I think it’s great that you want to express to everyone that you love your Fiance and that he has done so much for you but I don’t know that a letter at the bridal shower is necessarily the place to do it. If I got this at a bridal shower I would probably think it was a little out of place. Perhaps you could try doing it at the wedding. You could have a picture of you guys on a table with the letter framed saying something like “A Letter To My Husband”. Let people read it there. Also, I wouldn’t mention about the time you broke up. Although it was a part of your relationship you probably want to focus on all the positive things. But, this is just my opinion. You should do what you want to do though.

I like the idea of framing it with pictures/display better than handing copies to everyone. It seems a little odd in general though (I hope that doesnt sound mean, I just think it would strike me as odd to be handed a copy or to see some of those details on display)- you might consider condensing this and including it as a toast to you FH either at the rehearsal or the reception. 

I agree, I would maybe leave out the negative bits and focus on the positive~

Could you give that letter to your Fiance on your wedding day? That would be so romantic. 🙂

Ooh, or could that be a toast to your Fiance at the rehearsal dinner? (I agree wtih Pwitty.)

When it comes to your wedding, you don’t need to feel like you need to justify your love or your relationship. The fact that you’re getting married is a wonderful, special and public display of your relationship. 🙂

If you really want to include it, I came up with another idea (don’t know if this is an option for you). Could you put together a slideshow for your rehearsal dinner, with photos of you two as a couple and you reading this as a voice over? It could be a gift to your husband at the rehearsal, but others would be present as well.

I think it would be touching to frame the letter next to a picture (or pictures) of the two of you for guests to read at the reception.

I agree with @soontobewalsh about not including the negative parts of the relationship, especially the line And through these year, he has only left me once, but it was because I pushed him out.

If family or friends have doubts about your relationship – don’t support their thoughts by reminding them of the break-up or split especially on the happiest day of your life! Don’t give them a reason to believe you have a less than perfect relationship together! =)

You could also include this sort of thing on your wedding website, if you have one.
