@flowercrowns:  Yeah I agree, we will probably be setting a budget with our parents before doing a budget breakdown spreadsheet, so we know how much we can afford to allocate to each item. But we will be doing some saving of our own and pay for gifts and wedding bands ourselves. I would feel weird about our parents paying for our rings! If Fiance can manage to pay for my e-ring we can certainly manage to pay for our wedding rings!

I’m planning on getting an album of boudoir photos for him and maybe something small like a nice toiletry bag. 

He’s already told me he’s going to get me jewelery because, “I’m good at buying the shiny”

I started a little leather journal I bought off etsy, and wrote in it every day for 100 days before the wedding a new reason why I loved him and was marrying him. I thought it could be a good thing for us to look at when we are fighting/mad so we remember what brought us together. He gave me a diamond pave key necklace and told me that I would be the only one to get this, since I was the only one who had the key to his heart. I thought it was sweet – it didn’t matter that it was expensive, it was the thought behind it. =)

Fiance is paying for all of the rings, including his own. Yesterday we went and picked out special wedding day perfume/cologne and paid for each other’s. I think it’s nice because it wasn’t too pricey and now we have special smells that will remind us of our wedding and each other :). You both know each other better than anyone, so no one else can tell you what you “have” to give one another!

Sooo, I totally planned on getting DH a gift, and vice versa, but between the wedding planning and the honeymoon planning… we just didn’t. Haha. And we didn’t miss it one bit, either. We had a lot of fun with each other, then we went on an amazing honeymoon. I would say putting our money towards activities and such on our honeymoon was plenty enough for a gift.

“He” paid for both of our rings, but considering our finances have always been mixed (and are now combined completely), who paid was a little moot. There was more money in his account than mine at the time, so he paid for them.

BurlapnLace:  I got my Fiance a gift but it only cost like $40. I just got it because it is perfect for him not because i felt like i needed to. I got him (and all the guys in the wedding party) cuffliks.

I did a boudoir session in January and he will get the album sometime during our wedding week.  He is getting me pearls to wear on our wedding day.  He paid for my engagement ring, but we are paying for the bands together.  Marriage takes a team..no sense in “you pay for this, i pay for that” everything will be joined after the wedding!

My man is buying my wedding ring and I am buying his. Possibly little gifts to one another but nothing big. We are pretty tight on money.

FH’s gift will be my something new – its a bracelet to wear on my wedding day. I bought him a stylish pocket watch. He’s been eyeing for a long time and he’ll be able to wear and enjoy it on our wedding day.

I bought him a watch and some cologne, we shared the cost of our wedding rings.
