    We are thinking of sending our parents to a show in Vegas.

      I would give my mom and step-day everything if I could, my mom has helped me SOOO much and her and my step-dad have been very genorous finaculy and are already planing to do more!!

      So far I have a a photo album for her and FI mom and the dads are getting what the GM are getting (old fationed shaving kits, FI picked them out)
      Though I'm thinking of geting my mom the open heart neckless because of everything she has done for me.

      And I just remembered I have a step mom too... blah wish she would stay home... wont let my little sister skip a day of school to be there a day early to get her nails done with the rest of my attendants :/

        I'm getting our Parents a gift for the weddding, just because I thought it would be a nice way to say Thank You for everything they've done in raising me.

        For my Mom I bought her a silver vanity set like the one she used to have when I was little, and I'm going to get the tray engraved with something, (not sure what yet).

        For my Dad, I bought him a toy Model car of what he use to drive when I was little. He use to take me everywhere in it, I even cried when he sold the car. I'm going to get that engraved as well. Found it on ebay for $6

        Neither of them were expensive, but it reminds me of my childhood, so I thought it would be nice.

        For my sister who is also my MOH I bought her a frame from Personalized Picture Frames - Manufacturer of the original "You Create" personalized picture frame., you can have it engraved with anything you want along thetop and sides, and I put all the sayings she use to tell me as a child. She's 6 years older, so her favorite response to me when I would ask how she would know something was, "because I Know Everything" This was also inexpensive, less than $30 for an 8x10.

        Certainly I don't think a gift is necessary, especially if you are paying for everything like we are, but if you would like to get them something, then you should. The dollar amount isn't important, a heartfelt letter would be just as appreciated, I'm sure.

          I was wondering the same thing!!! My parents have been incredible throughout this whole thing, I am so happy you started this post as you girls have some great ideas on what to do for the parents. I definetely need to do something to show my gratitude!

            We each wrote long notes to our parents and in-laws. The night before the wedding - i ate dinner just with my mom and dad and sis and FI his Mom and Dad and brother - we each gave them the notes we had written for them. We also gave each a "parent" version of our wedding album - it's identical - just a smaller version!
