What's everyone doing for a Groom's gift? I did a BD shoot and am making a photobook, but wondering if I should get something else too that he can tell his family and friends about?

 

I am also doing a BD shoot but I got him personalized collar stays and a personalized tie clip from Red Envelope.  He wears a suit everyday so I know he will love them.  I got to put whatever I wanted on the collar stays.

Hmm good call... I also did a BD shoot and want to get him something else as a more "traditional" gift.

 

He really liked the cigar cases we got the GM... so maybe I'll surprise him and order one of those?

I had never heard of a collar stay before and just had to look it up, what a great idea! And even better it can be personalized! Your FI will love it if he wears a suit every day.

I'll have to check out that site about the cigar cases. My FI loves cigars (I hate them, but can't complain too much as we both quit smoking cigarettes, 4 years ago for me and 3 for him, so it beats that!), so maybe that would be a nice gift for him. Thanks for the idea!

For the Photobook, is everyone using My Publisher? I'm about to place my order in the next few days, just tweaking the pages at the moment. Also are you giving it before you go away, or having someone deliver the morning of the wedding at your destination? I really really want to gift wrap mine and have someone drop it off to my FI the morning of the wedding, but I'm nervous about going through customs with it or having anyone at all besides future hubby seeing it! Definitely won't put it in checked luggage, but my family are flying to Boston from Ireland and we are then all flying to Mexico together so will be so paranoid with the book in my carry on, LOL!

I plan on using either Mixbook or another site that lets you create photo albums.  I'll have to check out My Publisher. 

 

I think if you wrap it up as a present there is no way anyone would be able to see it except your FI.  I plan on giving it to him the day of and making sure he knows its for "his eyes only"!!  :)

I'm pondering this. May end up getting him a record player which he's wanted for a long time. Other thoughts were nice, polarized sunglasses since his are getting beat up right now, or a nice watch.

We're doing the legal this on Oct 29th - also all business, no kiss, no rings. I'll probably wear jeans. We picked up the license yesterday - kind of a surreal feeling! 

 

I went for my (almost) last fitting today! I pick up the dress next weekend, if all goes well! Slowly crossing things off the never-ending "to do" list!

So it is technically Sunday now and I am getting married today!  It feels so odd because I feel the weight of the commitment that I am about to make but there isn't all of the hoopla of a big wedding.  I left work on Friday with just a few people knowing what was going to happen and I will return on Monday as if nothing has changed.  It is all so weird.

 

On Thursday I took my bridal portraits with the photographer that is coming to Mexico with us... below is the teaser picture he sent me Thursday night:

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
