traditional Japanese wedding

Someone suggested I ask about this here. *waves hello* Nice comm.

I'm looking for some information for a fanfic I'm writing. What would a typical (commoner, not upper class) wedding have been like in feudal era Japan? Would it have been a big deal, large gathering & celebration sort of thing? If so, was the ceremony itself a big deal? Or was the fuss saved for a feast/party situation afterwards? Who would attend? Would guests typically bring gifts for the couple? Any information about what a traditional ceremony entailed would be a big help, too.
