So as I am sitting here on this lovely Tuesday night looking up ideas for my Fiance & I to give our BM/GM & parents. I started to wonder, do the birde and groom get seperate gifts for their own parents? (a thank you for all you’ve done gift) Or do they give them gifts from the both of them? What’s the protocol? Did you do something different? Did you give them one at all?

I have yet to attend a wedding where the couple purchased anything for the parents. I don’t know anyone who does this type of thing. Usually the parents are gifted with a photo album with wedding pics after they are developed, but it isn’t a wedding gift per se.

We presented everyone with gifts at the rehearsal dinner. While Darling Husband gave a thank you toast I passed out the gifts.

I believe that you as a couple give your parents gifts. I’m gonna give mine a framed picture of us (they will get to pick their favorite). Our parents are pretty simple and will like that (our wedding is in Aug). Then for Christmas we will give them a parents album and in the parents albums we will have our engagement pictures AND the wedding pictures.

That’s what I was going for, passing them out at the rehearsal dinner!
I have heard of the photobook of wedding pictures and such. That seems to be like a cute idea for christmas gifts!

We giving gifts to our parents from the both of us. Our moms and dads are getting personalized hankies with their monogram on it. Our moms are criers and our dads will be ‘sweatin’, not in a gross way, but they’ll be nervous, especially my dad with walking me down the aisle. (He’ll want something nice to wipe his forehead). We are giving these out during the rehearsal dinner and then after the wedding is over, we are giving them a wedding portfolio.

I like the idea of giving each set of parents a gift from both Fiance and me. I have no idea what though. It seems like a photo album would be a great idea, but then they will have nothing at the rehearsal dinner.

our gifts were from both of us and it was a gift for the two of them – we got each set of parents weekends in Charleston at a B&B 🙂

We’re most likely going to give a gift to both sets of parents together, but it’ll probably won’t be until after the wedding.

We gave embroidered hankies and silver picture frames.

We plan to give our parents gift from both of us. Our moms are getting personalized blanket with special message embroidered on it (http://www.lil-inspirations.com/) and for our dads… a pair of wine glass engraved with notes (http://www.tomsglassworks.com/)

I think we’re going to go with cards from both of us, and then something a little more personalized for the mom’s just because they are very similar in their likes/dislikes. The dads are getting something different because they are so opposite!
