That's what I'd do Philippa, or something similar - not that OH and I are likely to do that - we're happy as we are
Friends arranged their wedding secretly, arranging to take niece and nephew out for a 'Special Day' in half term and said they were to wear their best clothes, and then they'd booked a restaurant and arranged meet up with family and friends without any of them knowing that the rest were turning up.
