I am getting married in less then 2 weeks now and have no clue what to get my parents. They have done everything for our wedding…EVERYTHING! I wanted to do something special for them and was thinking of getting the a lladro, but I don’t like any of them. I was thinking a gift certificate to a nice resturant, but they can do that for themselves anytime. Please help…price really isn’t an issue…I think 🙂

I didn’t have much money when we got married, and we only got our photo proofs, so yeah-not even photos of us! But I did get a photo done of my mom & dad together on my wedding day-for them. How often do they get dressed up and have their photo taken. It was a nice one of the two of them, and now that they are both gone, I have it. 🙂

We are getting ours embroidered, customized handkerchiefs from Etsy.com, and also writing them a letter and having it etched onto this with a blank space for a wedding day picture: http://www.personalizationmall.com/Personalized-Glass-Picture-Frame-Engraved-for-Mom-p2629.prod?sdest=dept&sdestid=1101&storeid=7&categoryid=1101

It would be cute to get your parents a nice picture frame with the date of your wedding. And then for Christmas give your parents a picture of you and your husband from the wedding.

I’m a fmil. The idea of getting a gift from my child to celebrate the bridge & groom’s marriage is crazy to me. What would be appreciated though, and I’m not expecting anything, would be a note of appreciation. While I know parents and their children have relationships that are not always good, there must be something to be appreciated coming from that relationship. A heartfelt note. That is what would be cherished. Not more stuff. In My Humble Opinion

@sudslover: I was also stressing about this, but we have completely run out of money. I think my parents (step mom and dads included) would feel the same way. I plan to write everyone a nice note and come Christmas time, we will give them all framed photos from the wedding and/or albums.

What about creating a photo book of the wedding for them? You can make your own from the wedding photos (high res) that your photographer sends you though blurb.com or shutterfly.com — they’re less than $150 and sooo worth the time and effort!

We made photobooks for each set of parents. We customized them with photos we knew each of them would love. I made mine on Adoramapix.com when they were having 25% off a certain size, so it made it really affordable. Just keep your eye out for discounts – they always have something on sale.

i just posted a question like this! its so hard to think of gifts for parents! we finally decided to give each mother a 3 stone necklace – 1 to represent his fam, 1 to represent my fam and 1 to represent the new fam that me and fi will be forming on our wedding day. For the fathers, we are giving them each a flowering tree to plant b/c they both loooove gardening/landscaping and we thought it would be a nice reminder of how much we appreciate and love them every spring when it blooms. we are also giving embroidered hankies to the moms and grandmas. when we get our photos, we will make a wedding album for both sets of parents and will probably give them for christmas presents.
