So we are not sure if or what we should buy for our parents. We are paying for the wedding ourselves. Not sure if we should be getting our parents gifts, if yes any ideas? We are already doing gift bags to all guests upon arrival to the resort.

I think you absolutely should give gifts to your parents regardless if you paid for the wedding, or only your parents/his parents paid.
I am no etiquette snob, but I don’t think financial contribution needs to be made in order for a parent to get a gift.
I think a photo album of your wedding is the best gift I’ve seen.

So is that ok to give months after the wedding? What about the day of?
any ideas bees?

@bananchik: would they like personalized embroidered hankerchiefs, with a message of love and thanks and your wedding date? I got these for our parents and, despite not being overly sentimental people, all four got tears in their eyes or cried! Etsy has a lot of good options. Some of the best $100 we spent.
Otherwise, maybe just a nice necklace or scarf or keychain or something like that? Personalized photo frame which they can add a wedding photo to later?

I’m planning to do a piece of artwork with a meaningful poem either on the art or in the card… maybe try and incorporate a book somehow for my mom because she loves them.
Think about what your parents enjoy and try to build around that!
