- Wedding: July 2012
We’ve decided to throw in the towel on wedding plan – we probably would have ended up killing each other! So now we’re thinking we’ll have an engagement party next March/April (which will be early/mid autumn), and getting married then and there while all the friends and family are present.
Now, this has the obvious problem of organising a wedding in six months (eek!), as well as some people not coming along because it’s “just” an engagement party. Can anyone think of any other issues we might face? I can get a venue at the drop of a hat (thanks family!), so that probably won’t be a problem, but what else might we struggle with with only a six month timeframe or having the wedding as a surprise? Should our bridesmaids and groomsmen know?
Has anyone done anything similar? Did it work out well, did you regret not doing the big proper wedding? Have you seen someone do it and thought it was mean not to let others know about your wedding day?
