Surprise..... Surprising Your Guest With A Wedding

Mr. Budget and I were discussing our wedding the other day and I was just like how about a surprise wedding. Let's tell everyone we're having an engagement party and when they get to the restaurant they will find out it is actually a wedding. After I gave him a semi walk through of how it would go he was onboard. I think this is a great idea for us. It would allow us to have the cocktail reception that I always wanted and he can have the traditional ceremony that he always wanted without the church. It will also allow us to have an intimate gathering where the people who will attend will be generally there in support of our upcoming marriage. We are only looking to invited about 100 people expecting about 75 to actually come.

The downside is that we may not receive alot of gifts because we're giving people the idea that it is an engagement party. But I am okay with that. Now don't get me wrong I would love gifts but it is definitely not a deal breaker.

So what do you Budget Brides think about a surprise wedding? Good Idea or Bad Idea?

I love that idea! ANd let's be real....you won't be missing out on many gifts because people NEVER get you what you registered for anyway!

I love this idea. I've just decided to do a civil ceremony with the pastor, siblings and parents and then having a major cocktail reception a month later.

I think it's a pretty good idea but I would be a little apprehensive to do it b/c I feel like more people would be willing to go to a wedding if the invitation said "wedding" instead of an engagement party. I wouldn't want anyone to feel left out.
