@ashkat:  When do you go on your honeymoon? I think most people are pretty understanding with that kind of thing, so I wouldnt’ worry much about it. They probably arent’ even expecting a gift, so I think they would be thankful for your thoughtfulness in the first place.

I think it’s totally fine to give them their gift after the honeymoon! You’re still thanking them and showing your appreciation.

I think bringing back thank you gifts is a great idea! We picked up a little something in Italy for the coordinator at our venue who really made everything happen.

I don’t think it’d be a problem at all and a gift from Italy would be incredibly memorable. Like youngbride2b21 said, they probably aren’t even expecting a gift.

We too are very, very, very tight when it comes to money. We were thinking of going the traditional route by getting them a picture frame. Honestly though, I want to do something much bigger and more special than that seeing that my parents are paying for the entire wedding. Maybe his parents will get the picture frame. :]

I think it is fine to do it after as well.  

We gave both our parents a special thank you card the day after the wedding (they got a proper one later with a picture of us on it too) and a card which said once we get our professional photos back they can pick what photos they want and we will make it into a photo book for them.

That way they each got to pick exactly which photos they wanted and with their own families on some of the pages too.

Absolutely!  Truth be told, we never actually gave our parents anything.  We are giving my Mom a wedding album though.

That sounds fine! We are giving our parents framed wedding picture as a gift as well.
