i’m not the best one to consult on etiquette, but here are the ppl we will be gifting:

our bridal party: a bunch of goodies! for my grls – tote filled with champagne glass, day of makeup, “bm” tank, flipflops, jewelry for day of and case, etc. and im paying for their hair and mani/pedis on the rehearsal day.

not sure what FI is going to gift his guys yet, but something simple and useful (as practical as they all are!) probably matching beer mug sets personalized with their fave football team (they’re hardcore into fantasy) etc.

our parents: leatherbound albums with wedding pics

our 2 ushers: matching ties for ceremony

our flower girl/ring bearer: toys 😛

dj n videographer: giftcards (friends doing job for free)

pastor: leather journal (my old yg pastor)

We got them for everyone!  Not really everyone, but we got them for my parents, his parents, my 6 BM’s, his 6 GM, our 2 ushers, and our FG and RB… crazy expensive.  But they’re all a huge part of the day, and they’ve all spent some money to be there (aside from our cute lil FG and RB) so it to us, it was important to say thank you. 

For the GM’s my FI got them dogtags with their nicknames on it and a travel bag.

I got my BM’s a weekender tote, a white robe, a toiletry bag and a compact mirror.

I got my Mom a personalized frame (she said I couldn’t spend a lot on her gift).  For my step dad I got him car mats (he collects cars like they’re shoes!).  And the ushers are my brothers who are athletes so I got them nice gym bags.

The RB got a yankees jacket and the FG we got an engraved jewelry box with a personalized bracelet inside. 

I can’t wait to give all these gifts out!  (partially because they’re cluttering up our space :))
