I've arranged for a surprise for my partner trying to keep it secret is proving hard. maybe you could make a little box full of things, there's plenty of inspiration on Pinterest and Etsy. for example some socks so he doesn't get cold feet etc

Without giving too much away ( in case he reads this, can never be too careful lol) I've arranged for a pair of a certain animal to make an appearance after the vows at our wedding. He was obsessed with the idea when he saw it on social media, but i turned the it down straight away, so he won't be expecting it at all.

Im not sure if your partner is male/female but although i dont marry till next week i got my future wife a necklace locket and put pic of her grandparents in who sadly cant be with us on the day. So something for her to wear aswell as feeling like they are there with her x

I did a box with little bits in, like an engraved hip flask - to calm the nerves, mints for fresh breath, socks for cold feet, a "good husbands" ladybird book, property of boxers with mrs Drake and the date and some other little bits, think it was £30 max

I'm giving my H2B a present on the morning of the wedding (I'm planning on giving it to his best man to give to him as they are staying at the venue the night before). I havent bought it yet but I'm thinking of getting him a watch with our wedding date engraved on it (not a pocket watch tho as I want him to actually wear it), and maybe a new aftershave that will always remind him of the day.
And for the actual wedding, I am making some Roses made from harry potter book pages for my bouquet as I love harry potter. But what he doesn't know is I am also making some out of star wars comics as he loves comics and star wars. X

I made my H2B a photo album with all the photos of us taken over the years and wrote on each page where they were taken etc. In the front page I wrote some words from the heart. He loved it and got quite emotional

Should start by saying our wedding is Disney themed. I have currently got my h2b a set of mickey mouse cufflinks but am also going to get a couple of other bits and pieces to go in.

I got my husband a pocket watch that had a picture of his gran on it as she passed away 2 years before we got married and he was really sad she wouldn't be there. I also got him a letter from the football team he supported. Xx

I was going to do a grooms goodie box with lots of little things; socks or boxers, a mini cologne, some sweets, a mini bottle of his favourite tipple etc. With a card from me.

In the months leading up to the wedding I hid my husband's pocket watch which was broken but had massive sentimental value. On the night before the wedding we were laying out our outfits ready for the morning and he was horrified to realise he'd forgotten to bring it. I played along for a short while, and we joked "it's the ONE thing we've forgot!"

When we exchanged gifts he received a small Hessian pouch with "and so the adventure begins" written on it, and inside his fully functioning pocket watch. We both had a little cry...

I was hired to bring the dog to meet them when they come out of the ceremony. The dog is his world and it was an amazing moment.

Fill 12 envelopes with Date night ideas and he gets to open one a month on the date your wedding was and then month 12 is a Special Anniversary one!

I got him a pair of socks that say so you don't get cold feet. And a groom's survival kit. He loves the socks and still wears them. He saved the kit in our memory box.

I bought garden ornaments from rusty rooster all of which had personal meaning and memories for us. Each one had a note attached with the reasons behind them. Pride of place now in our garden following a few sentimental tears that our best man captured on the day.

We didn't have a wedding car because we stayed at the venue the night before and the wedding night.
But I organised a surprise tuktuk to take us from the wedding venue to lunch the day after the wedding.

I bought my husband a card and wrote a nice not in it for him to open. I also bought him some socks, and I made him a keyring with a picture of his dad in it and a very close friend of ours. I did myself a keyring with my dad's picture in it. He surprised me with a song, we've never been able to find it on karaoke, so he made it, and then sung it to me, he knew it would make me cry, and it did lol x
