    Surprise for Fiance 21st Mar 19 at 4:39 PM
    Hi all!

    I am getting married to my Fiance in July 2020 and whilst i have a little input, she is largely planning it. I am thinking of planning or doing something as a surprise for her, but am coming up with blanks. One definite no is fireworks, as she doesn't like them!

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Do you want a surprise at the wedding itself? Or a surprise gift to give her?

    Does she like a particular band or type of music , maybe hire a singer or group for a few tunes.

    A magician

    A caricature artist

    You choose the theme for the tables if she’s not done one already.

    Learn a dance routine or flash mob her.
    Life is like a bath, the longer you are in it the more wrinkly you become.

    Congratulations! I think Suejb2's idea of a Magician is great. We experienced it at a friends wedding and it was brilliant and also very funny. Of course, it depends on your fiance and which Magician you chose. We saw this guy - Chris Peskett he has great reviews so it wasn't just me who thought he was good! However, this might be more of a gift for your guests than your spouse.

    Another idea is to upgrade something for her as a surprise like the wedding car, my Dad did that for me and it was lovely. My husband took me to a swanky hotel for the wedding night with a huge bed and big bath - we were too exhausted for any shenanigans but a long soak and good mattress were greatly appreciated. I got my hubby a hardback photobook printed for my wedding - a story of us if you like. Photobox does some fab high-quality ones and you can annotate with funny quotes, song lyrics etc.
