- Wedding: May 2021
My boyfriend would really enjoy a personalized knife and my brothers would too (if it’s a good quality one).
I’ve received a plain, monogrammed long button down shirt to get ready in (blech), a monogrammed robe (just last month and nicer but idk when I’ll actually use it again?), day-of jewelry (not my style at all either time).. No ‘great’ gifts to speak up, from 3 brother weddings and 1 friend.
My boyfriend received an engraved set of tumblers and a decanter all with his initials from his sister’s wedding and he thought it was GREAT.
My ex received an engraved Yeti cup from his brother’s wedding and also loved it.
My brother last month gave his groomsmen engraved Yetis too (my family is big on their cups and we’re in the city they originated from) including engraved lidded smaller cups for my two nephews. I don’t recall what they said though – whether it was tailored for the recipient or the wedding date/role..
Basically this is what I got in January:
Cottony robe – maroon with maroon lace though, and monogrammed. However I paid $85 for my dress and we were on our own for hair and makeup ($75 each so I opted out). I think paying for our hair or dress would’ve been more helpful, but the robe is pretty cute. Maybe I’ll take it on my next vacation or something? I barely got to wear it for 10 min the day of for pics but it seemed okay.
