The Groom’s Gift: How to Give it to Him
What I really want to talk about, though, is how to gift it to him. This is a common question I get from my brides. There are so many options!
The Wedding Day
You are giving him a gift anyway, so the obvious answer is to give it to him when the bride traditionally gives the groom his gift. I have had several clients gift it this way, but it honestly depends on your comfort level. The only thing I recommend is making sure his groomsmen aren’t around when he opens it in this situation!
Another option is to give him a super sweet note explaining that he will get his gift later and it will be worth the wait. Maybe even give him a sneak peak of one of the photos. Some of my brides add on The Miami album that I offer, which is small folio album perfect for his desk. This album could have a less risqué photos in it that would be nice for him to have in the office.
After the Rehearsal Dinner
Most couples spend a few minutes after the rehearsal dinner alone before the go their separate ways for the night. At this point some bride’s give the groom’s gift to him so she can see his reaction first hand. This is a super sweet and intimate way to get excited for the wedding day!
After the wedding, you will both be so exhausted from such a long and super fun day! What better way than to come back home(or to your hotel room) than to have your album laid out on the bed waiting for him to open?
At the Honeymoon
One other option is to give the groom’s gift on the honeymoon! What a way to extend the wedding excitement than to wait to give him the gift after the wedding is over. The only problem with I can see with this is packing it around for a few weeks if you are taking a long honeymoon! Otherwise this is a great idea. 🙂

The Groom’s Gift
Whatever way you decide, he is going to love the album because he loves you. These are just a few options of how to gift it to him, but there are so many other ways!
Remember, although this gift is for him, it’s also a gift for you. Going into the wedding, you will have all of the confidence in the world after I show you how truly beautiful you are during your boudoir session.
Book your session about 2-3 months prior to your wedding to give me plenty of time to perfect your album. It will be the most fun thing you do in preparation for the wedding. I promise. 🙂
