Organise an “Engagement Party” (instead of reception) and show pictures or video from the ceremony as the suprise.. Include your booking for the hotel and flights so everyone knows your going to the hotel etc.. have that play then you and your DH enter in your wedding attire.. 🙂

Why are his parents not invited? They will be upset if they find out only your parents were invited.

This is hard to answer because I think everyone’s idea of “special’ is different. My FI and I are getting married with just the two of us and our dog. We will have a photographer. We”re getting married in a national park, then going back to our hotel where there’s a historic bar. We’ll have a cocktail, then a fancy dinner, then cake and champagne in our room. It’s special because at the end of the day, we’re married. We’ll call our families a day or two after and send announcements and some photos later. <br /><br />PS We aren’t particularly romantic so…

Perhaps to help make it special you could add in something that pertains to the two of you as a couple. For our elopement we are exchanging pink roses and that is because the first day we met my FI presented me with a single pink rose. It’s very symbolic of us.
