May I ask what the reasons are you wouldn’t want to say out right that it’s a wedding?  It might be kind of cool to have a surprise wedding that day though.  And do you mean with telling vendors or with telling guests?

Are you saying you want to have a party and not tell anyone its a wedding until they are there? Or am I misinterpreting your question

I’m not sure of all the information with the issues but I feel like people I know at least would be much more likely to come if they knew it was my wedding as opposed to just a party if that helps.  But if the people that you think would definitely come if it were just a party are the only people you definitely want there, go for it! I’m bad with keeping secrets though so I could never keep it from everyone.

Someone here did stage a surprise wedding… gosh, I can’t remember her username though!

It was small, low-key, and at their home. They staged it as an engagement party, and I believe told one or two people to help them pull it off. It went really well, but definitely had it’s unique planning conundrums, IIRC. You would have to sacrifice some elements, like a bridal party, and speeches/toasts that are pre-prepared. 🙂

I’m with mandb122… I feel like if it’s just a party, people might be like, “Meh… I have another party to go to… I’ll just stop by.” But, if it’s a WEDDING, people will cancel other plans to make sure they’re there. If you are less concerned with who comes, then I say go for it.
