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!

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
