I’ve read on this board that many couples exchange gifts on their wedding day. I’ve never heard of this and asked a couple of married friends if they did this and they all said no. Perhaps it’s a regional thing. Do you plan to get your groom a gift on your wedding day? Will he give you one?

We are exchanging gifts the night before the wedding (day before may be too nuts). I think the one for me will be a necklace…for him? No idea yet as apparently he already has what I’d thought to get. Hoping inspiration will kick in.

We’re exchanging gifts the day of. I’m pretty sure mine will be jewelery and I’m tossing between a really nice watch and a PS3 for him!

We’re exchanging gifts although I’m a bit sketchy on the timeline. I got him some nice navy monogrammed cufflinks – then he changed from a navy to a grey suit so there went that present! He reckons he’s gonna give me a puppy, but I don’t think that’ll be til well after the wedding.

neither of us are like OMG we have to do gifts, but for me, he’s upgrading my center diamond in my e-ring about a month before, and Im thinking of getting him a nice bulova watch or something to that effect, I think he knows though what I want to get him…oops didn’t keep it much of a surprise!

We did gifts the night before at the rehearsal dinner (at my parents’ house).
I got him custom cufflinks from Etsy.com and a new dressier watch with an engraving. His gift to me was to hire a genealogist to trace my family back in Ireland. (I love the show ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ and all that kind of stuff) We just got the report and met the researcher last week – it was very cool. :0)

I might send him a little card or note or something but I doubt he is planning anything. My fiance doesnt really know about little details of weddings (he’s such a guy) but he is very good at suprising me when I don’t expect it

@AnamCara – that is such a thoughtful gift – what a guy!

We were in the middle of paying off credit cards and with all of the other wedding expenses, we decided not to exchange gifts and honestly, we were both fine with that. Our birthdays were two months after the wedding and we gave eachother gifts then. I have several friends and family members that DID exchange wedding gifts with their spouses. I think it’s just up to the couple and either way you decide to go is fine.

I think we would if we had the money but we’re so stretched with the wedding and all, I think its better if we forgo this idea 🙂

We’re exchanging gifts although we still have to set a budget. I know he wants a Tag watch and I told him I want tahitian pearls.

I bought him an iPad 🙂
Honestly, I don’t really feel like I need a present…
but the wedding money saving has been hard on us both
and I know he could use a nice
“We did it” present just for being a trooper

We bought each other wedding gifts, but we won’t be exchanging them on the day of the wedding (though I might send him a letter). I bought him a Homemedics back massager thing (it wasn’t cheap and he REALLY wanted it) and he bought me scuba diving lessons so I can get my certification.

We’re just going to exchange personal notes before the wedding. We’re not seeing each other before the ceremony so it will be nice to have exchanged some thoughts before we share the day with everyone else. :o) Neither of us is big on gifts, so the notes are perfect.
