When to give BD book?

Recommended Posts

Since FI and I will be seeing each other for a good portion of the day prior to me getting ready, Im going to give it to him. Simple enough.

I was going to do this for the wedding but now I may try to make mine in time for his birthday. No chance of it falling into the wrong hands or getting misplaced with all the wedding chaos.

FI and I stayed apart the night before the wedding. About 1 hour before the ceremony, I had our photog deliver it - but I also asked that FI was alone with the photog when he opened it and that everyone else was out of the room..

I will definitely have my photog there. I just think that it'd be weird to have him to get it from her and then she starts taking his picture. If she's in the background, he probably won't even notice he's having his picture taken.

 

Maybe I'll have my MOH do it. After all, she's already seen the live version of these pics since we did a group BD session. (Casey and Yamille were there too and let me tell you, they are definitely some hot girls!)

I had my sister/MOH deliver it. I wish our photog would have been there although my DH is very weird about people watching him open gifts. I was also a little worried there would be just a hint of jealousy b/c it was our wedding photographer who took the BD photos.

 

In the end it all turned out great, DH loved the photos and all was well. We did have to look at them again later when he didn't feel so rushed.

I might try to do that, but we shall see!!

Good luck wink.gif

WAHHHHH GIRL DETAILED ABOVE IS ME!!!!!!!!!

The boudoir book gift was amazing! my pro photographer has all the pics of DH's (THAT IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE WRITTEN THAT) reaction! I saw them on the LCD camera screen and many of them are just priceless. I will share them as soon as I get the pro pics!

Here is how it went down... on Tuesday Jan 27th (DH's 30th Bday) after our rehersal dinner I gave him a small box, containing a key. Immeadiately after I left and retired to my brother's suite for the night, as DH and I were not staying together the night before the wedding.

The next day at 12;30 my sister's boyfriend made his way over to our suite with a box custom made by my dad - it was locked. As I have heard, DH's reaction was a little slow - until the idea of the key kicked in. He then ran and got the key and opened the wood case.

He says that when he opened the book he started to laugh and leaf through the pages - it wasn't until he got to page 3 that he looked up and said "wholy *eff! IT'S AMARILLIS!"

The photographer has a ton of great pics!

I had my MIL deliver it to my husband a few minutes before the ceremony. It was awesome. There are so many great pictures of him tearing up about what a great gift it was, b/c i hate to get my picture taken.

Hey question ladies.. I have my BD session booked for March 7th.. but I don't think my price includes an album and to buy one costs the same as the session... did any of you ladies have to go out and buy a cool album to put them or know of any non expensive sites I can check out and possibly buy one from there?? If you could let me know that would be great!!! Thanks!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
