I got embroidered hankys for all the parents. May not be a great idea for all the dads out there, but my dad always carries one and I knew he's like it. (He's a softy. Haha.) FI and I will also give them a canvas of their choice as a gift after the wedding. This was just a small thing for the day of. I also like the idea of a family excursion or something. Here's what my hankys say - and they all have Love, Amanda and our wedding date underneath:
For my mom: "To dry your tears as you have always dried mine."
My dad: "You will always be the first man I ever loved."
FI's mom: "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams."
FI's dad: "Thank you for your example of a husband and father. I am blessed to marry your son."
Not for everyone but great for us!
