@Novella:  My Fiance and I also decided to give wedding album as gift. Here is what we did: I bought two albums and Fiance and I each typed up notes to our own parents then each other’s parents. I put it on some pretty paper and I put the notes in the front of the albums for each parent so we had something to give them and it was personal. I explained that once we get married and get photos back I will make album. We also had them both over for dinner and that is when we gave the albums. I am not giving them anything the day of.

I like what the person above did.

Our albums were supposed to be our Christmas presents for our parents… but I haven’t got around to making them yet.

I was going back and forth on this one as well. I was thinking that we would be putting together an album for each of our parents as a gift. It def lends an issue with the rehersal dinner gifts now! I was throwing around the idea of getting a nice frame engraved (those types you can find that say “mom” or have a nice saying about being their for you or something to that effect. and then surprise them with the album after the day but I’m still throwing it around.

I’ll be following this thread as well as I’m interested as what others have done 🙂

  I am really curious myself! I do believe that our photographer includes parent albums in our package. However, I would really like to do something for them that doesn’t relate to our pictures. If anybody else has any other ideas, I would love to hear them!

I don’t know about his dad, but I’m giving my dad a picture of the two of us when i was about 3 years old. he’s sitting in a chair in the garden and i’m kissing his forehead. it’s the cutest picture ever.

On the back of the picture i want it to say “today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl”. I saw it on Pinterest and it made me cry – so I definitely want to do that for my dad. Inexpensive but very personal.

Our mums will probably just be getting a bouquet of flowers. Nothing fancy as they’ll have to transport them home (both parents live 300 miles away) but it’ll be a nice gesture nonetheless!
