The art of pulling off a surprise wedding

Boy oh boy are surprise weddings fun! Fun, because there’s nothing quite like a room full of shrieking people who are none the wiser that you are about to get married.

Surprise weddings are the perfect option for couples that are looking for something completely nontraditional, want to rein in the budget of planning a full blown wedding or simply want to be married sooner rather than later. But how do you pull of a wedding that will take everyone by surprise?
