We are having a small (about 35 guests) winter wedding. Since it is a second marriage for both of us, we have splurged on some big things, but in other areas, I’ve tried to stay practical. For that reason, we had decided to have a DJ, though FI and I both love live music and our (terrific) first date was spent dancing to a great oldies band. I really wanted a band, but figured that since our wedding was small, we didn’t really need a band and quietly went with the DJ idea. I had gotten some DJ quotes and we were supposed to book one this weekend.
When I brought up the DJ topic last night, he got a twinkle in his eye and said, “Well….we don’t need to book any of them.” I looked at him, puzzled, and he smiled and said, “I booked favorite Soul/R&B Band this morning for our wedding. You wanted a band and have worked so hard to plan our wedding that I wanted to give you a special surprise.” I just started bawling. I am so blessed to have such a thoughful and intuitive FI. He rocks! (No pun intended!)
So tell me, what little tricks did/does your FI have up his sleeve to surprise you for your wedding?

@MissMiaMarch: That is so sweet! I don’t think my FI has any tricks up his sleeve just yet – he’s not much of a planner about any aspect of his life, let alone our wedding. I will just be happy if he manages to pick out his own suit and get it tailored in time 🙂 I would so love a band – your wedding is going to be awesome.

That’s so sweet!
I think the only wedding-related surprise that DH planned was… my e-ring and proposal. 😛

Awww! That’s so sweet of your FI!
DH was in charge of dealing with the DJ, and while he made sure to ask me about the “maybe” stuff, I basically stayed out of his way. During our reception, in the middle of the meal time playlist, his school song and my school’s fight song came on! We’re both fanatic about college sports, so the songs were such a fun and happy surprise.

Thanks ladies…he’s a keeper! Only now he thinks we should invite a few more people so the band has a bigger audience. Arrgh!
@HisMoon: That is awesome…what a fun surprise!

FI was awesome about planning the proposal. I think he may be singing to me at our wedding. <3
