We had a two year engagement, so during that time we made two big purchases. He upgraded my engagement ring setting, and I bought him a new laptop. We counted those as our wedding gifts to each other.
We will just be writing each other a letter to open while we are getting ready that day 🙂

No. Not necessary at all.

i brought the idea up since i’d heard it so many times on the bee and hubby was like, why would we do that? we’re already spending so much money? and i agreed. it seemed unnecessary after we were already buying new outfits/accessories, etc

Fiance spent a lot on the ring which I consider the best present ever, and I just don’t feel like its necessary to add one more thing to the long list of all we have to do for the wedding. As others have mentioned, I may do a boudoir album-although I am so paranoid someone will find it! We need to get a safe in the house, lol

I’ll probably get a small surprise gift for him. I don’t plan to discuss it with him, or expect a present in return, it’s just something nice to do 🙂

I’m giving a gift… it is actually quite expensive ($150 watch) but I got it for like $50 on ebay… I was so happy with it I got my dad one too lol
I think that if both agree gifts aren’t your thing, that you shouldn’t feel pressured into buying them.

Um, we talked about it a little bit and since we will be in a house by then I will be buying a little female Scottish Terrier for him. We have a male now and LOVE LOVE LOVE him, but he really wanted a female. I don’t know what he is getting me, but I think I will ask to start having babies asap! lol I know this seems a little weird but by that time we will have lived together for 6 years so there will be a very short “honeymoon” phase, I will be 29 by then, and I have a very strict done with having kids by 35 rule. (It used to be 25 but that didnt exactly work out lol) Plus we want a large family (4-6 kids) so we will need to get a-moving quickly.
