Dear Liz, 
I have a burning question! My  fiancé and I have been engaged for over a year. We are so ready to get married but we just don't have the financial means right now. So a friend of mine who is ordained said that she would marry us. This is a great option for us due to our lack of finances and our lack of patience. I've never heard of this type of wedding until my friend said that she could do it. I'm a little embarrassed that I am so excited to get married but have absolutely no idea about how this process might work. What I do know is that she will be signing papers for us but what I don't know is with those types of ceremonies is it typical for the couple to exchange vows or to even call it a ceremony or is it simply just signing papers? Please help me.!!!!

Signed,

Dear Liz, 
We got engaged on New Year's Eve. When I told people at work last week, everyone was really nice, but they kept asking me if we'd picked a wedding date and venue, yet. I guess it's a standard question, but I keep thinking that we just got engaged, do we have to start planning the wedding right away? I said this to the last person who asked, and she told me that I should start thinking about it, because all the best places get booked up quickly. I didn't want to spend forever planning my wedding, my sister took over a year to plan hers and it looked and felt like hell. But, I thought I'd have more than a couple of weeks! Now I'm panicking that I'm not going to find a good place. Do I really have to start looking now?

Signed,
