    I think a Vic fits the occasion.

    Cadet II, Hamilton Valiant, and an iTP A3 EOS


    And this is important enough to quote twice:
    You will have to live with those pictures, and your wife, for a very long time.

    You should EDC hangover cures if your buddies do it right you will need it.

    If anything keep nice versions of your standard EDC, other cultures carry everything from swords to AK47's so why not yours?

    In 20-30 years, a knife will still be a knife.... an iPod, less so.

    Congratulations! I think any SAK with a corkscrew is a good idea.

    Universal handcuff key

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,

    And I think an alox cadet is a great gift for any guy. Knife guy or not. If he's a Knife guy he'll love it because he's a knife guy and what knife guy doesn't love the alox cadets. If he isn't a knife guy this is the one to convert him.

    Congratulations! I got married may 4th....I had my Ti money clip with a few bills, zippo for cigars, and my case sodbuster.

    I wanted to give my groomsmen something affordable and made in the USA, so I ended up getting them all basic Texas jack Case knives. Two of them are not "knife" guys...but now they both carry their knives in their pockets everywhere they go.

    Seriously? What should you carry to your wedding?? How about a Victorinox Classic.

    Eh...not enough respect..

    So you need a knife for the wedding? I'd go with a Alox Vic Pioneer variant or a Cadet. Classy enough for dress occasions, and you might want the bottle opener at the party.

    I am guessing your bride knows you are into knives and won't think anything odd of it.

    I love the Alox gift idea. As to what to carry? I would also have trouble figuring that out. I had a 14" dagger on my belt at mine. :) I think the decision is what do you HAVE to leave behind.

    I had a Victorinox Climber in my pocket at my wedding. It was the only knife I carried for probably 10 years. Found it for a buck at a yard sale when I was in high school. :)

    A watch was my only Edc item on the big day. Just be on time and enjoy. And a big ditto to grids7.

    I'd rather have a Case pocketknife than an iPod Nano, that's for sure. A Case will gain character as you use it, and you'll remember all of those times that it came in handy over the years. An iPod, on the other hand, is a disposable vessel for music that will be obsolete next year. I'm also not sure I'd trust anybody else to pick my music, either (I have eclectic tastes).

    I'm glad I eloped, just so I could avoid dealing with picking out gifts for the wedding party. :p

    A big congratulations to you. Love the cadet gift idea, classy and functional. As others have said you shouldn't "need" much more than a nice watch (it's the best mans job to be prepared for any eventuality) but if you want something small, affordable and pretty nice with a deep carry maybe a boker anti-mc. Titanium and ceramic makes it a bit different

    Regardless of what you choose I'm sure you'll have a great day, good luck!

    I had a sgian dhu, and a dirk to cut the wedding cake.
    My best man got an engraved hip flask and a bottle of single malt.

    That's the big advantage of highland dress, you're expected to have a knife on you.
    :D
