So, the future husband and I have been thinking about doing a suprize wedding.
Him and I have been together for nearly 6 years and have a little girl together. We have been talking about getting our baby baptized, and popping in a surprize wedding while all of our friends and family will already be here.
We would have to recruit some help, and everyone we have mentioned it to has very positive feedback and support our decition. Does anyone have any informaion as to how this has gone for other people? I’m pretty set as to this being our way of getting married, it is very much like our relationship. Please help!

A surprise wedding sounds cool 🙂

hmm… depends on how you think your family would react. I could see this as being really great or being really… not. Personally, I probably wouldn’t think it a high priority attend a friends daughter’s baptism as I would their wedding, so I would be worried some people you want there might not be? But I’m not very religious, either.. I think I would be put off by this and most of my friends and family probably would too, but you know your family/friends better than we do!

the people who we would want to attened, would. and the ones who may not attend that we would like, we would kinda say that there is something ‘else’ going on, and maybe they want to rethink their decition. I’m trying to avoid the stress and the ‘expectations’ you are held up to as a bride, and break the mold a bit. I’m also looking for creative ideas for what to do for a reception. I’ve seen the shoe game, along with some others, but I just can’t think of anything that is “us” to do.

This sounds so cool! I can’t see anyone being offended with it, in fact it’s probably they’ll probably like it better. Less worry over gifts and registries and what to wear, and really emphasizes your whole little family. I love it!

A friend of mine did that a few weeks ago. They were both finishing their bachelors degrees and had a party for that. When the guests arrived they suprised them with a wedding. It was a great success and everyone was really happy with it.
