    Is anyone exchanging gifts on their wedding day?

      We are! I got him a very simple money clip from bluenile.com I had it engraved with our names & wedding date. Kinda cheesy, but I know he'll love it!

        I had the Boudoir pics done that I will have presented to him the night before (we're not staying together that night).
        I also want to get him a nice watch. Although I bought him a Movado last year, not sure what I can afford that would top that! Maybe a Tag? I'm not sure yet. He knows I already got him something since I had to come up with some excuse about why I went to Chicago, but I feel like he might feel ripped off if he doesn't get something more than pictures! lol, I don't know why I feel that way because I'm sure he'll love them, I guess it's just me.
        OK, that was a lot of rambling- sorry! I think this was a "thinking out loud" post!

          Hey Sarah, if you want a really nice watch for a really good price, check out the Invicta watch selection on shopnbc.com
          My FI is a watch enthusiast (mildly stated) and he has some bizarre degree in clock making (horology!!!) and he loves these watches - he says they are an amazing value. I've bought him like 2 or 3 :)

            Great tip Christa- thanks! I'll check that out...
            Horology, huh? If you'd said that without an explanation I would have been really worried....rofl

              I know - I like to call him a horologist in public every once in a while! It's fun

                I think I am going to end up getting BD pics as well and giving it to him. Sarah I was laughing when you posted b/c I also wanted to get him a watch but I had also given him a Movado and I didn't know if I could afford anything that would top that. But luckily my friend's husband is a jeweler and he told me he could get me good discounts on expensive men's watches. Like he told me he could get me a $18,000 rolex for $3,000 b/c he is a diamond distributor and so he only pays wholesale price and not retail. If you want me to ask for anything specific for you PM me and I will found out what kind of a price he can get.

                      Great gift! I like the idea of getting something that can be engraved with the wedding date- that way he won't have an excuse of forgetting our anniversary.
