So, me and my fiancé are getting married on our 5th anniversary, this year… With only my Parents and nanna present! (we’re getting dresed accordingly for it though)
The ceremony it’s self is at 2:30 so we’ll be getting married, then i guess a meal with just the 5 of us. I’ve a big family though so I’m undecided if we should have a big family meal?! but the problem then is how do I get everyone together without telling them that we’re getting married as we kinda want to just surprise everyone as it’s a Monday so people will have work and what not…(not sure how we’re going to spill the beans yet either… I want to do something a bit quirky and not just ‘we got married’ on facebook lol) and it can’t last too long as any of you with big family’s will know it could be a late evening lol. We’re flying out the morning after so we’re staying in a hotel close to the airport! So we’ll have to head off earliesh to check in As it’s a 2 hour drive away and we’ll have champagne waiting 😉
Any suggestions how to make the day a bit more special and memorable? I wanted to let of loads of lanters but my luck it’ll be raining no doubt It’s a late November wedding 🙂 I thought about a photographer but fiancé hate his photo taken and geta stressed out so he’ll not smile on them

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.

His dad died a while ago… And his Mam… Well she moved to thailand and said that she doesnt like England enough to come over for the day and she apparently can’t really afford to either so she’d rather we sent her lots of photos instead.. The less said about her the bette! Ha. But that’s another story, families huh! X

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.
