It is your day and you should have the mood you want! Go with your heart’s desire, but do your homework when selecting a photographer. This is one category in which I do not recommend that you cut corners. An experienced professional photographer will have no difficulty shooting your wedding in low lighting. A professional will also bring additional lighting if needed. When shopping for the right photographer make sure to ask to see samples of weddings they have shot in low-lighting situations. Remember that at the end of your big day what will remain are the pictures. Choose wisely.
I find that when I am unmotivated to do anything, especially working out, if I know that someone else’s time is also involved I tend to be more accountable. So, get your butt off the couch and find a workout buddy; someone who can provide encouragement, motivation and accountability. Your fiancé is a great first choice. If there is no one that is willing to commit to working out with you then hire a personal trainer; for that matter you could do both. A fitness professional will help you customize a personalized exercise plan that will realistically get you to your goal in the time you have. Get moving!
I think that you could be disappointed in the turnout at your ceremony. Given a choice, I believe more people would show up for your reception than for your ceremony. Unless you are having a destination wedding or your wedding is going to be a weekend full of planned activities, I would stay with one day. If not, I think you should try to find a location(s) that will be available on the same day.
