(NewsUSA) - The answer is: Yes, it's expected.
But it's also a chance for all you brides out there to truly show you know that not everything is about you on your wedding day. That there really is another person involved (that would be the groom) who deserves a bit of recognition, too.
We're talking wedding presents -- specifically, yours to your husband-to-be.
Tradition does, indeed, hold that both you and he exchange gifts. And while it's true that some guys are initially shocked to learn your engagement ring doesn't also count as a "present," that's no excuse for you to waver.
"Giving him something that's just for him will make him feel really special," advises BrideBox.com.
Here's what you need to know now that it's prime time for weddings:
* When to exchange them. Etiquette dictates that the hand-off occurs at one of three times: the night before the wedding, the morning of the ceremony, or right before leaving on your honeymoon. Think it's bad luck to see the groom before the nuptials? "Many couples choose to courier gifts via bridesmaids or groomsmen just before the ceremony," says Brides.com.
* There's a thin line between "romantic" and "mushy." Some of you may be tempted to compile a "love notes" journal of every bit of correspondence you've ever sent your groom. Even assuming he's the type who wouldn't consider that a bit "over the top," there's always the chance he might be left wondering, "Okay, where's my real present?"-- especially if his gift to you is a serious piece of jewelry.
* The consensus choice. There's a reason a watch invariably makes everyone's short list: It's the perfect statement of who he is or aspires to be. (It's also a lot more impressive than a flask, which for some reason also gets a few votes).
No less a taste arbiter than MarthaStewartWeddings.com favors Baume & Mercier's Clifton line -- as elegant as the original 1950s model that inspired it -- for the way it "easily transitions from big day to every day." Like the Swiss watchmaker's timelessly charming (and affordably luxurious) Classima line, it comes with a choice of straps, dial faces and a variety of what's known as "small complications" that go way beyong just telling the hour. You can shop them at the Baume & Mercier e-boutique or by calling 1-800-MERCIER, where free engraving and wrapping are available.
* Fun fact. One writer at AskMen.com says he's "heard of women giving their husbands watches in the ceremony instead of a wedding ring." If so, the answer is: No, just like your engagement ring, that wouldn't also qualify as a wedding present.
(BPT) - Having fears on your wedding day is normal and many questions will run through your head; “Did I invite everyone?” “What if I trip in my heels?” “Am I forgetting something?” Out of all the questions you’ll ask yourself, “Am I being a bridezilla?” probably won’t be one of them.
(NewsUSA) - With everything that goes into your wedding day, those once-in-a-lifetime moments will go by in a blur, which is why hiring a professional wedding photographer is a must. After all, the last thing you should be worrying about is whether your photographer will be able to capture your big day.
(BPT) - Weddings can be expensive, and most brides and grooms need to establish a budget before they start planning the wedding so they can afford to get hitched. Many couples are now getting married later in life and paying most or all of the costs themselves, so it's important to start budgeting sooner than later.
(BPT) - Getting ready to say “I do?” Of all the tasks you’ll do to prepare for your big day, creating your wedding registry will be one of the most fun. It’s your chance to choose everything for your home, from towels and linens to plates, flatware and kitchen gadgets. Be sure to add choices in a variety of price ranges so guests can decide how much they want to spend, while still getting you and your new spouse something you really want. Dream big - in addition to the basics, take this opportunity to ask for premium gifts. Here are a few items any couple would be thrilled to receive and enjoy.
(BPT) - Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. The well-known saying may seem cliche, but the adage defines tabletop trends for spring wedding registries. Engaged couples are steering away from the conventional choices made by their parents' generation. Experts say they are instead opting for personal style over tradition. They’re blending patterns, shapes and colors mixing old and new.
