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! 

              (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

              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!!!
