    I’m going to give mine to my photographer (who is NOT the same photographer) to give to him.  He will know what it is though and get shots of him as he opens it (since he’ll be there anyway)

    I think that the best man should take the groom in a separate room and give it to him.  That way, not all of the groomsmen are checking out your goods! 🙂

    The best man can just give it to him with a wink and a nudge and leave for 20 minutes…

    I’m giving it to him myself at our first look.  I don’t care if I stand there and watch while he looks at them, I want to see his reaction for myself!!  Our videographer AND photographer will be there to capture the moment.  🙂

    I will have someone, probably my sister, take it to him. It will be all wrapped up and hidden so obviously my sis can’t see it, not that she would care. I’ll have written on it ‘for your eyes only’ so he knows to go somewhere alone to look at it. I’ll also have her say something so knows others should not be looking. I’m so excited!

    Is he getting ready at home?  I’d wrap it and tuck it under his pillow, then text him while you’re both getting ready and tell him to look there for a “surprise”

    I”m going to hand it to him after the rehearsal dinner the night before. I will make sure to pull him aside so we’re completely alone. I WANT to watch him open it. He’ll be giddier than a schoolgirl.

    I’m having my Maid/Matron of Honor deliver it to him the day off, she is the one doing the shoot and that way she can pull him aside to be alone for him to see, but still have the photographer kinda there to take some pictures of is reaction.

    I gave it to him, privately, at our rehearsal dinner the night before. We went outside to the beautiful front area and he opened it up. Unfortunately, because it was a bit dark out he couldn’t see them the best but he still loved it and was very surprised. I like that I got to see his reaction.

    I think delivering it AT the wedding could be potentially risky. After the rehersal dinner, or on the honeymoon I think is better timing.

    One thing for you to consider is what will happen to the book when he’s done looking at it? If he’s carrying it around (even for a few minutes), people may ask “what’s that?”. If its left on a table, what if someone picks it up & looks at it accidentally? The day goes by so fast, just make sure someone is “in charge” of putting the book away (in your luggage, with other weddings gifts, in the car).
