Hey there :) I have a question about presents for the groom. Am I supposed to discuss with him what he wants? For example cufflinks or watch - how do I know that he won't buy it for himself? I'd have to tell him not to buy cufflinks or something hey - but then he'd know anyway ???? what are you all doing?

Hi you buy him something that you think he will really value but keep it a secret until he opens it :)

We're not doing presents because it's an added expense and the wedding is gift enough. I wasn't even aware groom gifts was a thing

I’m buying him a nice watch, I’ve been putting a bit away since we got engaged, he’s always wanted a really nice watch, so I’m seeing this as my opportunity to get him one 😊

We discussed it beforehand.
I was talking about jewellery to wear with my dress & he had to tell me he was planning to get me a necklace & earrings to wear on the day, so I didn’t go out & buy it myself lol.
I have no idea what they will look like, so it will still be a surprise

I did my husband a groom's box, which contained lots of little items.....a pair of socks so he didn't get cold feet, a watch so he wasn't late, a penny so I never leave him penniless etc etc. I also did a bridal boudoir photo shoot and had them made into a book which I put in with all the other items. He loved it x

He doesn't need a present, he's getting the best thing he could ever have... Marrying you.
If you want to do something nice for him then arrive at the ceremony on time, it's a long lonely wait up front

Why not Forget about the wedding ‘rule book ‘ and do what you want to do.

I didnt tell my husband and got my dad to help as suit fittings by making sure he had a shirt with cufflinks. Turns out he bought himself a pair so i just said you don't need those and he didn't question. I made a little box with surprise little gifts that didnt cost alot like his fave chocolate, some socks, husband keyring etc which he really appreciated

I bought my husband engraved cufflinks, and whilst he bought himself and the dads their shirts theirs all had space for cufflinks but his didn’t, so they’ve never been worn! 🙈🙈 luckily I’d also bought him a watch, some whiskey and glasses, and property of Mrs Mullin boxers and socks x

I got my husband some really lovely cufflinks and had them engraved with our initials on one and the wedding date on the other. He loved them. I also got him a bottle of Armani diamonds. I figured I had been given plenty of diamonds over the years was only fair to get him some too xx

We discussed his main one. Then the little things (cufflinks and socks) I surprised him with on the day x

I was sneaky with the best man, he told him he wanted to loan him some special cuff links for the day and please don’t buy any as I would mean a lot to him to wear them. (Nope!!! I had bought him some specially engraved ones! Job done!) x
