@tynabee: I used Laurie Peacock as recommended by other Chicago Bees. It was one of her marathons. I brought my sister with and had hair & makeup done. It was a lot of fun.

It is tradition in our family to have a special knife to pass on (sorta like a wedding ring for the ladies, knife for the men.)  My dad still carries his Grandfather’s knife.  So, I got Fiance a damascus steel knife with a pearl handle that is dressy, and I know he will love it and sort of treasure it, probably pass it on.

We decided that before we left for our Destination Wedding, we would buy ourselves a really nice DSLR camera… that way we can begin capturing the moments of our life together (before we are back to being frugle and prepping for a new home/puppy/babies/etc.) 🙂

Does he drink? I’m getting the FH a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue, which he’s always wanted. It’s the gift that keeps on giving 🙂

@AlmostMrsG: That’s a great idea, my fiance’ drinks JW black b/c I think spending that kind of money on blue is insane, I may have to copy you!

I bought my husband personalized cufflinks from Anne Holman.

Anne uses antique maps to create cufflinks with any city or town in the world.

My husband was born and raised in Austin, TX and I’m from Las Vegas, NV. We met and fell in love in Vegas, then moved to Austin! So for his wedding gift, I gave him cufflinks – one with Austin and one with Vegas. He loves them!

I’m not sure yet, but my most recent thought is a saxophone. He’s never played, but has wanted to for some time and it’s one of those things he hopes to learn to do one day. He’d never in a million years buy it for himself, but I think I can put a note on it to the effect of making all of his dreams come true (but less cheesy). He didn’t like the idea of the boudoir pictures, unfortunately!
