my mom was confused by this too – she had never heard of it.
i think its a total preference really – it personally meant alot to me to be able to gift my parents with something since they financially helped me with my wedding.
i got them a weekend in charleston at a cute little B&B – they used it last week and were so happy!
we got his paretns a little something too for throwing the rehearsal dinner

My parents are paying for the wedding, and until after the wedding, are paying for all my expenses (I’m graduating college soon). Anyway, if I got them an expensive gift then they would just be mad at me that I spent their money unecessarily. They are giving me a gift, so to give them a gift from their own money is just confusing and weird. I’m sure they would love the meaning behind it though. I think if I decide to give a gift to the parents, it will be something very small and inexpensive. But I don’t think it’s necessary to give parents gifts IMO.

@melissa90405: we’re paying for 80% of the wedding, and all sets of parents are giving a little $$ so we’re giving them small gifts to say thank you. The limit is about $20 each!

We’re going to get our parents nice gifts, because they’re paying for almost all the wedding costs. We’re thinking earrings for the moms, and maybe wallets for the dads. More updates to follow.
