    I did things a little backwards! .. I had a BD shoot done this past April for his anniversary gift. Little did I know, he was going to propose a month later! He's already seen the pics and we have them on a cd. I however am still contemplating having them printed into a book to surprise him with on the wedding day. I'm undecided right now

      i actually gave him a book for his bday last year and i will say from experience that it was nice that i did it in private. i wouldn't want any of his boys to see it and FI wouldn't want anyone to see it either. plus it was nice to be there to see his reaction. just my two cents.

          I just had my session today and was thinking the same thing..... I like the idea of giving them before the trip.... still not sure.

            If I do bd pics, I think I want to give him the day of so the photographer can capture his reaction. Definitely wouldn't want anyone else to see it but I would probably have my MOH give it to him. I don't mind her seeing cause she is my cousin. I would make sure the other guys (his cousin, my brother, my cousin) wouldn't see either. I would make sure she stress the point of for his eyes only =).

              I like autjo's idea of having a romantic evening before leaving. I'm considering doing one of these, but will probably just get the one photo rather than an album (they're relatively unheard of in the UK, so are still really expensive!). I really didn't want to give it to him the morning of the wedding as he'll be constantly surrounded by people. I also generally love the idea of having a nice evening before leaving as things are going to be quite busy once we arrive!

                Awesome replies ladies! Thank you so much for this! I really want to do a  BD session, and was thinking of doing it while we are down in T&C, but have decided to do it at home instead so I can give my FI the book either the day of the wedding or before we leave.

                This has been super helpful!  I'm still undecided if I'm going to do one, but I'm strongly considering it.  I am body concious and don't want the entire world to see the book so I might use the idea of giving it to him the night before we leave.  That way no one else will see it!!

                  Thanks for the information. I think i would have to give that before as to not wanting someone finding it in your room or customs seeing it.

                    I am planning on doing one and giving it to him before we leave; I am more concerned about one less thing to pack! Plus, I think he will appreciate getting them more when he can have a chance to look through them and not worry about rushing off to rejoin the group (and I won't have to worry about someone else picking it up or something). 

                    I like the idea of making a romantic night out of it right before we head out! That will really put us in wedding vacation mode!
