Oh my gosh you ladies crack me up! It would be hilarious to look back on these conversations in 15 years when you're all old married ladies!

@acw271011 - Haha my DH says "pow right in the kisser to me" all the time while pretending to punch me.  He thinks he's being hilarious :blink:

 

@kcole123 - I would probably just find some watches online to show him in the price point, ask him casually what he thought and if he liked them, then order them.  My DH was pretty agreeable on everything but not if it meant he had to put in effort to go shopping or get things himself (lazy).  So for the most part I'd just show him things and he'd be like "yeah, great." Then when the credit card bill came, I just reminded him that he had agreed haha

 

We got our groomsmen Herschel gym bags (ravine duffel).  They were pretty cool looking and we got them at a discount on black friday.  My DH got himself one too b/c he liked it so much

@kcole123

 

So frustrating!  I would definitely agree with the rest of the ladies.  I very much agree with the point that was brought up that not only will they feel like it was an after thought if he gives his groomsmen a gift after, but it is also embarrassing and awkward for you.  I would hate to have hard feelings from the groomsmen on the wedding day.  Imagine how bad he will feel if he does eventually regret that he didn't get them anything. 

 

If it's the money that Is making him not want to spend right now, you could always try shopping at an outlet.  We discovered the Premium outlets and fossil has amazing sales.  50% off.  Our groomsmen got some really nice gifts from us and we managed to keep it on budget. 

Good luck with this one!  :)   I think you should stand your ground.

It took a while to convince mine that we even needed OOT bags. He said "why?" so I told him that it was just a thank you for people spending so much money to come to our wedding. Well, his response was "whatever, they're going on vacation, they're not doing this for us"  :blink:  What??! hahah Eventually I managed to convince him that while yes, it's a vacation, we're basically dictating where they're going so in a way they are doing it for us. Then he agreed to do OOT bags :P 

 

Juan can sometimes be a little rough around the edges when it comes to decorum but then he usually comes around. He never understands why some things we need to do, even if we don't want to, just to be polite :P .

@TinkerSofi

Holy crap they are alike. Nathan said that too...lol He comes across as being ungrateful for the things he says but deep down he appreciates people going. But in turn he thinks well it's their choice we didn't force them.

That's exactly what Juan thinks. I know what he says is usually coming from a good place, but not everyone might perceive it that way.
