- Wedding: October 2009
hi all . first post of many 🙂 Im getting married soon and i’ve been lurking here for a couple months now , im addicted i swear.
anyway just seeing what you are all doing for your bridal party gifts.
i need some help..
for the guys we are each getting them personalized money clips with 3 nice cigars wrapped up, then each a personal gift (i.e. R is getting slayer pub/shot glass set, J is getting a humidor) The girls are getting emergency kits, necklaces for the wedding, and something personal (M is getting a Dave Matthews Hoodie, J is getting a gift card to jasco to buy some scrubs) Now here it goes..
I need a gift idea for 2 of the guys, one is into the yankees and raiders and also my brother. the other C, is his brother and is into wine and massages haha and is kind of a handy guy.
I need gift ideas on 2 girls, B I worked with only for a few months but is a great friend, has 3 older kids, about 10 years older than me, has a great marriage really family oriented. My other is my bff and MoH- C, she is younger (23) and has 2 little boys, like me and is a Stay-At-Home Mom. I really want to get her an amazing gift because shes been a godsend thru this whole thing helping me gracilessly with everything.
Our Parents I need help with: My parents are divorced- so I need 2 seperate, my mom is a recent window from my stepdad, and my dad has a live-in girlfriend. His parents pretty much paid for most the reception (about 4500 worth) My dad put in 1000 too. So we really want to get them something extra special because they’ve been great and lost 500.00 towards our first venue (non refundable deposit, the place was horrible and in return i felt horrible) I am getting them a beatles blanket and beatles apron (his mom always wears one cooking) Any ideas .. or what did you get your parents.. each are getting hankercheifs engraved.
Flower Girls: My niece is not even 2 I have been getting her dora,princess stuff little by little and I wanted to get her a cute shirt or a cute pair of vans or something.. and the other flower girl is his niece who is 8 going on 14.. not into typical little girl things at all, any ideas on what to get her?
RG: My 2.5 year old is getting what else… all car things- he will be a happy boy the week of my honeymoon playing with it all.
Our Justice of the Peace is my boys childhood friend and actually an old co-worker of mine (small world huh?) he is in mortition school, and we are having a halloween-ish type wedding so we found a celeb death certificate book and a hearse watch.
For the groooom: Im ordering a darth vadar grooms cake (looooves star wars) Or maybe Gene Simmons cake (again looooves Kiss and we have alot of music stuff in our wedding), boudoir pictures of me wearing his bands tshirt and heels and one showing my married tattoo im getting. which is a pinup kissing a skeleton that says till death do us part, and Mrs (insert last name) with our wedding date, oh and poker themed cuff links for etsy. whew, hes spoiled!
any ideas on the blanks i have or what are you getting your wedding party.
ps sorry for being so long 🙂
