My mom’s best friend (who is like a 2nd mom to me) is hosting my bridesmaids luncheon 2 months before my wedding. My bridal party, along with my mom, FH’s mom, my grandma, and FSILs will be there.
I am planning on taking this time to present my bridal party with their gifts of appreciation. I may also give the mom’s their gifts here too as well as the friend who is hosting this for me. That only leaves my grandma and FSILs left. Do I give them gifts too? If so, then what? My FSILs hosted our engagement party and my grandma gives her support but she is pretty limited.
I could use some ideas! Thanks!

In weddings and bridesmaid luncheons here, it is perfectly fine to give gifts only to the bridesmaids and flower girl(s), if you have them.
It is also customary to give a hostess gift to whomever is hosting your luncheon (or any bridal fete).
Other attendees should have no expectation of receiving a gift and should merely enjoy the luncheon and the day.
Never heard of giving mom’s gifts related to a wedding, but as a mom, of course I would be all for that.

I would consider giving the “mom gifts” at the rehearsal dinner or the wedding day instead. That way, on the off chance that FSIL or other attendees feel a little left out of all the gift-giving, your BMs will clearly be the focus… after all, it’s a bridesmaids‘ luncheon, lol! Give all of the attention to your special ladies and leave the other stuff for another day.
