@dreamer1288:  Parents I would say no especially since they do not seem to be contributing finacially. I think the best gift (if you are close with them) is a nice handwritten note telling them what they mean to you and then if you want and see something worth it a surprise gift from the honeymoon

We’re going through the same thing. His parents were very generous and paid for about half and my parents couldn’t help so I felt we need to do something. I ordered this a few days ago, I haven’t gotten it yet but it was only ten bucks and paired with a nice thank you note from the both of us I’m sure they’ll love it. There are tons of cheap gifts on here, I got the catalog in the mail randomly and decided to give it a chance.

If you really can’t afford anything, maybe a handwritten letter to them, and at a later date a gift of some sort? Maybe on your first anniversary or somethng.

I agree with the note. One of the reasons my husband and I eloped is because no one offered to help with wedding costs (yet some of them felt they were justified in being upset they weren’t there! hahahaha)

@dreamer1288:  You could always give them a copy of your wedding album, if you find it affordable later down the track.
