How To Surprise Your Partner On Your Special Day

Your wedding day is already one of the most special days of your life. The happiness, the joy, the celebration, it’s a day like no other. If you want to take the romance to the next level, however, why not surprise your partner with a little extra something?

Here are a few ideas of how you can catch your partner off-guard and add even more romance to your big day…

Midnight Feast

After a hectic day and potentially lots of dancing, it’s possible that hunger might strike. What could be better than settling down to a midnight feast with your partner? Enjoy your favourite snacks while taking a few moments, just the two of you, to reflect on this exciting new chapter of your life.

In the days leading up to the wedding, you could put together a special hamper of your favourite goodies. You could even have it taken up and put in your room by a trusted someone, ready for later.

Love Letter

While your wedding vows are a kind of love letter in themselves, you could write a more personal declaration of your love to surprise your partner with. It could be a quiet moment just between the two of you, or, if you’re feeling brave, you could share it during the speeches or reception. We’re sure it will have everyone in tears!

It’s going to be a long and busy day, so getting your thoughts and feelings down on paper and reflecting on your journey as a couple could be a good way to relax in the build-up. Or it might be a way to cement the day when you’re settling down later.

All those wonderful memories are sure to come flooding back as you write. It’s guaranteed to be something your partner will treasure forever and it will help you to document your wedding day for years to come.

Surprise Present

Add some humour into an emotion-packed day by surprising your partner with a gift that is sure to draw laughs. How about personalised socks? This pair from Etsy, allow you to customise the socks with pictures of your own face. This kind of gift will be a unique and memorable memento of your special day.

Alternatively, you could go with something on the more romantic side of things. For example, you could turn your first dance lyrics into a print. Not only is it a thoughtful gift, but whenever you look at it, you’ll be reminded of that magical moment that was your first dance.

We’re sure that your partner’s face will be absolutely priceless no matter what the surprise.  Who knows? They might even have thought of doing the same thing. This day is all about the two of you, and that extra touch might be the perfect cherry on a wonderful cake.
