I was pondering the idea of a frame with a photo of Fiance and I as babies and then on the opposite side our invitation where they could later put our wedding photo! 

Unfortunately Future Mother-In-Law beat me to it and got us that at my bridal shower! lol go figure

I have been looking for something similair.  I am making them a coffee table book of wedding related (bridal shower, engagement party, rehearsal dinner pics) and wedding day pictures. 

For the night before I have been considering getting the moms a small piece of jewelry (maybe a pin or earrings)  and the dads cufflinks. 

I am still not at all decided but those were just some things I was thinking about.

I got this charm for my mom who was given a Pandora bracelet for being a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding.’

I am giving my dad a fishing lure engraved with ‘father of the bride’.

We also have three sets of parents and two sets of grandparents to give gifts to.

We are giving a wedding photo album to all the parents and grandparents after the wedding.  We also got my parents a two night stay at a fancy resort they’ve been wanting to go to.  They’ve helped soooo much with this wedding and have expressed that they wanted a small getaway afterwards

I hope lots of people reply to this thread because I think this is hard. Since our parents are paying for a lot of the wedding, I want to get them something special but not overly expensive. I like the idea of a coffee table book for the parents.

I think I might try to find a framed cute/sentimental quote and decorate it with quilling or paper cutting to make it special.

I’m leaning towards the idea of a gift certificate for the restaurant where we’re getting married, so each set of parents can visit later and have a nice, romantic dinner. Also, we’ll give them each a nice card and the promise of a small album or nice framed photo when we get our pics back.

We gave them a card on our wedding day thanking them for everything they have done and promising them a photo book of all their favorite wedding pictures. We are going to tailor it to each set of parents so that they get the pictures that are the most meaningful to them. As soon as we get the pro-pics we will get started on it! They are excited for them.

@iheartnerds: Same idea here. I love giving a gift they’re going to use for more than one day.
