This is a bit complicated, but if you’ve got the ability to set up a printer that prints pictures OR someone who is willing to run to a nearby pharmacy with one of those instant print booths…you could get some cute picture frames, take non pro pictures (formal or semi-candid) with each lady, print photos, and have it to give in a quiet moment during the reception. Gift certificates to their favorite spas/boutiques/restaurants? Basket of baked goodies?

Someone posted this link over Christmas, and I think they’re such cute ideas. They aren’t all wedding-y, but they could get more ideas going:

As far as family members, are you just talking about the 4 bio-parents and 4 step-parents, or are there others? Could their gifts wait until after the wedding? I don’t know your parents obviously, but most seem to really like pictures of their kids. You could wait til the pro pics get back, get 8x10s of the ones you think each parent would enjoy, put them in nice frames, and stick a ribbon on it before giving it to them. Also, a handwritten, heartfelt card can be appropriately tailored for each relationship. I don’t have step-parents and don’t understand the dynamic, so please take this advice with a grain of salt.
