    Hi Ladies,

     

    I need your help!!

     

    I am completely stumped as to what gift to give both parents. As well as our grandmothers (we only have 1 left from both sides). 

     

    My Bridesmaids are getting a whole bunch of things (most have to do with their attire the day of wedding). Is that fair?

     

    This what they'll be receiving:

    1. Peacock hair pin
    2. Swarvoski crystal earrings
    3. Beautiful custom barefoot sandals
    4. Bridesmaids' tank top

     

    Should I get them something that is non-related to the wedding?

      I think these are great ideas, and they can always use them again!

          I looooove your OOT bags! You are nice to purchase their dresses- I couldn't they chose expensive dresses and it wasn't in our budget- but its definitely a winning gesture. I adore the tank tops. Where did you get them- I'd like them for my bachelorette party. They are adorable. You spoiled your girls!

          ictures are gorgeous!

              I am giving the moms things similar to the bridesmaids.... they are all getting a personalized bracelet, "bridesmaid" or "mother of the bride" (or whatever) tank top (DIYd), barefoot jewelry (DIYd), lip balm, tropical-flavored hand lotion, and so on. Then my BM and MOH are getting some specific things.

              The moms are each getting a pashmina each as well. My FMIL, who I am very close with and who is SO supportive, is also getting a special necklace (we get each other a necklace on every trip we take apart).

              The dads are getting a "father of the bride" hat, personalized t-shirt. 

               

              We also wrote personal notes for people. I wrote one for each parent, and one to his parents, and one to each of my siblings. He is an only child, and wrote one to his parents.

              I think they will appreciate that more than most gifts anyway.

               

              After the wedding, at our AHR, we are going to give each set of parents (and the grandparents) nice picture frames with a wedding picture in it,
