Don’t let him see you!! Is it a hotel? Resort? Maybe you can have the maid or some lady that works there help you.

I had him help me on Day 2 since we separated the wedding and reception by a day. It was kind of fun 🙂

I did my hair/makeup in a robe, and Darling Husband got dressed.  Once the photog arrived, I kicked Darling Husband out, and slipped into my dress, the photog zipped me up.  I really wanted the whole “first look” reaction from him, so it was important that he not see me actually getting dressed, and that there was still a big reveal moment.

@bohosioux:  There were no photos of us technically getting ready together, he was fully dressed and ready to go when the photog arrived.  After we kicked him out, I did a “mini boudoir” shoot in my “something blue panties” as a surprise, then photog hid in the bathroom while I struggled into my crinoline and dress.  He came out to zip me up, and took some shots of me putting on my veil and touching up my makeup, then we headed down to the bar in the hotel (done up to look like an old English library) and did the first look.
