Parents' gifts suggestions

Recommended Posts

I know this might be a stupid question but who all receives gifts or who should we get gifts for? I'm thinking both sets of parents and grandparents? Also my dad remarried eight years ago... do I get my step mom a gift?

Well we only have to worry about my parents and his mom. I think it depends on how close you are to the person, but I think you get a gift when the person contributed to the wedding.

 

An album would be a good idea but I would have to ask for the pictures from my mom and my FI’s mom and since I don’t want them to know I can’t do that.

This is sentimental and multi-generational. You could probably purchase a larger frame if your parents/grandparents were divorced.
That is an absolutely beautiful idea!!! I will suggest it for my FI's parents. I would do it myself but my Dad's parents passed a long time before I was born so I don't think it will work for my end. But for his, it will be perfect!!!

I am thinking pretty necklaces for my MOH and bridesmaids. And personalized jewelry boxes for our nieces (flower girls). No idea what my FI is thinking for his BM and GM. I also don't know what to get for my parents..... Perhaps some really nice china or wine glasses since they don't have anything fancy like that.

We are making photo albums from snapfish.com after our wedding and AHR. But felt like we wanted to present something to them while in Mexico, we are getting each set of parents a private dinner on the beach at the resort. Its soemthing they wouldnt pay for on their own and they will never forget. we are scheduling it for teh last night of each of their stay. Its pricey but, well worth it-- esp if you are considering a spa treatment, comes out to the same.

We are going to wait till after we return to give our parents gifts. We are going to make them albums with our wedding pictures.

 

My best friend is a wedding photographer so she is going to do ours...but you could do one on Snapfish.com and still look really nice.

Looove the picture frame idea! And my FI thinks its awsome. He has both of his grandparents left so he could easily get the pictures. My mothers passed when she was young...so I'd have to do some research on that...one weekend that they are away I'd have to go over and really dig through pictures! But that makes it even more of a surprise and I dont they would love that!

 

I was thinking of doing 5 slots, and putting a picture of my brother and his wifes wedding picture. My FI sister is getting married in July so we'd be able to put them in too!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
