    I’ve only ever heard of exchanging rings and so that is all we did. I don’t see that there is a need to give each other anything else. You’re already giving them your hand in marriage and thanking them in a speech later. Plus the wedding has already cost an arm and a leg in most cases.

    We got eachother very nice gifts the morning of the wedding.  It was a sweet “surprise” that helped me personally calm some nerves and feel great about the day.  Darling Husband did not want to spend the night before togther, or see each other until we met at the end of the aisle, so it was nice to have that gift delivered in the morning to know he was thinking of me and still on board with the wedding (not that I ever had doubt, but I was dying to know how he was feeling that morning since he didn’t want any contact).

    If you want to do it, it doesn’t have to be big.  Could just be a handmade card, key chain, etc….something that represents you guys.  I got Fiance a signed jersey of his favorite football player (and a few little things) and he got me the Kate Spade “I do” necklace and some other little things.  Was perfect for us.

    We each got a card. He bought me a STEELERS jersey… what can I say, I love sports. I bought him a Bible with his name engraved. The gifts were both special in their own way and didn’t cost much.

    We exchanged gifts. Just small things. I gave him an embroidered hankercheif and he gave me an engraved Christmas ornament with our wedding date on it (I have a thing for ornaments!). And then we gave each other small private gifts on our wedding night as well.

    We didn’t exchange gifts on the wedding day because we didn’t see each other beforehand, and I didn’t think it made sense to do it after the wedding. Anyway, I didn’t think we’d have to get gifts because I didn’t think he’d know about the tradition. But his boss told him he had to get me a gift! So then I had to get him something too.

    It is really common but we won’t be doing it.  We just don’t want too spend more money. Our gifts will be our vows =)

    We didnt exchange gifts per se.  I bought him something.  He forgot.  He was also super sick the morning of and didnt see it on the table for him.  I bouhgt him cufflinks that he liked with the intent that he would wear them that day and keep them as a memento of the day.

    I heard about it on here and think it’s a cute idea, so I brought it up to Fiance. I have something chosen for him, and told him what I would like. We’ll see what happens closer to the wedding.

    I don’t know how common it is but I see it in a LOT of blogs – gifts and letters before the wedding.  I am definitely doing it, I have to remind Fiance about it, though LoL.
