I think the best way to handle it, is to have FI (or both of you if you are comfortable) explain to her that since you are paying for the entire wedding and have to stick to a budget, that your contribution to her trip will be your gift to her.. maybe if you and FI want give her a card that day, but that's up to you..
My parents contributed some to the wedding and FI's family contributed a small amount also, but we didn't give them gifts on the day.. we are going to make photo books for them, so that is sort of a gift but we haven't done that yet..

Fi's parents are hosting the welcome dinner, my dad paid the rest. I wrote each set of parents a thank you note and said I would make them a photobook upon return from Cabo. Then for my dad, I got him a photoshoot for him and my step mom for thier horses with the fab TammyB, since they paid the most. I also did the photo book thank you note for my mom as she only paid for the favors for the wedding.

Neither family contributed to our wedding except to pay their way to Jamaica. We had very little money left but gave them little gifts to thank them as parents. More of a symbolic memory thing. Like a nice frame that I had engraved with the location and date (ebay). Less than $30 for each set of parents.
