Ugh…so the photographer that took the boudoir photos for my gift to my groom for our wedding sent me a CD to look at and choose pics from. I have been SUPER sick lately, but had the CD in there yesterday to take a quick look. Sickness struck soon thereafter and I put my Mac down on my desk before ejecting the disk. When my fiance asked if he could use the computer this morning, in my medicine-induced daze, I said "Sure," only to realize this evening that the disk was in there the whole time.
After asking him point blank if he knew what the "wedding day gift" to him was going to be now…he looked away and said "No." And we’ve been avoiding the topic ever since. I am 100% positive he saw the disk, perhaps the pictures if his curiosity got the best of him, and now I don’t know what to do. I figure I’ll just give the gift to him early and get him something else that WILL be a surprise? But I need ideas. I was so excited and now I’m so sad I ruined it! AND I’m still really sick to boot.
Help make me feel better?

Oh I’m so sorry! That really is a stinky situation. I would probably still wait to give it to him as part of a Groom’s gift, and then maybe something smaller to go with it?
I don’t have much advice, but I definitely feel for you!

Uh-oh! Well, maybe he really didn’t see it? You might be reading into the "avoiding the topic" thing,unless you often talk about your gifts in advance or something. Don’t be too bummed with yourself! Besides, he’s going to be getting your hot boudoir photos anyway, so he shouldn’t be complaining, right? 🙂

Thanks, ladies. He says he didn’t "look," but it’s hard to say. He’s an honest guy, but we didn’t get too in depth. I think I just got really upset immediately…but, you’re right, it should still be a fun gift. I hope. 🙂 Thanks!

It doesn’t matter if he’s seen them already! If he did, it was probably a quick glance so that he didn’t get caught checking them out. And if he did, those images are going to be burned into his mind until he can get his hands on the actual printouts and look at them all he wants!!!! 🙂 If he knows that book is coming his way, he’ll practically be drooling to get it!!!!! 🙂 🙂
So even if he saw it, it is still an amazingly awesome gift & he’ll love it! As for something else… maybe just something small. I don’t think that the fact that he might have seen the pictures "de-values" the boudoir shoot as a gift!

Yeah… that stinks. I’ve been super-paranoid about my groom looking at my computer and seeing something that should be a surprise.
It’s still a gift even if it’s not a surprise. I’d say go for it and don’t worry about finding a replacement or something to go along with it. I’m sure he’ll still love it. Think about it this way… the anticiaption is building until he can see them again!
