my parents are not paying for the wedding, just showing up at it! and my bridesmaids will probably not be enlisted to do too much, as they live pretty far away. i am probably going to pay for their dresses/shoes/hair/makeup and any other wedding expense. they just have to show up and eat! lol.

We are getting both of the parents a parents wedding album (still working on this). For the bridesmaids, I gave each of them a framed picture of me and the bridesmaid from the wedding. My husband didn’t give his groomsmen anything after the wedding, but they didn’t really do much anyway.

We gave both sets of parents beautiful Waterford crystal picture frames as a thank you for supporting us and raising us to become the people we are today. My parents contributed a fair bit to the wedding and DH’s parents gave us an extremely generous gift, but it wouldn’t have mattered whether they did or not, we still would have gotten them both gifts as we obviously wouldn’t be at this point in our lives without them.
For my bridesmaids, I gave them Vera Wang crystal vases after the wedding – something practical and lovely that they probably wouldn’t buy themselves but will defintely use.
To me, it wasn’t about thanking them for how much support they did/didn’t give with the wedding, it was about thanking them for always being by my side and being amazing family members and friends.

I made both of our parents 12 by 12 photoalbums on Picaboo/Photobook Canada. They are simply gorgeous. Everyone loved them!!!

We didn’t get presents for anyone after the wedding, didn’t really think about it with moving and everything.
