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?

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
