    I'm planning to do exactly the same.  They aren't contributing so theres no formal gift, but we are paying for my parent's to stay one extra night after we leave for their own personal vacation.  Our wedding happens to be the day before Mother's Day though, so its sort of a combo gift.

     

    Instead of getting something tangible to carry to Mexico, you could always look into getting them something there.  Bottle of wine, massage, candle light dinner...

      I have parents that are contributing but they are the smallest percentage so i am doing something super simple.

      My Grandparents are getting a engraved picture frame with one of our wedding photos in it

      Not sure what I am getting my mom yet but we are getting my stepdad a pair on Penn State football tickets for 2011 season since he LOVES Penn State

      FMIL - She like the pandora jewelry so looking into that

      FFIL - Golfs so new putter for him

       

      Hope that helps!

        A personalized handkerchief with something sweet is a nice gift for a mom, I think.  :o)

          That's actually a really good idea...I think I'm going to look into that for my mom and step-dad.

           

          For my 1st wedding...we bought picture frames and personalzed them with our names and wedding date for all parents and grandparents.

          We'll probably do that for this too...my mom has already contributed...we still don't have a clue what FI's parents are giving (they say they are...but......) regardless if they are giving us wedding money..they are paying to travel to the wedding..so..in a way that its kind of contributing...and i feel worthy of some small token of thanks.

            I was thinking of getting another dress, but I really love my wedding dress so I think I will wear it again.  One of the girls on here said the guests really liked seeing her in her wedding dress, and as my 2 grandmothers aren't coming to resort I think I will wear it again.  Also who gets to wear their dress twice!!  I think it will be perfect.  I'm excited to wear it twice actually.  Also saves money lol.

I've got to find something soon!!!  I was thinking flowy beachy dress for Mexico but then saw so many brides with more traditional type gowns so I am confused.  Then to top it off with what to wear for JP wedding...short and cute or flowy or traditional types???  So many decisions!!

              My TA just got back from a seminar at Karisma Resorts...she said it was beautiful and service was amazing...food was delicious...she suggested room service for breakfast and late night snacks.  She also said that they now offer free unlimited chair covers for the cremony...I want to double check with her on that one...but I really hope it's true.

               

              Meredith...she had some pics of white chair covers with dark purple bows...looked SO GOOD...I will email you that in a minute...

                Meredith...check out Etsy and see what they have as far as personalized address books. They have a wide array of nice ones there that you can have personalized in every way imaginable. I am 100% positive that all of my gifts to the parents, BM's, and GM's will come from that site.

                  My Dad paid a lot towards our wedding and DH's parents paid for the "rehearsal dinner catamaran".... and we still did not get our parents any gifts.  I did BM gifts and welcome bags.  I will definitely give our parents some printed pro pictures once we get them, but no one I spoke to heard of getting parent's gifts and DH and I were not giving each other gifts, so we did not go the gift route.   Full disclosure: DH and I are pretty anti-gifts.  We'd rather go on vacation or out to eat than buy each other stuff.  And for Xmas, we tell our families to do secret santa or nothing.
