When to give BD book?

Recommended Posts

My boudoir photos are being done two days before our wedding, so there is no possible way to get him the book the day of.

 

He will be getting a surprise after the wedding and after everything is all said and done.

I only JUST NOW decided to have a little "first look" time. I'd been pretty against it before and the only reason I'm going to go ahead with it now is because the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it might alleviate some nerves on his part. Theres a lot of pressure with the whole beginning of the ceremony thing where all eyes are focused on the two of us and our response to seeing each other-especially for his part. The book would be a great spontaneous mood lightener I think, along with just seeing me in a semi-private moment where he can have whatever reaction feels right to him away from all the eyes.

I gave mine to him the night after our wedding before we left for our private dinner. This was not the original plan, but I didn't want to send it to his parents' room the day of the wedding where he was getting ready! Awkward! I'm glad I waited cuz I got to see the reaction first-hand and it was very special, a moment neither of us will soon forget. My only regret? Not having the camera ready, but the look on his face is forever etched in my memory

These are great ideas! I think I'll have one of my photographers bring him the book but I don't want everyone else hanging around when he gets it so we'll have to see how it works out.

 

For the ladies who have already gone through this I would love to see some pictures of your DH's reactions to seeing the books.

I decided about 2 weeks ago when I finished designing my book that I am going to ask my photographer deliver the book to FI. I really want his reaction photographed; no matter how much he may try to hide his reaction bc he has an audience - this will shock him to the point that he can't hide it! =)

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 cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
