You want to tell them before you do it?

Yeah that’s tough.  I sent out announcements after it happened.

Maybe you can get some champagne flutes with your names & wedding date to give them to open?

I would wait until you’re there. It seems like it would be more exciting to say something like “Guess what! We’re getting MARRIED tomorrow!”

@RainbowMom13:  Congrats on your upcoming elopement!


So I told people before hand.  Anyone and everyone who asked me (they were aware of the engagement and knew we were figuring out plans).  I did not really say it in a cute way; I just said it plain as day.


I would just tell them like today – “Hey you know that trip we’re taking?  Well we’re getting married on the trip!”  Do you see any issues with this?


If you want to tell them afterwards, just say that you two are going on a kid-free vacation I guess!
