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

One of the reasons why we're doing a DW is because it would be too hard for him to get married in the church without his dad presiding over the mass (his dad was part of the mass for all of his siblings when they got married). So I know he'll like having something of his dad real close to him during the ceremony....

 

this must a very sweet idea... i like it.

Hi Alyssa!

 

I ordered a custom pair of cufflinks for my (now husband) to wear at the wedding. One cufflink showed the coordinates of where we got engaged (at the Louvre in Paris) and the other one showed the coordinates of the Hotel where we were married (Excellence Riviera Cancun). A picture of them is below. He loved them! Good luck! angel2.gif

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

My FI is the hardest person in the world to buy for,  If he wants something he just goes and buys it!  This thread has given me some great ideas!

Hi futuremrstgun!

 

Believe it or not, it was http://www.cufflinks.com/! I was really nervous b/c I wasn't sure how they would necessarily turn out, but I loved them! They came in a really nice manly box too :) Hope that helps!!!

    • 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?
