I always thought you give the bridesmaids gifts for them being there and what not but if they aren’t really doing anything… maybe just a small something to say thank you for being in the party? And as for the parents, I thought you just give them gifts for being your parents and all that they have done for you through out life but who knows? I will probably give my parents something even though neither of them are helping at all.

I’ve been having some of the same issues about who to buy for and this is my advice based on what I’m doing (you don’t have to take it of course 🙂 ) but I’d say, get your sisters something small  because they are helping you out regardless of whether or not they’re spending money, get your mom something nice, and get your dad something small.  That way nobody can complain, you wont have to feel bad, but you’re giving credit where credit is due 🙂

Yes, I would still give them both small gifts.

Even if our parents weren’t helping us out with the wedding cost, we would still get them a gift as a “Thank You” for raising us. 

As for your sisters, if they are your bridesmaids they should still receive a gift as a thank you for being apart of your wedding. The fact that your mother is covering all of their costs shouldn’t really have any bearing on the gift, imo.

I would just give each of them a little something..just to say thank you and show your appreciation for…having them in your lives I guess! You don’t have to spend a lot, you can get your sisters $20 necklaces or earrings to wear in the wedding, or cheap tote bags to carry stuff to your wedding for getting ready…if no gift for your parents, just at least a thank you card with something really nice written inside about how you are thankful for how they raised you and for doing all they did for you and that you’re excited to still have them there for you in this next phase of life..something along those lines maybe! (depending on your relationship)

Just SMALL gestures to show you appreciate each person 🙂
