I just had my boudoir shoot on Thursday and I cannot wait to see the photos!! I’m really excited to give a book of them to my Fiance as part of his wedding gift (I also have his favorite wine from our favorite vineyard in CA). My question is, when do you give your Fiance his wedding gift? I had originally thought that you send it over in the morning while they’re getting ready, or share a short ten minutes together after the ceremony to exchange gifts.
But then I got thinking: maybe not the best idea to give Darling Husband a book of pictures of me in lingerie in seductive poses right before we go in a church to get married or when we only have ten minutes alone? Am I overthinking this or overestimating the power of male arrousal? When did you give your Fiance your boudoir book?

After the reception – I dont want him sharing it with the boys. 😛

I’m giving it to him after the rehearsal dinner when we have a few minutes alone. I want to see his reaction which is why I don’t want anyone else giving it to him on the wedding day. Also, I love the idea of him getting the book and then the next time he sees me, I’ll be walking down the aisle. If we were going to have some quiet time after the reception together, I could see doing it then, but that’s not how our night is going to go. We’re having an after party with our closest friends and I’m sure it’ll be a late, crazy night.

I wanted to give before the bachelor party, but it didn’t come in time so I had to settle for showing the pictures to him on the digital frame. We exchanged gifts (actual book) a few days before the wedding. We had a date night just before my cousin flew into town and things became crazy with wedding events (bachelorette, rehearsal) and people. He didn’t want to bring it on the trip and have someone stumble across it. For that reason, plus wanting to see his reaction, I would **strongly** suggest you not send it over that morning. It’s a private thing – my guy doesn’t want his buds seeing it or teasing him about it, and I certainly don’t want them seeing me! (It has nothing to do with the “power of arosal,” which yes, I do think you are overthinking!)

I wouldn’t gove to him anytime when other people, friends of family might be helping clean up pr gathering your possesions. Like at the wedding, or during any alone time on the day of….I’d be too afraid of someone else picking it up!

I would not give it to him when he’s gonna be around other people, lol. People may wanna see what the present is and I’m sure you want it to be for his eyes only. I vote after the reception
