Well my older brother is marrying us, and we are getting him a gift card to a nice restaurant. Him and his fi (who is a bm) love to go out to eat, so I figured it would be something nice for them.

Maybe you could get him tickets to a classic car show, or maybe a classic car model if he likes to do those.

We’re having a dear friend marry us next weekend (crazy it’s so close!). I want to get her a nice gift, and my mom and I are thinking about what would be appreciated. We already bought her plane ticket to the wedding and are paying for some of her B & B. I want to find a lovely, classy gift that doesn’t break the bank since we’re already paying much more than if we were hiring an officiant.

Our friend married us, and we ended up giving him a signed first edition of his favorite book as a gift.

If you friend drinks, a nice bottle of scotch is always (IMO) a nice gift, or some other nicer liquor. What about a gift certificate for a nice restaurant? Or maybe tickets to a classical concert, since he plays French horn?

My cousin is marrying us and since he is a Pastor, we are getting him a really nice pen and pencil set. FI has been trying to find him a new vow book, since his is antiquated, but they are hard to find.

My godfather will probably be marrying us. He’s a true Virginia gentleman, so we’ll probably get him some nice scotch or burbon.

I’d get him a gift. We got our friend a necklace a few weeks after she agreed to take on the job, and then we sent her flowers the day after the wedding.

My Fiance’s Uncle is a Catholic Priest and will be marrying us. It is custom in the catholic church to give a stipend of at least $100.00. But we have also decided to pay for his flight.

Def get him a gift.

Our officiant was my aunt so I got her some awseome and kinda luxury beauty products (cost me a little bit of money but deemed worth it) that was easy for her to take on the plane back to her home city. A gift voucher would have been useless as she is from a differant state and a really nice card 🙂

Our officiant will be a good friend of ours… and we will either get her and her man (who met at our house!) a gift certificate to a good restaurant, or do a donation to the group (FI is pagan, he is high priest, she is the high priestess). Actually… we will end up doing both I’m sure 🙂

My MOH’s boyfriend is marrying us and we got him a gift certificate to a nice restaurant by their new home.  I think that’s nice for someone of any age.

And, yeah, guys totally don’t get the gift giving thing. 🙂

A family friend is marrying us (she is a Reverend) and I hadn’t thought about this yet so I am glad you spurred the brain process! I am thinking probably a gift certificate to a restaurant.  Her daughter is one of my BM’s so I will ask her what or where.
