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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
