Hmm - maybe an eagle (like the Polish eagle) or a stork? I think something related to the Polish nature would be a nice gift that brings good memories...

Hmm, yeah an eagle would be pretty cool. Red and white colors :). Bottle of vodka maybe? Haha just kidding. The colors are the most important in my opinion.

Well, you can all dress up in XVIII/XIX century Polish clothing and have a "Pan Tadeusz" style wedding ..and the party afterwards in a castle or something..

Storks bring children, so a toy stork would be quite suggestive

That's exactly what I want to do. Any ideas how to go about it?

Is there the same stigma about the number of flowers that you give like in Russia where even numbers of flowers are usually for bereavements and you give odd numbers for happy occasions? I know this was disappearing in Moscow with time. Kind of confusing for us Brits where a doxen red roses is THE floral gift.

Note to wife (because I know you're on line darling) - all my flower giving has been for friends weddings. Honest

Szarlotka, I heard about this thing (like you shouldn't give the even number of flowers). It is the same as the colours symbolics (red - love, white - innocence good for weddings, young girls birthday etc, yellow - jealousy), but I don;t think young generation really cares. It must be similar to Russia then - an old custom that is dying out. Especially that not many people can afford 12 long-stemmed red roses - so they buy one :D

hehe checking up on you - the REAL moderator methinks ;)

Roses again seem to be the order of the day in Poland. I'd heard it was best to give an 'odd' number on such an occasian as 'even' was for berevement. oh well

Moderator and final arbitrator Daffy.

My opinion is always sought but in the final reckoning usually ignored.

I think this is an INTERNATIONAL female trait - once the ring is one - the pants switch hands :)

Be nice if they romanced us and once hitched we wear the pants :) no wonder more and more people choose to co-habit than marry these days :D BTW - are there any other polish symbols of love besides the nearly standard rose?

A small pet is a nice gesture. Suggestions: a parakeet, kitten, Chihuahua.

Garlic crushers

I wish someone would give me some garlic crushers; how romantic!

I always found that bread smothered in smalec worked well. Must be an odd number of slices of bread though.

No, I'm pretty sure it would be Myslovitz concert tickets. Forget the rose!
And of course,
Diamonds are always appropriate..... :D

Sprinkle it with sugar, please.

Flowers always work for me. Years ago I had a very romantic boyfriend. As we drove in downtown Chicago, he noticed a guy selling roses on the corner. He stopped almost in the middle of the intersection, ran to the guy, bought a rose and ran back. It stopped the traffic and we noticed a lot smiles as well as fingers sticking out of the cars honking furiously....Oh, the crazy years...Please don't try it... :)

Forget the roses, BORING!!!

Take her on a picnic, feed her strawberries and creme, give her a bunch of dasies or violets... if she like these, she likes you. If she loves you, it's the thought that counts, not the price of the item.

I was wondering if someone can give me some information and maybe symbols for Polish cross. Something that symbols Poland?

Can someone help with the POlish sign and symbols?

Well for me I have done/do the Roses I have done/do the diamonds but works the most is if I actually put effort into a meal or buy and arrange a special day or if this fails book a romantic week/weekend to a Capital city, the cheapest way is to arrange a pick nick but this is not the ideal weather just now ;)

Any symbol of love comes from the heart.
