I say do nothing.  They’re adults and can amuse themselves.

It would be nice to do SOMETHING with the people that most likely went to a great expense to celebrate your wedding day with you.

I have people arriving the day before.  Those that arrive in the morning,  I will spend time with, show them around the area I will now be calling home, take them to lunch/out to coffee.  Our rehearsal dinner will be for all of our out of town guests, pizza and beer, which was chosen for our ex-patirate NJ friends/family that cannot get decent pizza where they live.  The morning after our wedding, we are inviting them again for breakfast, so we can see them once again before they leave. 

For my family and best friend and her husband, I am picking up the hotel tab for them, it’s the least I can do for those who have been so generous to me for a long time, especially when I visit them every year.

I’m planning mine from across the country too.  I am just going to invite mine to the rehersal dinner (it will be pizza and beer at the central location so itll be cheapt) and the after party to the reception (we will be doing this because we can’t have beer at our reception).  But my out of towners are family, your out of towners are your parents friends.  I would talk to your parents and suggest they throw something together because your too swamped right now.
