What an amazing idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


FI has children that live with us and I never wanted them to find the book and look through it, so from the beginning my photographer offered something called a presentation box for my photos.


I will receive 30 photos in a wooden box with a photo of my wedding shoes on the cover. This way if anyone finds it, they will think it's a jewelry box or whatever...


Plus, FI bought me the blue Manolo Blahnik shoes from the SATC movie and I wanted to make them special for him, too.


I think I am going to wait and give them to him on our first married morning. I have a fantastic digital SLR camera and it takes pretty professional photos. I think it will be much more intimate for me to give my husband the photos when we are alone. But I still want to capture his reaction.

I think i like the idea of giving it to him on the morning when we are officially married. I really have no idea.... I also like the idea of having the MOH deliver it. I'll have to figure something out soon.

I plan to have my book delivered to FI on the morning of our wedding. We will not be seeing each other until our "first look" before the ceremony. Another girl on here did a really cool thing with her BD Book. She gave her FI a card with a key on a chain the night before the wedding. Then the morning of the wedding, her father delivered a wooden box with a lock on it that held the BD book. So he was able to use the key to open the box...how cool! I might try to do that, but we shall see!!


Good luck wink.gif



i love this idea of giving him the key the night before! i'm keeping this in mind for my FI!

I just had my BD photos done last Sunday and I had Kamila Harris do it. She has a studio in Germantown but I believe she will travel to another location in the area. She was AMAZING! And she had a makeup artist do my hair and makeup and it looked so good! I would it over and over again it I could!


Here is her website. http://www.kamilaharrisboudoir.com/

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
