So what are you doing to make the ceremony special for your groom? I’ve joked around saying if he doesn’t tear up or have a stunned look when he sees me, I haven’t done my job!
Outside of my dress and all...I’ve seen it done once before where the bride had a 15-20 second recorded message read to the groom before the doors opened and she came down the aisle...I thought it was a nice personal touch... Any ideas?
My FH used to sing “All of Me” to me when we were in high school. Every morning when I came to his locker he would sing it as I walked down the hall. Though at many times it was embarrassing I loved it. I will be walking down the aisle to “All of Me”.
When he's getting ready, I'll send a letter and gift to him. I'm getting him a personalized whisky bottle and glasses.
And for the ceremony, I'm simply suprising him by the song that will be playing when I walk down the aisle. He originally wanted to wait until that moment to see me, but we're doing the first look instead. So that will be my surprise. He will have no idea what the song is, and I hope it makes him cry like a baby.
We wrote love letters to each other which we read while we were getting ready/before the ceremony...we did not write our own vows in the sense that we each had written an individual speech (but we did customize the vows we repeated from our officiant) because my husband is really shy, so the letters were perfect! During the ceremony, I walked down the aisle to "our song" which I had covered by a guitar/violin duet. I also had a picture of our dogs snuck into his suit pocket so they'd still be with us on our wedding day even though they're way too high energy to have actually been present lol!
My husband isn't much of a crier, and I'm not sure if he shed a single tear on our wedding day (there may have been a little misty eyes once or twice!), so my only advice is: you know your FH! If he's the emotional type, he will likely cry, but don't base your feelings of success on your wedding day by the number of tears he shed!
I’m not making it an aim to make him cry or tear up. I have a feeling he might, but as for making it special, we’re writing our own vows, we’ll write letters to each other to share the night before. Well I have a book of letters I’ve been writing to my future husband for years before I ever met him, so he’ll have plenty of reading material while he’s getting ready.
I not trying to make him tear, however I'm positive we both will.
His mom was special to me and he was so close to her, her passing was the reason we were able to find each other again I bought him a pin memorial with her picture with incription that she is walking with him on his special day. For him to wear in his jacketIt will be given to him the morning of as holes in the floor of heavan is sing by family member sings. As well I'm giving him a personalized hankerchief with what he means to me.
