Considering most of my budget is coming from them I dont think they would want a gift. My father HATES tangible gifts. I am paying for the photographer myself so I got them a parent album.

My parents paid for the wedding. They said they didn’t want a gift. We are going to surprise them with hard cover photo books from Shutterfly though.

I got my mom a diamond necklace while on my honeymoon..but plan on getting her a nice, framed wedding picture because I know that’s what she wanted instead of an album.

@gelaine22:  Exactly this.  My parents paid for my wedding, and I’m sure they would not have been happy if I had gotten them a gift.  However, we have given them a couple of framed pictures of us and/or themselves at the wedding. (I’ve been married for almost four years and still have not even started on my albums, since I have to pay someone to edit most of my images.)

Am I the only one who didn’t know about a parents thank you gift?! ๐Ÿ™‚ Whoops! Oh well, I was already going to get both my parents and my FI’s parents a framed picture of us from the wedding anyway. That shutterfly idea is good too though!

I’m doing Mix Books!  For Mr. C’s parents, I’m doing one of him to give them at the rehearsal dinner.  Mine, I’m debating whether to do one of me for my parents together or just my mom and then do one of the dogs for my stepfather – we’re close, but I was in my 20’s when he came along, so I’m not exactly his little girl.  After the wedding I plan to do Mix Book parent albums for both sets of parents.

I bought my parents a cruise (4 days).  They never take vacations so it was really special to them.  We went too (but gave them plenty of alone time) which was nice to spend time with them.

I got them a photobook, which I don’t really count as a gift.  But for my dad I got him a picture frame that said ‘No matter how old… always daddy’s girl’ and then printed a pick from our father/daughter dance.  And then for my mom, and little jewelry box with some inscription.  The frame was only $10, and the box was like $40.  Nothing expensive, just a little meaningful token of thanks. I’m not a snowglobe person and would just see it as clutter, so it really depends on if your parents would like osmething like that.  I know mine would not have.

a friend of mine just bought her parents an overnight stay at a winery about two hours away. i thought that was so sweet – her reasoning was that they’ve done so much and helped a ton so they deserve a little de stressing break after the wedding too ๐Ÿ™‚
