    I would give it to parents and grandparents.  I highly doubt any of our siblings would have cared for our wedding album.  I also would make it part of a gift and give a little something else as well.

    To close family, sure.. but use it as an accompaniement to another gift. I think a wedding album as a gift to parents can be done and should be done without a holiday attached. So in my opinion yes, but not if it’s the only gift!

    I doubt anyone other than parents and grandparents would really want your wedding album. I also think it’s pretty traditional to give an album to parents, so I wouldn’t actually consider that a holiday gift.

    I gave wedding photos and albums as gifts to both sets of parents last year, so I voted yes.

    In addition to another gift, but technically no.

    Nope, I’m always happy to have pictures of the poeople I love, but wWhen they give it to me as a gift..well, there’s just no response to that.

    I think your grandparents would like the album too.

    I think parents and grandparents would love it, but if my brother or one of my friends gave me their wedding album as a Christmas present, I would just roll my eyes!

    wedding album as a gift? Uhm…. no. Sorry,

    I’d give out gift cards rather than spend money on albums that will collect dust on a closet shelf. I would give them to your parents and grandparents and possibly future children.

    Yeah I don’t think so.  It does seem a little self absorbed.

    Oh no, not as a gift. Give it to them just ‘cos… they’d like it but as a gift it’s weird and self-absorbed IMO.
