Different Ways to Surprise Your Sweetheart on Your Wedding Day


Want to bring what is sure to be an already perfectly romantic Wedding Day to a whole new level? Then why not send the love of your life a special surprise on the Big Day?


Here are a few ideas how to make your sweetheart swoon on your Wedding Day -- and remember to have these items delivered while he/she is getting ready for the festivities:

  • Send he/she a special handwritten note or card. Spill your heart out, share your excitement and let him/her know just how happy you are to be tying the knot. Love letters will never go out of style and are priceless, inexpensive gifts that your soon-to-be spouse will cherish forever.

  • For Brides: Send your groom a special trinket or piece of jewelry he can wear on the Wedding Day. A special pair of cufflinks, a beautiful watch, a bracelet or maybe a cool pair of shades he's been eyeing that he can wear at some point during the day. If possible, get it inscribed with your wedding day or maybe a few words to remind him just how much you love him.

  • For Grooms: Send your bride something she can wear on the Wedding Day -- jewelry is always a winner! A beautiful pair of earrings, a simple but special necklace or bracelet, maybe an anklet or perhaps some diamond earrings you know she loves.

  • Send your favorite photo in a beautiful frame. If you're planning on not seeing each other until your First Look or ceremony, sending a photo of the two of you is a beautiful reminder of why you are getting married. A picture perfect moment that you've shared is sure to put a smile on your soulmate's face.

  • Want to shock your groom and get his heart to flutter? Brides, plan to do a boudoir session ahead of time and create a beautiful album that he can open on the Wedding Day. Imagine how thrilled he'll be to see your sexy gorgeous self in an album made just for him. Maybe even give him a sneak peek of something you plan to wear during your Wedding night or honeymoon -- I'm sure he'll approve!

  • For the tech-savvy, text or email a special video message or collage of your favorite photos/adventures you've shared during your time together. And obviously, this is something you'd have to create ahead of time. Can you imagine seeing something so personalized and thoughtful on your Wedding Day -- tears galore for sure!

  • Send he/she something you can use on your honeymoon! Perhaps a brand new camera to document your newlywed adventures, or a go-pro for the all the water fun you'll be encountering. If you're planning an active honeymoon, he/she will love a new pair of hiking/running shoes. Or maybe share with him/her that you've planned a special activity for your honeymoon -- a diving adventure, a dinner at a special restaurant, a hot-air balloon ride, etc. Let him/her know, there are adventures and fun to look forward to -- together of course!

Whatever you decide to give or do, make sure to give your photographer a heads up that a surprise is coming your bride/groom's way so that they can document the moment when the "big reveal" happens!
