I would love to be invited to something like this but we could never have pulled it off!

Definitely not crazy! I think you’d be crazier to go the other way by the sounds of it. This sounds awesome! Great idea!

I think that is absolutly wonderful and if my fiance would have aggreed to that I would do it as well! I hate spending money and having to invite this person or that person. To be honest I just wanted to elope! lol

Fantastic idea!  I’m sure it will work out wonderfully for you.  Besides… your wedding is supposed to be an enjoyable experience.  Not a headache.  This plan sounds like you are more in control and that is the way it should be!

I love the idea! The only concern I would have is that a lot of people wouldn’t feel the same urgency about making sure to go to an engagement party, so you might end up with some significant people missing it because they don’t realize the importance of it.

I have heard of one other person doing this, and she pulled it off. I am going to go against the grain here, but I am not a fan. I do not like feeling duped, and as a guest, though I would be honored to be included in your day, I would be miffed why you chose to handle it like that. Also, if you are dealing with trying to accommodate people now, imagine the damage control afterwards! I totally support scrapping the big wedding and having something intimate and doing it your way; I just feel that can be achieved without the gimmick of a surprise wedding. Good luck working it all out!

Great idea!  The expense can be absolutely overwhelming when you are paying for everything yourself.  As long as your wedding is *yours* I believe you will not have any regrets.
