I had originally planned on surprising my Fiance with a [email protected] groom’s cake on wedding day. However, after researching pricing and talking to many of you about whether or not your cakes had been worth the price you paid, I’ve decided that I am, instead, going to make his groom’s cake myself (because cake making is my “thing,” and it will be more personal and meaningful that way!)
Plus, I may have spilled the beans about my ORIGINAL plan…cus I stink at surprises.
SO, I’m now trying to think of a new way to surprise him on our wedding day.
Did any of you surprise your groom with something special? Please share!
And vote in my poll regarding some of the ideas I’d already come up with!!

FYI: This is something I’d be paying for myself – out of pocket – as opposed to out of the money my parents gave us for the wedding. Thus, the surprise is actually from ME 🙂

Definately go for photography! It’s memories you can keep for a lifetime, and he will still be able to see and remember your surprise years from now 🙂

I would like to see what people suggest. I think this is a wonderful idea and might adopt it for myself :3

Do a choreographed dance with your bridal party to one of his favorite songs!

@luludallas: I fear that one would totally backfire on me LOL
I can’t dance. At all.

I would say the photography, but i dont think thats really a surprise…Its kinda for both of you and what if he wasnt pleased on how much you spent.
The surprise doesnt have to be something that costs something it could be funny or silly. Like if you can sing, seranad him, write a poem, do a picture slide show. For something really funny get dressed up in a rain coat and goggles for the cake cutting and then get him with the cake. Your guest will love it, he will laugh and think I have an awesome wife!! He probably thinks that anyway…think outside the box. And dont spend lots of money.
I think the grooms cake idea is awesome, so what if he knows. He doesnt know what it will look like…

After talking with one of my bridesmaids, I think I will not keep the photographer a total surprise…
I have an appointment set up with an affordable photographer who I think Fiance will really love, but since photography is SO important to him, I want him to help select the photographer.
I think I will surprise my Fiance on Monday by not telling him where we’re going and then taking him to the meeting.
He’ll just be getting his surprise a bit (a year) early.
And then I’m DONE trying to plan a surprise for him!! OMGosh I’m just terrible at it LOL!

I’m getting my Fiance a really nice watch and then writing a really heartfelt letter. Both will be delivered to him while he’s getting dressed.

I’m getting boudoir pics done, and also we’re exchanging letters during our getting ready tinge. Later, we are going to put the letters in a bottle and throw it into the ocean ( we’re getting married on the beach)
