I plan on giving gifts to my parents and bridal party for partaking in all the wedding planning etc. Do I give my future in laws a gift if they are not taking part in planning or contributing financially? They may host a rehearsal dinner but that is a highly debated topic (as too many people in the bridal party will be traveling the day of the wedding and will not be around the night before). We have a ways to go but just wondering.

Even if your in laws may not be contributing financially to the wedding, I think it’d be sweet to give them a gift, even if that gift isn’t a huge one. DH and I made photobooks for both of our parents – in them, we compiled photos of ourselves, from birth to present day. They were a huge hit with our parents! What about something like that?

I think both sets of parents deserve a gift whether they’re contributing or not. Something to commemorate the occasion and thank them for all of their love and support (even if it’s not in the form of financial support). Nice picture frames are always an option (for displaying their favorite wedding photos) and photo books are always a hit. You could also get them a digital picture frame or something where they can display photos.
Or, if you just want to treat them to a nice night out, you could get them a gift card to their favorite restaurant and a nice bottle of wine maybe. 🙂

I am getting Future Mother-In-Law a hanky embroidered with “Thank you for raising your son to be the man of my dreams. I am truly honored to join your family” and Future Father-In-Law a nice, engraved pen with a similar sentiment.
