We are not getting our parents gifts for the wedding. I've been to several weddings and rehearsal dinners, and there was only 1 time where I saw gifts presented to parents at the rehearsal dinner - and my luck, it was my FI's sister's wedding. She presented a beautiful cocktail ring to her mom (my FI's mom), as well as a gift to her dad, and the groom's mom (groom's dad passed away years ago). I was very confused when I saw this and thought, "Oh my God! Do I have to do that to?!". But after checking in with all my friends that have been married and blogs, etc. I realized this is not the norm. So, what we are doing is paying for the mom's makeup for the wedding - which we're also paying for the bridesmaids makeup as part of the gift, the mom's will get a corsage as well (that's normal), the dads will get a small gift only slightly monetarily less than the groomsmen, AND, we'll be getting each of our parents a wedding album coffee book as a part of their X-mas gifts which will be only a little over a month after our wedding (we get married in early November).
