Now...what do I get FMIL??

Recommended Posts

Here's the deal...


I posted the BM necklaces I was considering - starfish. Based on all your advice I've decided to go with the Tiffany starfish.


I want to get my mom and FMIL gifts too. There is a starfish brooch that matches the necklace. I know my mom would love it. FMIL would like it too - sort of. She wears really artsy/brightly colored jewlery and then silver. There is this awesome ring (Tiffany too) that I know she would love but it's not starfish at all. I think she will feel left out if I get the other 3 starfish stuff (FI agrees) and don't get it for her. But I think she would like/wear the ring more.


I guess I could always get my mom something totally non-starfish too then they would both be happy/not left out.

I don't know if this helps, but rather than getting gifts for our moms alone we did gifts for our parents. I got my mom and stepdad a GC to a swanky resort, and we're giving my dad & stepmom a nice BBQ.


Otherwise, I would say go with the gift that you think your mom will like the most regardless of whether it matches with the other girls.

I agree. I think I would get them each something unique to them that you know they would love. It shows that you are really considering their tastes and that you view them as individuals rather than just as one of the girls (BMs).

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
