Couple Booked And Planned Entire Wedding Before They Even Got Engaged
| Last updated
A couple had their entire wedding planned right down to the invitations and small details before they were even engaged.
She said: "What's something strange and unique you did when planning your wedding?
"I'll go first..."
She then explained how they managed to decide on the catering, her wedding dress, and even the date and time of their ceremony, then ensured that everyone would keep the date free by inviting them to a barbecue on that date.
Then, once the proposal actually took place, they clued everyone up on what they had been planning all along.
Fair play, it sounds as if they really put some thought and effort into it.
Still, the question remains, why didn't they just get engaged first off before planning everything? The benefits of that aren't immediately clear.
Obviously, it's better off as they could spend the four months ahead of their wedding enjoying themselves because everything was taken care of, but that's nothing that careful planning couldn't have achieved after the symbolic proposal starting gun had been fired.
The bride explained: "So we actually planned the entire wedding, caterers, dress, everything, before getting engaged and put it on our friends and family's diaries as a 'barbecue'.
"Then when we got engaged and told our friends and family we were engaged, we said, 'Oh that barbecue, not a barbecue. It's our wedding day. It's in four months' time, you don't have to stress, there's nothing to do, there's nothing to worry about'.
"Highly recommend. HIGHLY recommend."
The clip has been viewed thousands of times since it was posted, and hundreds of people have commented on their slightly unorthodox approach to tying the knot.
One person wrote: "Genius! My parents did similar, they got engaged on a Monday and got married that weekend at a registry office to avoid any fuss being made."
Another said: "Yep! Other than the dress, we had everything booked and only told our parents before we got engaged."
A third commented: "I love this.
"We are already engaged but love the idea of saying we are planning a 'party' and making it our wedding."
Perhaps more people are doing this than we thought?
