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

Recommended Posts

Schmoopies those socks are the best idea ever!! For myself, I would like absolutely anything that comes from his heart (I know, cheeesy!) and he writes the best cards... for him, I would like to make him a BD book, but I have no idea how I'll keep that a secret!!

 

I agree with Mrs. Griffiths- Is this something that the guys should know, or do we tell them? It's kind of silly to be like, OK we have to buy eachother something!!

I want the earrings that go with the necklace I will be wearing during the wedding.

I'm doing a BD album for him.

- I was thinking of getting him a watch... but I LOVE the embroidered socks idea!!! (Thanks da.shmoopies!)
I also want to do the pictures with our 'furbabies' holding signs that say: 'Will you marry our mommy today?'
Thanks amygirl! I'm getting mine from an Etsy seller (ErinBorges) if you wish to check them out for yourself.

I also don't really know what I want, except I'd really love a sweet card from him the morning of. For him, I'm really considering doing a BD album.

 

Da Shmoopies, I love your sock idea! Very cute!

 

And yeah, I don't know if a lot of guys know about this tradition. When we went to buy our wedding bands, the sales associate was talking about different possibilities of gifts to get one another. The FI had no idea lol.

I got him a BD book, which he loved. He agreed to hire a professional photographer at the last minute (after my begging, hehe), so that was my gift!

We actually talked about this last night, but I don't know what he is getting me.

 

I am doing a BD book for him.

 

My sister was married last year, and she got her hubby a nice watch.

from him, I would love a nice card and I've hinted at some diamond earrings! lol

 

I think I'll be getting him a new pair of Oakley sunglasses. He always wears these cheap things, so I think he would really appreciate that!

 

Btw, my FI had NO IDEA that we should buy each other gifts...lol MEN!!!! gotta love 'em cheesy.gif

I actually did a BD book for him, but I never actually gave it to him. I kind of got cold feet after I did it and now I dont really like it. It's still hiding at the bottom of one of my dresser drawers collecting dust. Hah.

 

I would have gotten him a watch, since he's a watch freak like most other guys are, but the turd bought himself yet another watch like a month before we left for the wedding. Gah. He always buys himself the exact present I was going to get him at birthdays and Christmas.

 

So in the end we decided not to get each other anything. I figured I was present enough for him... LOL

    • 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.
