When it comes to weddings, most people either plan a big, lavish event or go elope in the middle of the night.

But now there's a third option – and it surprises the heck out of your guests.

It's called the ambush wedding and it works like this: You invite all of your friends to a "party" and tell them what time to show up, what to wear, etc. Then when they all arrive you hit them with, "Surprise! We're getting married! Right now! And you're all our wedding guests!"

People have been taking to the ambush-style wedding due to lack of time and lack of money, but also because it's just plain fun to surprise your guests. (NY Post)
