I figured out the bridesmaids but would love to hear what you bees are doing or did for the groomsmen, parents, grandparents, and really anyone else who helped you tremendously during wedding planning/the wedding day.
Budget-friendly ideas would be awesome since we’re having a large wedding….lots of people have helped, haha.

we did cufflinks for the boys, they’re personalized initial keys from vintage typewriters… totally went with the aesthetic we were going for. we didn’t do gifts for the parents and grandparents, but we’re doing really nice thank you notes for them, and are making everyone nice bound albums for christmas.

I’m giving my groomsman a bucket with their favorite beer and barbecuing tools/rubs, etc. What I’ve found among my groomsman is that most of them grill or enjoy having a beer or two or both… if they don’t like beer, then you can use it to marinade and grill with. We thought it was perfect for our groomsman, but it’s a very specific gift I think.

Thanks for the input everyone!
FI and I had talked about doing the parent albums for our parents, but we wouldn’t be able to do that for a month or two after the wedding. We’ll be giving other gifts after the rehearsal dinner so it would be nice to give them something…almost like a preview of what we’ll give them or something? Perhaps a card thanking them for everything they’ve done and telling them what their gift will be?
