My husband (then FI) woke me up on a Monday morning at 8am (I was off from a car accident and he took the day off to surprise me)
Him: “wanna get married this weekend?”
Me: *eyes barely open* “sure”
Him: “ok get up we have shit to do today”
Me: “Um okay”
….and then go out and get the rings, outfits, JOP, wedding license and flowers ordered that day, told everyone that night….the cake/food ordered the next day…picked up the rings, flowers, licence that Friday and married the next day in our livingroom with 24 family and friends?????? Anyone else?

We were not that extreme, but we were kinda spontaneous. We got engaged in a totally unplanned manner during a conversation about where we were seeing our relationship going.
Got my e-ring 3 days later, because we were going to my parents’ place for dinner and wanted a ring on my finger to share the news. On our way to dinner, went to the store, picked a ring and left the parking lot with it on my finger.
We then decided to have a Destination Wedding – our wedding date was randomly chosen according to the availability of the officiant in Punta Cana, a year after our engagement. Apart from the date and our outfits, nothing about our wedding was planned prior to getting to the resort.
When we got engaged, we decided I would move in with him a few weeks later… Well as we were planning the move and still going from his house to my apartment, one night in my apartment I was like: “hey, what if I took the cats with me tonight and never sleep here again? We’ll move the rest of my stuff gradually until the truck rental date”. And so we did and I officially moved in at 11pm that night after deciding so at 10:30.
Yay for spontaneous! I love it this way.

If by December 2012 I don’t feel more excited, Fiance and I are just going to elope. I do want to get married, but I have to put my condo, education, and other expenses first. Honestly I’m only thinking of having a wedding because I know it would depress my parents if they didn’t get to see it happen.

@the_future_mrs: use a JOP it was so calm and easy no worries and you can have your fam and friends close

How fun!! I love that! We aren’t totally spontaneous, but we do have our little moments of it. 🙂 Like me deciding to move to the Netherlands and then making it happen in a months time!

Are you showing us the rings and outfits before, or do we have to wait until after?

@GelaMac: YES! We are lol
That story is amazing…
Christmas evening …. My husband (then boyfriend) brought his mom to spend the holiday with my mom & I (we lived 4 hours from each other and had been dating about 1 year). We were in the bathroom talking and laughing and he says:
Him: “Why, do you want to go get married today?” and of course I say “What?! Yes!!”
So there we are… No rings.. No dress.. No tux… Nothing…
We put whatever we could find together.. Went to a chapel and were married at 9:00 p.m. The after party took place at the only casino open and we had dinner ( as you may have guessed…yes we got married in Vegas) 🙂
We skipped the whole engagement part.
