You are paying for the whole wedding or you and your Fiance are paying for it together without help from family?

I got mine a plush robe from Macys and comfy slippers

Blu-Ray of The Big Labowski ….. that’s it and it was on sale.  I’m moving on top of the wedding planning so there is no $$.

I have bought him a football shirt,  and will get him some much needed new trainers,  but thats it this year. we usually spend way more than that, but with the wedding and honeymoon  coming up,  cant afford to this year.although  the honeymoon is paid for  we still need to save for spending money.  and of course we have only paid deposits on wedding thisngs so that needs paying for too.  I wont be putting any of it on plastic,  so its cash all the way.

The year we were engaged, we didn’t do any gifts for ourselves. No birthdays, no Christmas, no Valentine’s day, etc. We figured the wedding was our gift for the entire year.

I vote “cook his favorite breakfast/meal”. Or maybe make one of the cheesy-but-cute coupon books.

We skipped gifts the Christmas we were engaged. We treated ourselves to a nice NYE instead (Dinner + Show).

We both agreed to not go too over the top this holiday season since we have big expenses we are saving for. Having said that, I’m going to get him some Ben Sherman items from their sample sale this week ; )

@MeganTacky2247: I’m paying for the wedding, in it’s entirety, as well.  I also pay for all our living expenses right now, as Fiance is out of a job.  (as a side note, he had a second interview last week and is waiting to hear back this week about it….keep your fingers crossed, cause we really NEED this!!!! end rant….)

Anyway, I got Fiance a pair of slippers, and I’m thinking of getting him a pair of jeans.  Other than that….I’m going to make some stuff, though I don’t really know what.  I have some picture frames around the house, and I was thinking of adding a bunch of pics of the two of us to hang up the stairwell (it’s free! and we don’t have any pics of the two of us around)…I have no other ideas Undecided
