We’re starting to brainstorm gift ideas for people helping us with the wedding. As it turns out… there are many people who are contributing in some way!
A friend of ours will be officiating, two friends will share the MC duties, one bridesmaid, one groomsman, our parents and then a couple of friends who have agreed to be our day-of-coordinators.
I’m having a really hard time coming up with gift ideas for these people! Our budget is about $50 – $100 per gift.
So who is helping you with your wedding and what are you giving them as a token of appreciation?

We have a lot of people contributing as well!
For family, I think we are going to do a very small framed copy of our engagement picture. For those who have already had our picture printed/framed, we aren’t sure yet. Nothing too big or crazy. Our family understands that the party is the prize so we are not going to be too intense on that I think . We don’t have enough money to make that worth it.
For all the other helpers (Friend DOC, Head of Food, women who cooked a dish, MC, cake maker, etc), we are giving our centerpieces as gifts. We bought several large lanterns from IKEA and are going to announce during our reception that they are our small token of gratitude. Again, we are on a tight budget, so we need to dual-purpose!
Post what you get when you figure it out — I’m really curious what you decide to do!
