Same here! We'll give them parent albums after the wedding as a thank you but not planning on giving anything during the wedding.

We're giving our mom's Tiffany letter necklaces and monogrammed hankerchiefs. The dad's are getting hankerchiefs as well, but not sure what else. We'll also give them parent albums for Christmas next year....

I am wondering what to do too! My FI's parents and my step-mom (my father died last year) are contributing equal amounts to the wedding. My gift to my real mom will be her accommodations, but I want to do something really special for the parents that are contributing. I really don't have any ideas!

I need ideas for this too! My dad paid for a lot of our immediate family to attend. It was a Christmas gift to everyone. I really want to do something special...but what?

I like the spa for the moms. i'm getting my dad a beautiful pocket watch with engraving. not sure about FIL and StepFIL. hmmm. i think our parents would kill us if we tried to pay for them, and we'd be in debt! wonderful gift though!

So many great ideas! I have been trying to figure this out as well...no one is contributing to our wedding, but I think we should do something. I like the excursion idea...and definately a photobook!

Thanks for postng all the great ideas!

I am thinking about those Pandora bracelets with a charm for our wedding for the moms.

 

The dads we are still thinking, I know my dad I can do a personalized gold towel, hanky and photo.

But his dad, we are still deciding. =)

I love the excursion idea! I could do the spa with my Mom and FI's Mom, and send my Dad out deep sea fishing (which he'll love). I've already ordered parents albums for them but they wont be ready for quite a while after the wedding, so this would be something fun for them while we're down there.

 

Thanks guys!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
