paxtonbd:  Congratulations!! Great photos.  What dress is that?  Did it come with the sash, or did you get the sash seperately?  Thank you!

paxtonbd:  Awesome! We’re doing the same thing, surprising our families on Christmas Day! They don’t even know were engaged. I’m kind of like you, I just wanted to do my own thing without any input or emotions from other people. 

As PPs have asked, I’m interested in how you pulled it off. What traditional wedding elements did you keep, and how did you hide them?

We are planning a similar idea. I’m glad to hear yours went so well! Our reasons are pretty similar as well. I hate all of the emotions, nonsense and buildup that goes with a traditional wedding. 

What cover story did you use to get everyone together?

What about people from out of town?

SithLady:  we aren’t telling people we’re engaged either! I feel better knowing there are other people doing the same thing. It’s challenging keeping the secret, but I just have to remind myself of our reasons for doing it this way and I know we’re making the right choice.

robin2015:  Yeah, it’s hard keeping the secret from my mom. We are just doing family at the ceremony, so most of our friends know about it, so we don’t have to keep the secret from everyone. I know our families are going to be so surprised and happy. FI is actually going to propose before the pastor shows up, so they’ll think that is the surprise and then we’ll surprise them again with a wedding. 

The toughest part for us is that it’s going to be at FI’s parent’s house, so we will have to hide all of our “wedding” stuff and bring it there with us without anyone getting nosey. I’m thinking we will be able to disguise a box of wedding stuff as a present so that nobody will peek at it or question us bringing a box.

What us your cover event so that everyone is there? We’re doing an Easter dinner (so I have months to go!) 

Good luck with your plan! It should be really great!
