    @nawella:  It can be hard to come up with gift ideas for parents. They already have so many things.

    We gave our gifts  at the rehearsal dinner.

    A good idea is a lovely frame with an IOU for a wedding pic, or a gift certificate for a canvas of a wedding pic.

    We are giving the parents a photo book of us. We were going to do a canvas print of the ceremony made to look like a painting but we got these coupons for photobooks so using them instead.

    I found a groupon for jewelery for the bridesmaids. FH still doesn’t know what he is getting his groomsmen but he was thinking whiskey rocks. 

    Gifts are suppose to be given at the rehersal dinner.

    I’m going to give them a beautiful photo from the wedding in a personalized frame (but that will be after the wedding). For the wedding, I am getting my dad a “father of the bride” tie pin and my mom some jewelry to wear.

    @nawella:  I gave everyone their gifts at the rehearsal dinner…it fit in perfect.  We thanked everyone for coming and then gave a special thanks to our parents and bridal party and handed them out then.  We did handkerchiefs that were embroidered.  They said something along the lines of this is for drying my tears, as you have always dried mine (mom) and of all the walks we have taken, this one is my favorite (dad).  They were a hit!
