Need opinions on a couple things involving gifts.

Do you always need to do gifts at the actual wedding?? Could we wait until we return home to do this?

I am buying my parents a new computer tower as a gift to them (not a traditional gift but they need this badly).

Here is my dilemma...I have given my MOH a free trip to Jamaica (she paid taxes only) and have paid for her dress. Do you think I need to do anything else for her?

All your thoughts here would be appreciated.

I think you are very generous in what you have already given your MOH. I think she would understand if she didn't get anything else. But if you feel like you really need to get her something....get her a cute necklace or compact with her name engraved in it or something inexpensive like that. Just my opinion!

I bought my BM's their shoes, cause they werent sure they wanted to wear necklaces (the dress has some sparkle) and I am getting them massages the day of the wedding. So that is it. No gift at the wedding itself.

For my girls... I bought the dresses for them and then made up little goodie bags for them with little things that ment things to us that I gave them before we left for Jamaica, sparkle flip flops... - Diva status, starfish necklace, and a photo album for them to keep all their pictures in and I added pics of us at our Bride and Groom Pub Crawl to start the album along with pics of us trying on our dresses.

    • 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.
