    I wouldn’t have him open it in front of anyone unless you would both want all of them to see it, and I’m guessing he wouldn’t feel that way. I would give it to him the night before and tell him to open it in the morning in private, and then have your Maid/Matron of Honor deliver him a card and something small, like his favorite candy bar or snack, for him to open while he’s getting ready.

    I did this for my Darling Husband for our wedding (and he loves it to this day…!!!!). I gave mine to him the night before with explicit directions that he’s not to open it a) that night or b) in front of anyone. I packaged it with a fun pair of socks and cufflinks for the wedding so he’d have something to show his parents if they asked what I got him.

    What about giving it to him the night before, and ask him to open it when he wakes up on your wedding morning?

    Good luck and have FUN!

    I would give it to him the night before and tell him to open it the morning of when he is alone. You don’t want his groomsmen ogling your Butt.

    @sofiekitty:  I agree with PPs that he definitely shouldn’t open it in front of other people. That has too much potential for making a lot of people feel uncomfortable. Do what PPs say and tell him to open it the morning of and make sure he’s alone. If you really want him to have somehting to open while he’s getting ready, I think the pair of socks idea that PP had would be cute, and you could package it with a very sweet and well thought out love note!

    @sofiekitty:  I’m going to do one too! I like the idea of giving it to him yourself the night before. That way he is alone with the album when he goes to bed lol and then in the morning he will be super exctied for the day lol. Like caroheart said just give him a sweet little card. I have a question about the boudoir shoot. I currently live in Vegas but me and my fiance might be moving to NYC in the next month or so depending on how his final interview goes. I might have to do the boudoir shoot in NYC instead of Vegas. I haven’t called yet to see how the process works. Do you pay for the location normally? Also is it super expensive? You can always private message me if you don’t want it public. Thanks  🙂

    I gave mine to Darling Husband on our wedding night. I didn’t want to risk anyone seeing it. It was also nice seeing his reaction to all the pictures.

    As such, I wouldn’t probably give it to him the night before if it’ll be in his room if the Groomsmen are getting ready with him in his room, unless he makes a concerted effort to keep it hidden. I certainly wouldn’t have it delivered while they’re getting ready.

    Of course, if you are fine with them seeing it, then I guess either times would be fine.
