I’d check their registry. If they haven’t told you about one, there’s a good chance you can find it by entering one or both of their names at weddingchannel.com (I think you need the wedding date, too). As far as what to spend, I’d go by what you can afford–I aim to spend $50-100 on most gifts unless I am especially close to the couple, but many people will spend more (or less)!

Spaniel – I think this guy IS the groom trying to buy a gift for HIS bride for the wedding.
I think most girls would be happy with jewelry! And a mushy card. But you probably know your bride the best and know what she likes! Welcome to the hive!

Awe – I love that you are coming here for advice!!!!
Anything that will be sentimental! Jewelry is wonderful, if you have an inside joke that would be cute too. It all depends on your budget no bride wants their groom to spend extra money if they don’t have it and so if you are a budget conscious groom a nice letter would be a favourite of mine.
Your bride is lucky to have you!

I agree that jewelry is a popular choice. I think it’s really nice to have something keep-sakey as a gift from your husband on your wedding day. And a love letter/card is nearly mandatory!

Jewelry is probably your best bet.

I personally would love an awesome jewelry box. (But I’ve been asking for one for years.)
I like sentimental gifts. Anything you (as the groom) put thought into, will go a long way. Something with an inscription or something that’s reminiscent of your meeting or first date… Think with your heart and not your head. 🙂

I think earrings that she can wear for your big day would be sweet! The price range is totally up too you! I spent $500 on my groom’s gift, I thought it was a lot, but I still bought it anyway.
I agree with mandalynn about the mushy card!!
Ps. I think its sweet that your on here asking!! Your friend is VERY SMART!!

haha yea i didnt know where to go…but a friend suggested i post here…didnt even know this place existed!!!
I figured I would get the answer of jewelery. See I’m the type that likes most of my gifts to have meaning. I think it does make a difference. However, after almost 7 years together it becomes harder and harder to keep getting sentimental things haha.
As far as the jewelery…anything more specific ideas? I just want to make things perfect for her! I figure I only have one shot to do it right…so I might as well go for it right? As far as the money…its only money right? Arent men supposed to spoil there woman???

OMG…your soon too be MRS. is a very LUCKY woman!! But truthfully every woman loves jewelry!! I’m still all about the earrings!! It can be meaningful regardless bc she’ll always remember that she got it as a wedding gift!
Or you can get her a peice of jewelry with a monogram of her new initials and your wedding date, like a Tiffany charm bracelet! Seeing her new monogram on her wedding day will make it even more exciting!!

I’d say earrings or a bracelet. Extra points if you can have a friend of hers who has seen the dress help you pick out something she can wear on the big day! She’s a lucky girl! 🙂

Locket. I would go with a locket. If you want to be extra mushy, tell her it is to put the pictures of your future together in. Of all of the jewelry my mom has, she treasures the locket my dad gave her the most.

Jewelry, something that she can get a lot of use out of like diamond earrings, a nice watch, etc.

I agree with everything said here.
A nice charm bracelet with her new initials/ wedding date or a locket with something sentimental inside (maybe a pic of you on your first date/etc.) would be gorgeous and something that can be cherished forever and for many generations. I have my grandmother’s locket that my grandfather gave her when her proposed to her which has a photo of them on their first date which I love, and I will be pasisn gon down to my future children.
