We’ll be giving each of our parents a NICE photo album once we get our pictures in.

For our wedding my Fiance and I, as well as my parents and his parents are all contributing equal amounts. We are gifting the moms with personalized charm bracelets and the dads with grill sets.

It depends on how close your sets of parents are on whether or not I would gift something to each of them. Personally I would just gift the parents that are spending the money/helping out, since that is what the purpose of the gift is.

One thing we wanted to do but it isn’t in our budget was the idea of gifting a gift certificate for a cruise (or at least to go towards one).

I think it is nice to gift the parents at the rehearsal dinner, when you present your gifts to the wedding party. It gives you an opportunity to thank your parents for their support, whether or not it has been financial.

You could give them a nice picture frame to use for a wedding portrait that you will give them later.

You can always give your parents something else in private at another time.

I agree do it at the rehursal dinner. I would assume (even though I shouldnt) his parents wouldnt expect anything and wouldnt be offended knowing that they didnt help contribute to the wedding.
