@stacycats:  I guess it would depend on how much you’re looking to spend.  My fiance’s mom is very involved and so is my Dad…..I got both of them tshirts that I designed myself.  They’re the kind of people that get totally excited about stuff like that.  I found a really cool website to design them myself (I think it’s http://www.customizedgirl.com).  They wore them when we went dress shopping.  What about getting your male parents cuff links to wear that day, and the female parents a pair of earrings or a necklace or something to wear that day?  If you shop around online I think you could find both and not spend a huge fortune. 

Another idea is maybe giving them framed copies of your favorite engagement pictures if you had an engagement sitting?  Otherwise, allthough it might seem like a small thing, maybe just cards for them.  With notes from both of you saying how much you appreciate what they’re doing and can’t wait to spend the day with them as well.  Sometimes it’s the little things, ya know?

I hope this helped!

Our parents both contributed some money to our wedding – we gave them a photo book of our engagement photos, t-shirts that said “mother of the bride, father of the bride, etc” and a heart-felt card. Then for Christmas we gave them photo books of the wedding pics.

We are in a similar situation paying for most of the wedding but they’ve helped with a few things..

For my parents we actually got skydiving certificates for this summer beause they’ve been talking about wanting to go for so long (and I got a deal from livingsocial.com) 

His parents are a bit harder though, I would love to get them a gift certificate for a bed and breakfast but they aren’t really into that :-/ so I’m still trying to figure out what to get for them.
