    JJBelle:  I think Etsy is just covering all the bases.  We are planning to give a gift to each set of parents from both of us at the rehearsal dinner when we give the bridal party their gifts.  I am choosing to give my mom, dad, and sister each a small gift and letter the morning of the wedding but that has a little more meaning to it for me than just wedding – I’m moving 2,000 miles away 4 days after the wedding for who knows how long.
