SURPRISE! We're Getting Married! - Steps to planning a Pop-Up Wedding
Do you like surprise parties? The anticipation of seeing the reaction when the guest of honor arrives is certainly entertaining. Then the celebration with family and friends can truly begin!
What if we told you some people have surprise weddings? You might be thinking, “How do you even go about planning that?” Well, Angela’s Bridal was lucky enough to be a part of a surprise Pop-Up Wedding this summer.
LDT Productions put together this touching video that summarizes the steps of planning a Pop-Up Wedding that led Lauren and Shawn’s dreams to come true.

Step 1: The first step is to decide what traditional elements of a wedding you would like to keep. For Lauren, this meant having the gorgeous attire. We were honored to be a part of Lauren’s special day. We helped find the perfect dress to fit her vision. How amazing does she look in this beautiful Paloma Blanca bridal gown?
Lauren found her adorable flower girl dresses through Flower Girl Closet, which such a convenient and easy way to get these charming little dresses!
Step 2: The next step is to decide how to make it a surprise. Lauren and Shawn decided to invite everyone to a pot luck barbeque. In the summer, this is not at all suspicious, and the guests were shocked when they opened up a fortune cookie that read “Lauren and Shawn” and that day’s date. They then received more formal wedding information created by Caroline Corrigan.
Step 3: Next, you need to gather a team to make the magic happen. Lauren chose some awesome vendors to assist in her special day. Split Pea Photography captured these beautiful images shown throughout the blog. Claire Harris did an amazing job with hair and make-up in just 40 minutes, making Lauren feel absolutely perfect. Lastly, B. Darling Floral created the perfect arrangements for Lauren’s theme. They incorporated wild berries into the bouquets, and colorful centerpieces that brought the whole look together.
Step 4: Now celebrate your wedding! Enjoy the thrill of the surprise, and the fun throughout the day with family and friends.
Congratulations Lauren and Shawn! We feel so lucky and honored to be a part of your special Pop-Up Wedding. We’re so happy to help your dreams come true!
