    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 am planning on giving my FI his BD book the day of. I really want one of my friends to deliver it to him a couple hours before we go down the aisle.

        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 love the idea with the box and key.

                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! =)

                  Shannon-that sounds perfect. I am going to have to send the delivery person with a camera to capture his wowza moment, haha

                    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 just realized I never posted the pics!!!!!!!

                    the photos were done by Lisa Mark Photography.... Click the image to open in full size.

                      I love the idea of having the BD book delivered by the photographer.
