When it comes to wedding planning, the groom oftentimes takes a backseat. Since the attention is mostly on the bride, it’s easy to overlook the guy — even though he’s kind of an important part of the day (you can’t have a wedding without him).
Remind your man that the day is as much about him as it is about you by throwing in a surprise or two. Click through the slideshow above for 8 ways to catch your man off guard (in a good way!), from sweet love notes to sexy boudoir photos, to renting sick getaway cars and fireworks.
Boudoir photos: While he is getting ready, deliver him an album of boudoir photos of yourself. You may want to time this to when you know he won’t have a gaggle of groomsmen around him.
Engrave His Wedding Band: With your name, your wedding date or just a special saying.
Booze: Send over a stash of booze for the fellas to enjoy while they are getting ready. It’s a gift you know will be appreciated.
Love Note: Right before you walk down the aisle – when everyone is lined up in front and ready to go — have the flower girl hand your man a note from you. It could be something simple like, “I can’t wait to kiss you.” He certainly won’t be expecting it and his reaction will be photo worthy.
If you have a sense of humor, have a ring bearer walk down the aisle with a sign that says, “Run, [Groom’s Name], Run!” Your guests will get a kick out of it and it will make for some great photos.
Give in to something you kiboshed during planning the wedding: Maybe you didn’t want to hand out shots of Patron at the reception because you didn’t want the party to get too rowdy. Arrange for them. Were you worried that a cigar bar may stink up the dance floor? Find a way to make it work. If he really wanted a groom’s cake with his sport team’s logo on it, give in.
Rent An Amazing Get Away Car: He’ll be expecting a limo or a town car. Surprise him with a Bentley, a Checkered Cab, or whatever would catch him off guard.
Fireworks: Surprise everyone — guests and groom! — with a grand finale fireworks display as you dash off.
