I’m debating giving my fiancé a gift on the wedding day. How many of you will be doing this and what kind of gift?

    We didn't. We spent enough on the wedding and the honeymoon. We figured that was enough of a gift for each other. One thing I've seen done is people writing letters to each other to read before the wedding.

    I am planning to give a small gift to my fiance! I am getting him a musical card that will play a specific song when he opens it (I'm picking a song that's meant to make him laugh), as well as a wallet engraved with a sweet quote.

    I found a Groupon for boudoir pictures. I gave him those and a watch box. I didn’t spend a lot. He didn’t give me anything.
    We got married, that’s gift enough!

    I got him cologne and he got me perfume (we discussed this beforehand, haha!). It's a practical gift, and we'd each then have a scent to associate with the day.

    We also wrote each other letters, but that was part of our ceremony process.

    We didn’t, we told each other that we’d rather save that money and put it towards our honeymoon.

    We were thinking about it. I'd maybe get him cologne, a t-shirt, socks and sunglasses. Nothing too crazy.

    I agree with this. Most couples in reality consider their vows to be a huge gift. And don't give anything beyond that.

    We’re getting a king sized bed and calling that our wedding present to each other!

    I figured I was giving him me, and that was enough for one day. When he reached inside his jacket, and pulled out a fancy card, i thought, oh no! But it turned out not to be a gift to me. Inside was a CD of some of our favorite slow and romantic songs to dance to. So we did, at 3:30 in the morning, happy our suite was over the greenhouse/ solarium and not someone trying to sleep. He had a nice idea, something to share.

    I’m not sure if he’s giving me anything. I just booked & paid for a boudoir shoot. My lingerie should be in tomorrow. I’m super excited about doing this!

    We're skipping this. There's a lot of pressure from the wedding industry to spend money on all these extra things. The wedding, honeymoon and commitment for life is enough for us.

    I don't see it as necessary. More and more pressure from our society and the industry for us to spend more money.

    We are just going to do a card or a nice note. At least I am (sometimes FH says he isn't doing anything then surprises me). We are already spending enough on the wedding day, so we figured we don't really need to get each other any kind of gift. The gift of our love is enough for us!

    I’m giving my fiancé a nice watch on our wedding day. It’s one I wanted to get him for Christmas in 2019, but couldn’t afford, so I had to save for it.

    I purchased smaller meaningful gifts for my fiance. I'm gifting him something that respresents our past (a storybook of all our memories from when we were dating), present (cufflinks for him to wear the day of the wedding), and future (leather passport cover to use in all our future adventures). All in all I think it cost like $150 total - so definitely not a lot, but still meaningful.

    I did. I personalized a baseball with our hashtag (a portmanteau of our last names). It's now in a case on our TV stand.

    DH did not, which I knew he wouldn't. Mine was a surprise for him.
