What are some ways to keep your wedding date a secret?

Cupid’s Advice:

Weddings can be a big to-do, and some couples who want to keep things low key may decide to keep their wedding date a mystery.  Cupid has some tips to keep the word of the wedding getting out:

1. Run away: Perhaps the easiest way to keep anyone from finding out about your wedding is to elope sporadically.  If you plan to elope, you might break down in excitement and tell someone, but if you go on a whim, only you and your fiance will know.

2. Don’t go public: Sure, people may know you’re engaged, but who says you have to announce a wedding date?  Keep the date strictly between yourself and a few loved ones so you can keep things as private as possible.

3. Last Minute: Planning a wedding can be stressful, so take the stress out and plan a quick last minute wedding without all the fuss of decorations and a guest list.  Only tell the people close to you a few days beforehand and word is less likely to get around.
