We didn’t. His gift was getting to marry me 🙂

We talked about doing gifts, but he was not into the idea.  Instead, we wrote each other letters that we each read the morning of the wedding.  I got the sentimental wedding token I wanted, and we saved $$

We’re not doing gifts. It just seems unecessary to us.

No, not necessary. I am only doing it because I found a great groupon for pin up photos (although I will need to invest in A LOT of booze to do it).

The gifts don’t have to be expensive or lovey dovey. It can be anything from taking poll/lap dancing classes and really rocking his world on the wedding night to new cuff links to a personalized flask to new sunglesses for the Honeymoon. Set a budget and be creative. It should be fun, not stressful. If it is stressful then cut it off of the to do list.

i didnt even bring up gifts with my hubby, i knew he thought we were spending too much on the wedding. there was nothing he would want and my gift was my e-ring!  plus his b-day was 10 days after the wedding, so any good gift ideas i got were going to that!

We didn’t do gifts either. We treated ourselves on our Honeymoon.

We just had this discussion and he thinks it is incredibly stupid and said he is not getting me anything.  I was planning on getting him boudoir pics and the private dinner on the beach package for our honeymoon. Now I don’t know.

No, we’re not doing gifts for the wedding.  We aren’t really into the gift giving for any occasion be it valentines, christmas, or even birthday.  We’re spending enough on the wedding and our new house… a forced gift would just be a waste to us.

@satsumaflower: watch groupon. I see a lot for photographers offering portrait sessions. I have found that if you ask they will sub a portrait session for boudoir photos because they are technically portrait sessions.

We aren’t doing gifts because we are already spending enough on the wedding.

We didn’t think so, we bought a joint gift instead!  We both really wanted and needed a camcorder, so we bought one for our wedding gift to each other!
