, shift style dresses (I even saw one at TJ Maxx for $40).
I wouldn't mind a long maxi dress, either.
We likely won't register for gifts, since we already have everything we need. Instead, we might use a travel registry site to register for portions of our honeymoon. Our top pick for a destination is Costa Rica.
Other than that, we haven't a clue! We both want to be equally involved in the planning process so our wedding day is equally special to both of us. Honestly, we both don't care all that much about the details. We just want to celebrate with each other and the people we love.
However, any advice, tips, recommendations, etc. are gladly welcomed! Is there anything we need to know right off the bat? What was your favorite part of the wedding planning process?
