I think the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and parents are musts… It’s nice to get something cute for the ring bearer and flower girl, but I wouldn’t go too crazy. I haven’t seen anyone getting gifts for out-of-towners… except maybe welcome bags for the hotel guests.

@super_stressed_bride:   I would just stick to bridesmaids, MOHs, groomsmen and best men. As far as ring bearers and flower girls go, maybe just something tiny without really spending much money. I am not having flower girls or ring bearers. I am giving my junior bridesmaid (she’s FI’s sister and will have just turned 12 right before the wedding) a very special necklace that I received as a gift when I turned 12. (I no longer wear the necklace, as it’s more appropriate for a younger girl). The only money I’ll be spending will be to get it cleaned, so maybe $10-$15 max.

@super_stressed_bride:  I think you got the important ones. But maybe something small for anyone “in” the wedding: ushers, readers, person in charge of the guestbook, etc. We’re also doing the officiants and ceremony musician because we’re using friendors who aren’t charging for their services. Basically anyone who has had a significant role in putting the wedding together. That’s the point of the gifts. To thank people for helping you with putting together an/or executing the wedding.

we didn’t do welcome bags or anything for our out of town guests. and whenever i’ve been an out of town guest, i’ve never received (or expected) anything either, so i wouldn’t worry about that.

we didn’t have a ring bearer, but we did have a flower girl. we gave her a pearl necklace and a tiara (plus a tote bag and a survival kit, which i gave to my bridesmaids also). i wouldn’t spend a ton of money on gifts for the kids.
