We got each set of parents a local artists’ wind chime set.  They all like to spend time outside in their yards, so we thought it would be a nice memory.

  • Wedding: June 2009

My in-laws contributed a chunk of change to our wedding.  (We didn’t solicit it.  Our motto throughout: “If WE cannot afford it, we don’t buy it.”)  We bought my Mother-In-Law a birthstone pendant necklace (see below).  We gave my Father-In-Law a scroll tied with ribbon that served as sort of an IOU for a family tree.  This holds special significance b/c he threw a family reunion the weekend of our wedding (ew, I know, but he meant no harm).  He gathered everyone’s information and assembled a genealogy chart on his computer, which he gave to everyone on a flash drive along with pics from the event.  We plan to hire an artist this summer when we have more free time (we’re both educators) to turn that chart into a piece of art he can hang in their home (a family tree).  I also gave my Mother-In-Law a hankie the day of the rehearsal (see below).  Oh and we gifted them a miniature version of our photo album from our photographer after the wedding.  We let them choose the design and the photos.  What you did for your Future Mother-In-Law is a really thoughtful gesture-I hope she appreciates it.

We’re giving them hugs, because they both specifically asked us not to do anything. lol
