Hey Hive! My fiance and I figured out all our special presents! You know, the ones for our parents, honor attendants, and my special gift for him!
****MR ROCKY POINT!!!! GO AWAY!!!!******
Sooooo…. first, for my dad, who is hosting the wedding at his home, in the yard with a tent and everything. (not hosting as in paying for everything, hosting as in actually hosting!) We just ordered him a very nice Hatteras Hammock with a stand and a wheel kit so he can easily move it for mowing, sun/shade, etc. I think he will really like this. Our original idea was a picnic table for the yard with an engraved plaque on the seat or something. but then we noticed he has a picnic table that is one year old! Ha 🙂 The hammock will also be for my stepmother.
For my stepmother, and also my Future Mother-In-Law – they are both getting a pandora-style bead for their bracelets. It is a little “admit one” tickt to remember our carnival-themed wedding.
For the Best Man, who is also Mr RP’s dad, he will get the groomsmen’s gift, as well as a sunset sailing cruise for him and Future Mother-In-Law in Boston or Newport!
And for my mom, a gift certificate to take a pottery wheel class with clay and tools included. She loves crafts and making things with her hands, and she loves pottery. She enjoys learning new skills, and is very artistic.
For my Stepdad, who has bult a coupld of things for the wedding, and just been very spportive in general, he is getting a center console cooler for his work van, stuffed with goodies, and a Jimmie Johnson t-shirt and hat. He loves Nascar, and is actually going to a race the day after our wedding!
For my Maid/Matron of Honor, I gpicked out a tiffany bracelet. the one with the links, and the heart charm that says “return to tiffany” I think she will be super stoked to receive such a classic piece of jewelry. She really is the best friend anyone could ask for. She loves bracelets more than necklaces “because then I can look at them when I wear them instead of only other people being able to appreciate them” Bingo!
Last, but vertainly notleast, Mr Repost himself. I toyed around with lots of ideas. He has a gorgeous watch already, which he never wears. i got him a new video game console and games for xmas last year. I wanted to get him a nice leather coat, but that will wait till this xmas, as our wedding is in July. A tattoo crossed my mind, but we plan to get tattoos together when we are on our honymoon anyways. SOOOOO, I got himan ipad and engraved it with a lyric form our first dance sone “Home is whenever I’m with you” and then underneath it, “You & Me 07.13.2012”
Well, what do you think?!??!? I’m excited:)
