Weddings are not usually performed in synagogues. My European-born parents were married in America, in the early 1930's, in my mother's brother's living room, on a Friday afternoon. My wife's grandparents were married in the 1920's in Jerusalem in the bride's parent's home, also on a Friday afternoon and they invited guests for coffee and cake on Saturday night. In both cases the wedding celebration was also the traditional Shabbat meal for the family. Most people did not have much money and did not invite the whole world to the wedding. All you needed was a minyan (a quorum of 10 men).
