You mean  you are not having a big/public  wedding ? But you  are going to get married , privately or an elopement maybe ? I’m m just a bit  confused because a wedding is what  you are engaged to do , as it were.

ETA just  read your post again  more carefully and I see you are planning to get married, just privately . You might want  to tell people  you are not having  a  public wedding , so no-one  get it wrong like  I did .

IDK about the MOB mug or whatever , which kind of seems like  the trappings of a traditional wedding  and might suggest to her that you are going to have  the more usual sort of celebration . But like I said, idk!

If no one else will be there, then why announce an egagement to everyone who will not be invited to witness it? Wait until,after you get married and then just tell them you got married. I feel it’d be weird for family and friends to know that you’re engaged but unwelcome to witness the marriage.

I think putting an announcement in the newspaper is a good idea for you (not full page, lol!)

The mug implies she gets to be with you on the day IMO. It may rub salt into the wound. Congratulations on your engagement!
