Are your parents getting gifts? I’d give her whatever you’re giving the other parents.

paying for the rehearsal dinner might actually be a lot – i guess it depends on the size of your dinner.  if you’re getting a gift her based on how much effort she put into facilitating the wedding, then maybe.  you could get her a smaller gift perhaps just to mark the occassion and show her that you are happy about joining their family?

I always saw the presents to the parents as a thank you for raising you, being part of your lives, etc rather than a thank you for paying for the wedding. With that point of view, I’ll be giving each set of parents the same gift. They are both special to Fiance and I.

i like what bichon frise said.  that seems like a good neutral ground – get your parents a present to say thank you for all you did to get me to this point … and if you like, you can alter her suggestion, and just each get your own parents something to say thank you for that =)

side note, her comment about the pictures is really awkward

She sounds..difficult. WIth that being said, you wanna start out your marriage on a good note so I would DEFINITELY get her a gift. It sucks now but you will be dealing with this woman for a while so I recommend making the effort. Good luck to you.

I would get them the same gift and then privately give your parents something extra special as a thank you for paying for your entire wedding. I also think that paying for a rehearsal dinner is great regardless of what is expected, there are so many brides getting very little help or no help.

We’re making the photobooks for both sets of parents, and also probably giving them a gift card for dinner out at the Rehearsal Dinner.
