We’re not but if nobody buys the craft beer making set off the registry I’m buying it for his bday.

Nope, we’re considering the honeymoon our gift to each other.  Although since we are moving in together a week before the wedding, I’m considering purchasing a print of one of his favorite art pieces for the office.

We didn’t exchange gifts.  I always thought that the gift to each other is the wedding band.

I feel like we already spend so much on weddings, we don’t need to keep adding to the list of stuff we are supposed to buy.

We talked about it and ultimately decided to skip it. Basically, I said I’d probably get him a nice watch and he said he’d get me some earrings and it was sort of like “welp, we really don’t need either of those things…”  We’re going to write notes to each other instead and have them delivered to the other’s getting ready room.

aprilbrandi15 :  My best friend did that for her husband when they got married 3 years ago and he loved it and so did she, she said she felt totally comfortable and sexy.

Regarding your OP, it is very common in my circle to do this, I know my Fiance is getting me diamond earings/bracelet with my moms help as well and I plan on getting him a nice watch engraved on the back with something like Together Forever and our wedding date.

We will be exchanging gifts – I have already purchased a piece of art by  Ruben Ireland for him. He hasn’t purchased anything for me yet but I’m thinking of suggesting a charm for me to wear on the wedding day, or something from a huge craft fair we are going to next weekend.

We did exchange gifts. Not needed, but it was something we wanted to do and we are gift people. 🙂 I gave my husband a boudoir mini album. Our wedding photographer was able to give me a great deal. He gave me a Dreamlines sketch of my dress and his suit. We each loved each other’s gifts, so it was a perfect fit. Good luck in your search!

We did as we were both so excited about celebrating each other that day. I sent him to his family’s with a package which he was to open that morning. And he left something for me at home. We phoned each other that morning to open our presents. His to me was a record player with a bunch of my favourite records. He had posts it on them with different “for when you feel…” on them.

I made him a scrap book of us, a pair of cufflinks with the date of our wedding which he wore that day and got us hot air balloon (something he always wanted to do) tickets for our honeymoon.

aprilbrandi15 :  Something I sort of would like to do for my fiance, as a wedding gift, is have a boudoir shoot and have it made into a boudoir photo book for his eyes only. I go back and forth between wondering if it is silly or not, but I think it, when done properly, can be tasteful.

Fiance is the one who really wanted the big wedding, so I told him I got him $25k worth of wedding crap!

We are definitely going to do gifts the day of our wedding. This is mostly because we are just big gift people in general and like to try to out-do each other 🙂 Ha! I am going to most likely get him a nice watch, and he will probably get me a piece of jewelry to wear, depending on what I need.

aprilbrandi15 :  We gave each other “morning gifts” (i.e. gifts exchange the morning after the wedding) according to the old Finnish custom. I gave him a pair of cufflinks made from old Finnish currency, so a small gift rather than anything really costly.
