What are you (or did you) Giving Your Fiance for a Wedding Present?

Recommended Posts

(if you are) i know not everyone does this tradition but i really want too and am looking for some new ideas!

 

some of the ideas i have now are:

  • really nice watch
  • handmade box with 50 little folded pieces of antique paper, each one with a place around the world we haven't been and can travel to together over the next 50 years of our marriage
  • art deco diamond and platinum cufflinks
  • Boudoir photos

I am torn on this as well. We keep going back and forth about giving each other anything.

I do not want to do the boudoir pictures because what does he do with them after? Keep them in a photoalbum that he can't show anyone? I am just a little confused about that part, so while I think they look amazing, I don't think its really practical or something he will really care about.

He is big into music, so I could get him some new instruments or something music related, but I can't bring that along, so when do I give it to him.

I am more lost than you, so I am totally no help. How about you help me.

I was going to ask the very same question...

Mike is obnoxious in that anything he wants, he buys. So, every holiday, birthday, etc there is NOTHING to get him. He already has a really nice watch (that he bought himself last year!). I don't want to do boudoir photos, so I have no clue what to get him. Of course, I already told him what I want - the Coach Legacy leather satchel:)

Can't wait to hear what all you girls got/are getting your FIs...

Ok so Christine and Ann, how many times does your DH look at them now? I guess in the back of my mind I can't see them looking at them very often. If that's the case do you still think it was a good gift?

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
