Looking for a quirky present for my comic book geek fiance. I was thinking maybe there might be a tie or cufflinks out there. . .superman or Iron Fist or Batman. I don’t know where to look and i still want it to be weddingy. Has anyone else got a partner with a love of something video game/comic book that they are trying to incorporate into the day?

FutureMrsGeek: There’s lots available out there. You can get superhero cufflinks on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/market/superhero_cuff_links
One way to surprise the groom is to have the groomsmen wear a superhero shirt under their dress shirt, if they are able to put these on without the groom being aware. you can gift the groom his shirt for a wedding day gift to open before the wedding.
The guys could also wear superhero sox
They are available from http://www.thinkgeek.com
and lots of other websites- just Google

Hah you could be marrying my FI he is all about the comics! We are getting comic book boutonnières from etsy which are amazing and I’m getting him a comic book tie clip – etsy is your friend! But look earlier if you’re in the uk like me as postage can take a while most of the really good stuff IMO is from the US

He might like any comics, but if he’s a Marvel fan, you should look for Spider-Man, X-men (ie Wolverine), the Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk)… Those guys. Batman and Superman are DC. Just fyi. 😉

I don’t know if you’ve gotten your FI a wedding band yet, but have you thought about a nerdy wedding band? You can find some that are quite tasteful.
I know you said Marvel but these are just some examples of what’s out there. (:

Sounds like he’s a DC fan if those are the superheroes he likes. Here’s some Batman cuff links that are pretty subtle. http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/de04/

On this site a day and I am already in love. Thanks so much, gorgeous bridettes! Many great ideas!! Showed my fiance Etsy last night and he thought it was amazing. We already bought his wedding band and I think its a shame I didn’t consider a super hero one til now cus I think he would have really liked it. Might keep it in mind for a christmas present upgrade though! Clearly, I do not know the difference between DC and Marvel. . .I do buy him comics but the guys at Forbidden Planet just put things in my hand and laugh at how crap I am!

While not exactly a present- if you’d like a cute little surprise for your FI- you could get a nerdy garter set.

Just double check with him to make sure he wants something fun like that for his wedding look. Mine loves comics and video games, but when I asked if he’d want some fun cuff links or socks, the answer was a resounding ‘hell no’. He said that he never has a chance to go full formal, and he wants to for the wedding. Men!

My FI is the same way with comic books and superheros. we are doing the superhero shirt under the tux for the pictures like julies1949: posted. the socks are a cute idea too! we are also doing superhero action figure boutonniere. in stead of flowers they have a mini action figure. every groomsman has their own special superhero. I hope this helps.
