Since my ILs were our only wintnesses to our August wedding, we did get a nice portrait of the four of us (MIL, Father-In-Law, H, me), and another of the parents with their only son. I think we’ll be getting these printed and framed for Christmas gifts.
I plan to make a wedding album for just us. Would that be too much to make an album for the ILs? What about a smaller album (I’m doing a big one for us)? I just don’t want to look too attention whorish. Maybe they’d like to select their own prints, and not let me make an album for them?
Since neither my mom, my sisters or his sister were at the wedding, I’m not going to do any photo gifts as that would be a little odd I’m thinking. Well maybe my mom would like some photos, I don’t know.
Tell me what you think is OK!

I think that everone will appreaciate photos. You can give the ILs a framed photo of the four of you as a christmas gift and then let them choose what images they would like to order from the full set.
I would give your family photos of just you and your husband framed. That would be a nice gift and would not make them feel sad that they were not photographed. Does that make sense?

I don’t think it’s attention whorish, it’s their son too. But I’d go with a smaller album since I’m assuming it will mostly be pictures of just you two since you had a small elopement.

I am making albums for our parents. I think it is nice for parents to have more than the usual photos. Mostly they are excited to share with their friends and co-workers, so I don’t see it as attention getting.

Some photographers here include in their prices a small album that you can give to your parents and in laws. I think it is a great idea!

I just wondered if giving her a mini album would be a sore reminder that my mother did not see me get married, yet again.
