    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
