We knew our gift to them would be a monetary contribution towards their portion of a family trip that we’re planning for next year. Once we got all our wedding money, we decided how much to give. We also got them a giftcard to a restaurant.

My parents contributed much more to the wedding than we were expecting, too. We decided to gift them a weekend at a romantic B&B in a part of Alaska they’ve always wanted to go to, and we are giving them a wedding album. I also handwrote them a really long, special card to give to them on the wedding day, and I gave them a framed photo of Mr. W and I with the caption “We owe you a wedding album!”

You can’t really thank them enough and you don’t have to. They did it because they wanted to and you can thank them by getting good value and making sure that you all have a good time at your wedding. Obviously you can get them a nice gift but I don’t think you need to overthink it – maybe a framed family photo of all of you together would be nice.

I think a really heartfelt written thank you note is the best thing you could do. Any gift you give them will be appreciated, I’m sure, but they’re giving you this gift because they love you, they can afford it and they want you to enjoy it! You don’t need to reciprocate with a super generous gift – just let them know how much it means to you. 🙂
