I love scrapbooking and gave my parents a scrapbook for christmas that was childhood pics leading up to today. Similar to everyones idea's of photobooks but this one is scrapped.

 

Some resorts are really accomodating so you can also probably ask for special treatment in your parents room when they arrive or on a specific night. Maybe arrange for dinner on the beach or pay for breakfast in bed?

Were thinking of framing one of our engagement photos (if we ever get our session booked) and maybe an engraved Tiffany's necklace for each of our moms. I think keeping it equal is the way for us to go, because it symbolizes the joining of two families.

Hmm I hadn't even thought about getting our parents gifts. Is this something most brides do or does it depend on what the parents are contributing? Great ideas on here though. Now you've got me thinking...

We got our moms a beach bag with their name on it. We got our dads panama hats for the wedding. Also, I plan on framing our wedding picture. My brother and SIL did this and my parents LOVED it. Everyone is contributing evenly for the wedding so this is just a little extra saying thanks for the support! I actually gave my mom and dad their gifts as our engagement party but we'll give FI's parents theirs via mail since we hardly ever see them.

I need to bump this!!!

 

I have no idea what I am getting our parents for gifts. I have some time to figure it out, but I would like to at least know what I want to do. I was thinking of doing a picture frame with a wedding photo in it for both parents, but I wanted to do something else before the wedding.

 

Does anyone have any other gift ideas?

I'm trying to figure this out two. My parents will be celebrating 35yrs about three weeks before our wedding. So maybe if we can find something for them to do in JA. I will have to ask FI since he's from there where they can go as an anniversay present maybe.

I'm doing a hard cover photo book of all of our best family photos. Throughout the book, I included quotes about family and parents. I hope they will love it! I'm just finishing it and will be ordering it this coming week!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
