    I was wondering the same thing! We are doing mini albums for our parents as well.  In addition to it, however, we are including a digital photo frame with engagements pictures loaded to give at the rehearsal dinner. We will also include a note of some sort detailing the album they will be getting. I see nothing wrong with just giving a note or picture in a wrapped box so they can open that for the time being. They are our parents after all. Smile

    We’re doing the professional photo album as our gift to our parents as well. If you want to give them something at the rehearsal dinner, I think a card is nice. Did you guys do any engagement pictures? You could always make a small album with those pictures, or put one of those pictures in a nice frame and give it to them.

    I think that is great!!! 

    Well now I have a question. We are getting our parents a beautiful 8×10 frame by Lenox/Wedgewood/Reed&Barton, etc. and a professional print. 

    Do you think that is enough?  They aren’t paying for our wedding and they know we are on a tight budget as well.

    We’re doing photo albums, but we’re not doing a gift exchange at the rehearsal dinner. Actually, come to think of it, I don’t know what we are doing at the rehearsal dinner.  Just eating I guess, lol.
