No Cold Feet Here!

As our wedding approaches, being nervous is honestly the farthest thing from our minds. Maybe we’ll feel a bit of nervous energy start to kick in the week of the wedding, but for now, we’re focused on the excitement of perfecting our day by putting the finishing touches on all of our projects and plans.

But, even though I know he would never be struck with a genuine case of cold feet, I’ll be bringing in backup by gifting Stephen with a special pair of argyle socks the night of the rehearsal. In doing this, I admit I’m breaking the rules a little. After all, Stephen and I agreed not to give each other gifts.

Even so, when I heard about the idea of “cold feet” socks from Born to be Mrs. Beever over at Thoughts of the All Consumed Bride, I simply couldn’t help myself, especially after I saw the cute Tie That Binds labels to wrap around them!

Like the idea, but don’t want to spend $7.50 on the label? You can easily print your own or just write him a message in a card, instead.

Now, I just have to keep this a secret until the wedding… And luckily, there’s not a very long time left to wait!

Are you giving your groom a gift? How nervous do you think you’ll be on the wedding day?

  1. I saw these and loved these on Mrs. B's blog. I can't wait to see your spin on it!

    I am giving a gift before the wedding - my fiance is an electrical engineer, so I had some cufflinks made out of circuit boards for him to wear on our wedding day. I'm also thinking of getting him a flat-screen TV. We desperately need an updated TV - ours is from 1991!

  2. Love this idea! We already bought socks that match our wedding colors so no surprises there. I want to get Mr. Milk a gift and am thinking about a lens for his new SLR camera.

  3. They are funny.

    I got graham a tag watch that he had wanted for ages and he got me the diamond earrings and necklace I wore at the wedding. We did chose our own though as wanted to get exactly what the other wanted.

    As for being nervous I totally wasn't in the lead up but it's so different on the day; I was sooooo nervous!

  4. Thats a really cute idea. We didn't exchange gifts but I did send him a love

  5. haha! I don't mind you breaking the rules because it looks really cool. No cold feet. Cheers to the both of you.

  6. I can't wait to see your final gifting :) Mr Fix It didn't even end up wearing his socks at the wedding! Little twerp - more to come on that in a recap post :)

    I think you'll be much better off than I was on getting your guy on board :)
