Ring exchange sort of?

Recommended Posts

For a vow renewal, a lot of couples exchange rings. It is not a must, but a lot do this. Well, I really want to get my dh a new wedding band but he point blank said that I would be wasting my money because he wouldn't wear it. (He hasn't worn his original one since our wedding) because of his job. That being said, I told him then not to get me one and he says" I can get you whatever I want to"! He is thinking of getting me the 3-stone ring-the past, present and future ring of some sort. Well, my problem is, what could I give him then for this ceremony? We will be celebrating 25years and it is a silver anniversary, even though neither one of us really wears silver?? He is just too cute, he doesn't even want to see my dress I bought. He wants to wait until the ceremony. Got to love him!!

 

I don't know what to do!!

I actually do not think you have to get him anything. My ex in-laws had a vow renewal and didn't exchange rings. Maybe his gift to you could be just that. I gift.....unless you want him to give it to you at the actual vow renewal?

 

You could always get him a new watch?

what about him getting a tattoo ring!!??

 

Or if he doesn't want to do that, they do henna in Cabo. I once got my FI's name inside of a heart on my shoulder when we were in cabo, just for fun. It lasts for about 2 weeks.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I would love to get a tattoo, but I am too chicken. Dh said he would do the ring tattoo. I may have to look more into that. Thanks for the ideas.

First of all, congrats on many years of marriage! My friends just had their 40th year of marriage/vow renewal and didn't exchange rings.

Maybe you could just gift him with something he really likes. :)

Congrats again!

That is a blessing you guys have remained together all those years and a beautiful example for the rest of us just starting out! :)

That is very awesome that you guys have celebrated 25 years and not only that but then you are doing a vow renewal. I agree you dont have to give him anything. But if you really feel you need to how about one of those titanium balance bracelets like the golfers wear or some nice cuff links?

I love the tattoo idea, expecially for the man who doesn't wear jewelry...we are planning to exchange rings at our vow renewal as an upgrade to the rings we already have.

How about getting him something that he would like but wouldn't normally buy for himself, ie "I'm not paying that kind of cash for that!", then its something he really wants but didn't want to say he'd bought.

 

Like a nice painting or something that when he looks at it he will remember why its there.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
