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

Recommended Posts

keith collects watches, so i thought about that, but the watches that he wants are a few thousand $$$ and i can't afford that...so i'm thinking a really good watch winder (like $1k) or this driving experience that he's talked about (but apparently i wasn't listening) - not the nascar one, it's like ferrari or something.

 

did anyone get their FI an engagement present after you got the ring?

I don't think we are getting each other gifts.. we are paying for the wedding ourselves so that doesn't leave much in the way of spare cash. Plus we live together so we have everything already that we need.. however if a super duper awesome idea came to me I might be inclined to get it for him anyways..

I'm getting FI this necklace. He wanted some MAN jewelry. Haha whatever that means, but I think this qualifies.

Am I the only one who didn't exchange a gift or take pics for my FI/hubby? We decided to spend the $$ on other people and not to buy each other gifts. We gave each other the free stuff - love, lovemaking, and devotion . . . lol. We're saps for love but don't do too well with tradition.

i'm not a gift giver in general - i mean, i love giving gifts when the mood strikes me, like i see something i totally want to get someone, but not when i "have" to (birthdays, holidays, etc.).

I'm thinking we may skip the gifts because (1) he's not one to even know he's supposed to get me something (2) we're paying for this wedding all by ourselves (3) we have everything we need. BUT, that being said, I really want the Coach Legacy Leather Satchel for my gift blush2.gif

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
