A while ago I showed you my awesome gift to Mr Elk for the wedding (remember those Indiana Jones cuff links?!). Anyway, since Mr Elk knows about his gift I decided to ask him what he was thinking of getting me for our wedding day. His response? Blank stare into space, followed by a mumbled “I didn’t realize I had to get you something.” Of course, he was totally on board with giving me a wedding gift, so long as it was something I really wanted!
At first, I was thinking jewelry all the way. I still haven’t decided what jewels will help to make up my bridal look, so I thought bridal earrings would make the perfect gift from Mr Elk!
I’ve been sort of obsessed with Kendra Scott earrings for a while now, and these have been high on my list of possible wedding day jewelry:
Even though I’ve been eying them for a while, I’m still a little hesitant. I’m definitely more of a white gold/silver sort of girl, and while I really like the gold in these earrings I’m not sure they suit me.
Unable to make a decision regarding my wedding day jewelry, I started to think of other things that Mr Elk could get me as a wedding day present. And then it hit me:

What I have been dying to get my greedy paws on for the longest time is a smart phone! And not just any smart phone, but a beautiful white iPhone! I told Mr Elk my desires and he seemed to think that would make a great wedding gift.
And then, just a week after we decided on my wedding gift, my current phone decided to die on me. Being phoneless for a day was a bit like losing contact with the outside world! I was actually nervous driving without a working phone, just in case something happened! And so, 2 months out from the wedding I got an early wedding gift! It means that I won’t actually receive a gift from Mr Elk on our wedding day, but I don’t care! My phone is AWESOME!
Are you exchanging gifts with your FI on (or before) your wedding day? Was he/she even aware that couples typically exchange wedding gifts?
