Thats the thing the important people will be there and thats what counts. If people don't come because its an engagement party then thats there bad luck. I am not worrying about anyone else its me and my FH thats matter
I would highly recommend the surprise weddign idea. My list of things to organise are so small its so much less stress.
All that I have had to organise is
Dresses (2 dresses because one for engagement and one for wedding what girl doesn't want 2 new dresses?)
Suit and shoes for FH
Thats its thats all I need to organise.
And I am so excited and can't wait to see everyones reaction they are going to be so happy for us.
We have written our own vows and I can't wait to hear what FH has written and I just can't wait.
My sister got married last year and it was so stressful and so expensive I don't want all that stuff.
