Hi Bees! Bit of a random question here but is this an appropriate gift for my mother and mother-in-law? One each obviously – not sharing!
Thinking ahead, once we get our wedding photos back, I’d like to gift them a nice silver photo frame with a wedding photo in it. However I’m not sure if this is the type of frame that is supposed to be gifted *to* the couple rather than *from* the couple? Specifically the ‘Happily Ever After’ engraved at the bottom. Would this be strange to gift them?
Any thoughts would be appreciated!

We got a double frame with our invitation on one side and a wedding photo on the other for both parents. We put an engagement photo in lieu of a wedding photo at the Rehearsal Dinner but gave them the wedding photo to add later.

It is not horrible. But I feel like a sentiment like that is more something someone wishes for you to be, not something you declare yourself a few weeks into the marriage. That said, I wouldn’t side-eye it or anything.

We gave our parents a wedding photo in a simple silver frame, no engraving. I do feel like the “happily ever after” sentiment on the frame is more appropriate for the married couple to be receiving rather than giving. That being said, its being given to your parents, who I’m sure would love a momento of the day you found your happily ever after, so the sentiment should be fine.

I’m the Mother-In-Law of two fabulous women. I’d love to receive it in slightly different formats, from both couples.
Actually, one of my sons/his wife actually gave us a very similar frame with pictures.

annabananabee : Haha okay this is a very good point! My fiance thought it was weird but said his mum probably wouldn’t… I might just try and find a plain one!
