We’re planning on getting my dad a watch and cufflinks and my mom earrings and a clutch.  Similar thing for his parents, I believe.

  • Wedding: April 2010

We are getting both sets of parents albums from our photographer, nice frames, cufflinks for the two dads and embroidered handkerchiefs for all.  Each will have some play on “Today a bride, Tomorrow a wife, Forever your Daughter” with our wedding date.  Both sets of parents have been a huge help with the wedding planning and deserve more than we can give.

I’m the third of three girls (and the third wedding in three years) so all of the traditional stuff has already “been done” in my family. Since my parents love their backyard and to cook with fresh ingredients…I got them a lemon tree. It has an even longer back story to it, but to sum it all up: Get them something that reflects their interest, perhaps their love for one another and/or what they have taught you about love and marriage. I hope that helps!

We will be getting each set of parents a double paned silver plated picture frame. We will engrave one pane with their wedding date and put their wedding picture in it. We will engrave our wedding date on the other pane and put our engagement picture in it as a place holder for our wedding picture.

We feel so blessed to have parents who are still married after 30+ years as role models of strong marriages, so we wanted the gift to be about that.

we were originally going to get our parents albums, but then we decided that we wanted to actually be able to give them something at the rd, and the ablums wouldn’t be ready by then (obviously). we got his dad a gift certificate for a golf game, and my dad a gift certificate to a restaurant that he loves on the beach, along with an autographed picture of bobby bowden! (he always gives us autographed pictures of bobby for special occasions, so i thought i’d return the favor). we got our mom’s necklaces from an israeli artist.

We’re doing parent albums, and we’re also going to take our parents out to a really nice restaurant as a thank you, probably a month or so before the wedding.

We thought about designing albums with our engagement photos, but we probably won’t have the high-res images from our photographer yet at that point, and the low-res images won’t make for nice albums.  The parent albums that our photographer offers are a bit on the very expensive side, so we were hoping to use the Apple store or another online service to design the albums. So it’s back to the drawing board!

FI’s parents aren’t doing anything to help so we’ll probably just make them an album with our wedding pics (already gave them one of e-pics) but for my parents I think we’re taking them on a long weekend trip down to… get ready… I know this is so weird and random but the Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando/Disney! haha We all love Disney and Universal Studios and wanted to go all together. So we’ll pay for their tickets and hotel and they’ll get their airfare and it will be a fun long weekend trip at the end of sept/early october. We like giving experiences for presents rather than stuff… cause lord knows my mom definitely doesn’t need anymore stuff.

We aren’t quite sure but the idea is for our parents, (3 sets: my parents, his mom and step dad, and his dad and step-mom), getting them a nice frame, having it engraved. We’ll put our engagement picture in it until the wedding pictures come in. We are also giving them parent albums.
