My sis is getting married this August and we all wanted to pitch in and surprise her with something.
We found this slideshow that we’d like to have made for her and play at the reception.
Do you think she’d like this, or do you think she’d want something more traditional and less fun?? Or should we just ask her and have it not be a surprise?

how much of a control freak is she? i like surprises and would love one at the bachelorette or shower or rd, but NOT at my wedding. unless it was from FI.

I love it!! I wonder how much that costs?
I think unless she is super Picky…. it would be a great surprise!

I would freak if my besties "surprised" me with something at my wedding or reception. But that’s just me.

I’d probably enjoy a surprise, but some people are NOT into surprises. You guys presumably know her best!

oh my gosh, that is AWESOME, I personally would love a surprise like this! Although how would you get all the photos to correspond with it??

I personally would not want to have a surprise on my wedding day. I have everything planned to a t with my planner and everything will be timed perfectly.

What a cute idea! I would tear up and totally love it if it were me!

I wrote her and she told me it’s 500.00. I think we’re going to go ahead and do it. We we were brainstorming how to get video and photos without her knowing. I have a bunch of photos- and I am going to take a bunch of video of her and tell her I’m just documenting the whole wedding planning experience, etc.
She may know we’re up to something but she wont know exactly what

I think that is really funny! I don’t know if I would do it at the reception though, maybe the rehersal?

Neat idea but I would suggest not doing at the reception. I would be super annoyed if someone did that! I would say the rehearsal dinner would be more appropriate.

Yeah I’d say leave it out of the reception, too. It is a really funny video, but I would not take well to a ‘surprise’, no matter how funny it was.

Too funny – I love it!!! I think that it is more suited to the rehearsal dinner, when there is a more intimate crowd, though.

Depends on how she likes surprises, but I know I’d love it. Not as much at the reception, but I think it would be great at the rehearsal–like in 27 Dresses–only nicer! How sweet of you all to want to do this for her.

My bridesmaids surprised us at our wedding with a farewell sendoff lit with candles. It was amazing! I think as long as the surprise fits in witht he overall style of the event she will be delighted.
