Hmm, well mine won’t be a secret – I’ll be letting anyone and everyone know prior – they just won’t be invited!


I hope someone will report how they broke the news after the fact. 

I would probably share the news in the most happiest tone/manner ever, so they can get your vibe.  Not have them sit down, or “I have something to tell you, you might be upset.”  Don’t start it with a negative vibe.

We are eloping in September in Hong Kong. Our parents already know, but that’s it. We are going to send announcements when we get back with some pictures and while we are in Hong Kong hopefully we can find some small things to put into the announcements for everyone. The announcements will be like the boxed wedding invites but instead they will have the little gift and a little accordian fold out with pictures from the eloipement and then printed information about the elopement. We’re trying to make the announcements in a way that people will feel included in the elopement versus excluded from a wedding.
