I plan on buying my groom a gift to be given to him while he is getting ready on our wedding day. I am thining about buying him a watch because I don’t have any other ideas but I am going to try to think of something to put in his card about our “time together”. Are you gving your groom a gift? If so, what?
I am sure my Fiance isn’t aware of this tradition so I think he will be pleasantly surprised.

Yes. I too am giving my fiance a watch (he is a watch lover). I have told him about the tradition – but, I don’t think he will actually do anything. My concern is that he will feel embarrassed if he didn’t know about the tradition – so I have made it a point to tell him (but also let him know that he doesn’t need to worry about getting something in exchange).

Yep! I’m having a photo shoot done (this weekend — eekkk!) and having a book made for Fiance. I think he’ll love it.
He knows about this tradition and he’s getting me something as well.

Fiance has always wanted a wing-back chair for his office. I’m going to purchase on and give him a card with a picture of the chair in it 🙂 It will be waiting at home for him when we get back from the wedding!

We paid for our wedding ourselves, so we considered that our gift. We aren’t gifty though – so one less expense that isn’t necessary the better! I would have gotten him a rolex though if money grew on trees – he’d enjoy that!

I made sure my fiance knew about this tradition, so we’ll be doing it =) I don’t want to see him before walking down the aisle, so we are either going to exchange our gifts the night before after the rehearsal dinner, or we’ll arrange for a member of the bridal party to deliver our gift to each other the morning of the wedding. I am voting for the first option (I want to be there when he gets it), but my fiance wants the second one (he wants me to open it right before the wedding and have the photog capture my reaction….so I’m really excited to see what it is!)

I’m doing a photo session as well and will give the album to Fiance on our wedding night. He knows I’m getting him something….I honestly don’t know if he’s getting me something….I hope so! I’ll have to talk to him about it.

We discussed this and have decided there’s no need. If money weren’t an issue, I’d probably get him a guitar (even though he already has a dozen!). But I think a wedding in Ireland is enough of a gift for the both of us!
