Hi there 🙂
So I wanted some advice from someone who isn’t my bridesmaid – as wonderful as she is – but I wanted to know how insane I’m being and if it’s just the stupidest idea ever.
Basically, we’re getting married aboard and very late in the afternoon. He’s going to be at golf or the beach all day while I’m at the resort so instead of just getting him one present, I have this plan to ask his friends to give him a different gift every hour. So far the gifts are pretty small – socks filled with sweets, cufflinks with cameras and cigars. Maybe breakfast for him and his Dad if I can work out how to do that!
Is it silly? I feel really silly and keep talking myself out of it. Tell me if it is please please!

It completely depends on your relationship. If he’s used to getting gifts like this in that way then sure go for it. I know my husband wouldn’t enjoy it at all, but only you know how your Fiance will react.

I think only you would know if this is something your Fiance would like..
I personally think it’s a little much though.

Another vote for a bit much. why not get him one big present, instead of lots of little ones?

I wouldn’t trust guys to do this properly. After the first gift, i could see the other guys handing the remainders over to get it over with. Sorry.

It’s not silly, but I think it might be a little unrealistic for what’s going on that day. It’s crazy hectic! But it really depends on how your day is going to go. If literally nothing else is going on and you think his friends would be able to handle that, go for it.

I think this is something that a lot of women would love, but I don’t know about a guy.

I agree that the guys might sabotage it, not out of cruelty necessarily, just because it is a bit of a faff. Also your fiancé may feel self-conscious receiving all this in full view of his mates. I’d let him be in the moment with his friends for those last hours as a batchelor.
It’s a sweet thought but might not translate as well as you’d like in reality.

Hmm… if you really want to go thru with the idea… You could wrap them all up and have him open them himself at every hour….LOL but gift it to him all at once.. I think it’s a sweet gesture personally, but guys are less sentimental 😛 If you two have that same type of thinking then why not 🙂

The idea is a good one if it is something that you know he will appreciate. I gave my husband one gift, a cologne lol As silly as that sounds he refused to spend too much money on a good cologne. I am not a fan of them but I would always see him smelling them and settling for the “cheaper” ones when we would go shopping. I figured that for that one day he should get something he really wanted and would make him feel good so I got him the cologne! He loved it and was actually complimented on it the day of the wedding 🙂 As long as it is meaningful I say do it!

I’d make it some kind of game! As in him having to figure a riddle out for every gift or something! Sounds totally fun and cute!!!! I’d do it!!!! 🙂
