gifts for parents?

Recommended Posts

We've pretty much paid for the entire wedding ourselves, with the exception of his parents paying for the Welcome Dinner. So, we're not planning on getting our parents anything. We will of course thank them at the reception though for all of their love and support through the years :)

 

I think the picture books after the wedding is fine and will be very much appreciated!! :)

We are getting may parents a $200 gift certificate to the fairmont resorts. They live close to the Algonquin hotel and Golf resort in St Andrews, New-Brunswick, Canada. And they were a little disapointed that our area of Cuba does not have golf. So they will be using it to play some golf there. That being said, they also forked over half of our wedding budget.

 

I think it really depends on the level of financial support your parents are giving you for the wedding. But I defiently like the idea of a digitial photoframe! I think I might send them one with all of our wedding + vacation pictures :)

Since we're paying for the wedding ourselves, I just plan on giving them a photobook once we get home. They'll still get the OOT gift, but nothing more than other guests.

This is something I need help with. My mom bought my dress and is throwing our AHR for us so we're trying to think of something really nice to get her. His mom is not even going so I guess we don't have to worry about her. I was thinking about some diamond earrings. We will see what my funds are looking like next month. She deserves it though.

We are also paying for the Wedding ourselves, However, our parents have been more then awesome about everything (Our Moms and Step-Dads)..So we are definitely getting them photobooks made after the wedding, but we also got them gifts to give them at the rehearsal.

We got our moms Embroidered Robes from Smarty Pants Boutique..They have their initials on the front and "Mothe of the Bride/groom" on the back..and we are also paying for them to get their hair done. I am thinking of doing the embroidered hankies fo them as well.

For the Ste-dads, we got them "Father of the Bride/Groom" shirts & we'll get cigars in Mexico. We got FI"s Step-dad an engraved Zippo that has "pops" on the front and We Love You on the back with our date under it.

For my step dad we got him this really big black travel coffee mug and on the front their is a metal plat, we got his name engraved on it and it also says we love you, with our date under it.

 

It took forever to figure out what to get them though, especially the dads, so i am so glad that is done!!!

Since my DW is a bigger financial burden for my mother than I originally thought, I am considering paying for either a room upgrade, or a spa GC for the resort. This will be the first vacation she has had in many years and I want to make it special for her too.

We are getting our parents albums after the wedding. We are also going to give them nice bottles of wine with personalized thank you labels. They have pictures and a thank you message. They're all big wine buffs and it will be something nice to display, even after they drink the bottles!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
