    We discussed it and we are buying each other gifts for the wedding day, in addition to our rings. It won’t be a surprise though. We both picked out what we wanted. He wanted a nice watch. I wanted a pair of Louboutins (to wear with my reception dress). However, we have money for these additional expenses, so we decided to do it. I think that if our budget was tight, we would have decided against it and wait until our anniversaries down the road for such an superfluous gift.

    I haven’t talked to him about it…but I’m sure we will. I plan on giving him a gift, but don’t necessarily expect one. Even a sweet note or card with flowers would be cute.

    we decided not to get each other anything and save our money for things we wanted to do on the honeymoon but im sentimental and couldnt give him nothing so i bought this bottle with a cork in it from michaels and wrote him a letter to open before the ceremony – message in a bottle type thing – i also  gave him a jar full of paper and each peice had a reason why i love him.

    I definitely want us to give eachother gifts on the wedding day, along with heartfelt cards.  I have no idea what to get him though!

    @yellowlace: We did. But they were simple gifts well within our means.

    I got him cufflinks that had “314” engraved on them. 314 is pi for inifinity and also happens to be the # of the firts apartment we lived in together (he has a physics degree)


    He gave me a book made up of all the emails and facebook posts over the last 3.5 years of our relationship. (pictures too!)


    With each gift we gave each other a letter as well.Which was what i wanted more then the present!

    We did.  I gave him his gift the week of the wedding since he said mine wouldn’t be ready until after.  It’s been almost 6 weeks and mine’s still being made!  No idea what it is. 

    Instead of a gift you could get each other cards.  I think those are so sweet.

    We had originally planned and budgeted for gifts but as the time got closer and we went over budget we decided not to do gifts. I didn’t get him anything, but he sent me a dozen red roses that morning.

    I will probably give him something simple and meaningful… we haven’t talked about it really, so idk if he is getting me anything. He is paying for everything, that is enough of a gift for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    My wedding day was also my birthday.  However, NotFroofy and I decided not to exchange presents that day.  Having each other was the best present possible, anyway.
