    Yes, buy him one and give it to him, no matter if he gives you anything or not! : (20 votes)

    Yes, buy a gift, but hang on to it, and see if he gets anything for you first! : (0 votes)
    No, he's probably not going to remember, and you only have 36 hours till you walk down the aisle! : (3 votes)

    BE BLUNT! Ask him if he's getting you anything, so that you know if you need to go shop or not! : (11 votes)

    Whether or not you buy him a present shouldn’t depend on whether he gets you one. You should just do what you want and what feels right.

    I know this idea is kinda late well not really but you might be able to do it yourself. for my gift i am going to take some sexy pictures. there is a name for it but i have no idea what it is called. my mom did some for my dad for his birthday and they were done so beautifully and not tacky or tasteless at all. she was wearing his work shirt it is a uniform so it had his name on it. i wanted to do something like that. he doesnt have a uniform but wears suits and ties to work so i wanted to wear his jacket and tie and thats it! i cant wait!

    I say buy him one if you want to.  Don’t let whether or not he gives you one come into play (I mean what if he’s thinking the same thing??). 

    It’s not necessary, gifts are supposed to be thoughtful gestures, remember?

     

    Good luck at your wedding!!!

    If you have something in mind to give him, I think you should get it regardless of whether he gets you something or not. No reason to give a gift just to do it.

    And no, my fiance and I are not exchanging gifts. We’re already spending a fortune on the wedding and the only thing he wants is a PS3 which seems inappropriate as a wedding gift. haha

    This was the one thing that I was surprised my Fiance was actually like, “Yes, I know I’m supposed to give you a present on the wedding day”.  I forget how it got brought up, probably making him watch a stupid wedding show or something.

    Even a small gift and note that way he doesn’t feel bad if he doesn’t get you something.  Maybe just a small momento to remember the day by.

    I think a little something could be nice. I told Fiance that I’m buying him a wedding gift, but didn’t tell him what…I’m letting him stew on it a bit 😉 Because I told him, he may have something for me but may not. If you’d like to get him something, do! He’ll definitely appreciate it.

    How about taking his wedding band to the mall to get it engraved inside as a surprise, I did it the other day, costed me $17 at a jewelry kiosk and took the guy 15 minutes to do it, I just got our names and our wedding date engraved in it, he will be so surprised on our wedding day! Good luck! Barnes and Noble has books you can fill in to tell him all the reasons why you love him, I think its called 101 reasons why I love you, its a cute idea
