Hi!  I got my parents and future in-laws embroidered hankies from Etsy.  I could pick what I wanted to say so could be heartfelt/customized, and they were inexpensive.  Also, my future in-laws primarly speak Italian, so I was able to write the messages in their language.  Because of the wedding costs, I tried to shy away from more expensive items, and found that they were less meaningful, too.

I also got my parents and his hankies with personalized messages (the one for my step-father was the best) and (my RSVPs are postcards the front is a big F with love birds perched on it and a tree) I had my RSVPs made into labels and am labeling wine bottles with it.  Our names and wedding date were added to it.

Can you give us an approximate price point?

I’m just giving them each a picture frame with a picture from our engagement session and saying IOU a nice wedding album. I’m making ours, so I figure I’ll make a couple smaller ones at the same time for both our parents.

My parents paid for pretty much my entire wedding- we bought them a 4 day cruise as they had never been on one (and we went with them).

My inlaws paid for the rehearsal dinner- we bought them tickets to a dinner theater (and yes went with them).

Are you having any kind of decorative symbol of your marriage made? Basically, what we’re doing is having our ketubah (Jewish wedding contract) artist make smaller versions of our ketubah with a parent blessing. It will be in the same ink and calligraphy as our ketubah with the same design around the edges. So it will almost be like they have a small piece of our ketubah for them. If you’re having something that is unique made for your marriage, maybe you could have smaller versions made for your parents?
