I LOVE this idea!  I thought about something like this (say it was an engagement party–then surprise!), but our family and friends live all over so it didn’t work out.

Could you maybe tell a few people who live far away so they could still make it?  Also, I’d suggest letting a couple trusty people in on the plan (perhaps a Maid of Honor and Best Man), just because planning alone may be really stressful and difficult.  I have a friend who went to a surprise wedding and she loved it!  The couple was hidden and everyone thought they were at an engagement party–then the brother announced that it was actually the wedding and everyone should have a seat!

Good luck!

I know some people that did this, but they had hardly any out of town guests… so everyone they really wanted to be there was there. They said it was an engagement party, and then SURPRISE, they got married.

All my family is spread out, so this definitely wouldn’t work for me, since it would be important to me to have my family there… but if you think everyone you “have” to have attend would come, then go for it!
