heh…when I saw the title of your post, I was going to suggest that Mr Corn and I exchanged gifts while sitting on our bed right after the wedding…but somehow, I don’t think that would work in this case 🙂

I say give it to him now.  You are more than a year away from your wedding and I am assuming just leaving it in your garage for a year won’t do good things for the car.

That sounds really fun. You should drive it up there one day when he least expects it and surprise him!

wow! thats a great gift! I was thinking of getting my fiance, um, cufflinks. haha

i would drive it down ahead of time to surprise him. or wait until after the honeymoon and have it in his driveway for when you return. i wouldn’t give it to him at the reception because wouldnt he want to drive it immediately?? and that means leaving the reception. Could make for some great pics though!

Wow.  Yeah, I was maybe going to go with a new dress watch or something like that.  I was thinking of giving it to him that morning, so he could wear it that day.  Does he not ever come up to visit you?  If it sits and waits won’t he discover it?  I think you maybe have to give it to him early somehow.

My sister once bought me a really nice fleece jacket for my birthday, and when I unwrapped it there was a pack of gum in the pocket – she had been wearing it off and on, trying to decide whether to actually keep it herself and get me something else.  While I guess I won out, as I did get the jacket, I’m not sure you can drive it around FOR A YEAR and then give it to him…  Also not sure how good of an idea it is for it to just sit, although you could ask a mechanic.

Yay…lucky FI!  This is what my Fiance did, he bought me a car too but then counted it as an early wedding gift, Christmas, birthday and Valentine gift for the year. I think he was really relieved that he didn’t have to think about getting me gifts for the rest of the year but I’m happy to have the car now rather than have to wait! 

I think you should drive it down and show up and surprise him with it now instead of letting it sit for a year.  Cars lose value over time and getting it now would be a sweeter deal.  You’re probably going to get the same reaction from him now as you would if you gave it to him on your wedding day.

*Taps foot impatiently and twiddles my thumbs waiting for a car*.

I am sorry but I love the idea of doing the whole car-towing thing at the wedding. LOLLLLLL.

i like the car towing idea ALOT. but then u should wait and get the car closer to the wedding, since it is a year away.

Besides, HOW COOL IS THAT!? I’d want it now! LOL.
