We are getting gifts for the bridal party (including the flower girls & ring bearers) and our parents.  We will be giving them the gifts at the rehearsal dinner, or after the dinner when most people have left.

We’re doing gifts for our bridal party. I will be giving my gifts at a bridesmaids luncheon the weekend before and I think my fiance will give his the evening before, after the rehearsal dinner and before we meet up with other guests for a drink or when they’re getting ready on Saturday.

We did gifts for our bridal party members and a couple of other people who had been especially helpful. We didn’t do gifts for our parents, mainly because we couldn’t think of anything and were low on money at that point! We are thinking we will order/make albums for them once our pictures come in, though.

I think traditionally, bridal party and parents get gifts.

We bought gifts for the bridal party, including the 2 flower girls.  Our parents and grandparents, oh and we are going buy some flowers for the person who is hosting our rehearsal dinner. We plan on giving the gifts at the dinner.. I hope the Out of Town people won’t be offended.

We’re doing gifts for bridal party, parents, and our officiant. Our officiant is a friend and not accepting payment–otherwise I don’t think that is necessary.

Planning to give all gifts at the rehearsal dinner.
