@Moosemaybite:  we didnt do parents gifts because we paid for the wedding ourselves. Our parents each ended up giving us a nice cash “gift”….but it wasnt like they told us in the planning process like “we are contributing”. I have them nice cards and I’m going to let them know when we get our pro pics back we will make them albums (probably like shutterfly or something) ….. other then that we thanked them for everything they’ve done and raising us etc etc at the reception.

We waited until we got our professional pics back and then made them each a photo book from Adoramapix. They weren’t too bad with a coupon.

@Moosemaybite:  we aren’t, because we can’t afford it. we’re probably going to get them nice cards and write them nice, long heartfelt letters of thanks for their support and contribution (in FMIL’s case), but we just cannot afford the extra cost of parents’ gifts.

i know FBIL and his wife didnt do parent gifts either, they just got them albums of their wedding photos, which we’ll probably do too.

An album and a print is more than enough!

We’re doing the same.  We are paying for the wedding ourselves too and are going to get our parents a framed print of all of us together from the wedding day.

We also went the album and a print gift. Those albums can be expensive! 😀

@Moosemaybite:  I don’t think we are because my mom said she’s going to be seriously annoyed if we get them anything. They don’t want a gift and any money we would have spent she wants us to use towards our house. my parents are paying for the majority of the wedding so we aren’t going to get his parents anything either. We are giving them parent albums though, which are like 300 so that’s a gift enough.
