    Trial hair and make up and meeting the photographer to discuss some photos…plus! This is how I’m going to wear my hair so you guys can brainstorm some poses.

    I wouldn’t bother coming up with a lie or excuse that might make him suspicious – why not just tell him that it’s a surprise for him, and he’ll find out what you were up to on the wedding day?

    Even if he suspects you may be running off to do boudoir photography, he won’t know that you are, so it will still be a nice surprise. 

    There are so many threads where the guy seems to be doing something suspicious, and the bee gets all panicked and upset, then it turns out that he was just planning a nice surprise. Don’t give an alibi, there’s too much potential for chaos with lies, even if they’re told with good intentions!

    I’d just say, it’s partially a surprise, partially a girl thing and give him an enigmatic little smile.

    Say you’re doing your make up trial and meeting with photographer… say something about makeup and lighting for pictures. making sure it all works together… lol a man wouldnt question something like that.

    I think you should combine your ideas – tell him that it’s a meeting with the photographer first, then after that you are working on something that’s a surprise for him.  That way he doesn’t get suspicious if it takes a long time.  I love NatashaLH’s idea about makeup and lighting for pictures!  Gives you an excuse to be all dolled up. You could also say that this is how you’re considering wearing your hair and makeup for the rehearsal dinner, and want to see how it will turn out for pictures.

    I agree with you on not bringing the friend into it…she might feel like she’s obligated to tell your FI or FI’s friend if she thinks you’re up to something.  Good luck!

    Just tell him you are meeting the photographer. Then on your way home get changed into some sexy lingerie and a trench coat and suprise him.

     

    He wont notice the make up and hair and if he does he will think you have done it for him (which in essence is true).
