    You give a gift for those that did something in the wedding – all BMs (yes, all), all Groomsmen, anyone doing a reading, ring bearer, flower girl, and parents.

    We’re only doing people who are involved in the wedding. So the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and then we’ll get a bottle of wine or something for FI’s dad and stepmom, since they really helped us out and are hosting the rehearsal dinner.

    I would not include anyone who is just walking in the processional, like your uncle.

    I think all of the bridesmaids should get the same gift, as well as the groomsmen should get the same gift, regardless of whether or not you’re covering costs for them. Yes, that means you’re spending more money on them, but I think it would be tacky to get one bridemsaid/groomsmen less because you bought her dress or covered the cost of tux rental. 

    For my wedding, we’re doing gifts for the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and our parents. We don’t have a flower girl or ring bearer.

    I think the BMs and GMs should all get gifts. Even if you covered their costs, you shold give everyone equal gifts. If you want to give some people something extra, I would do that at a private moment.


    I would add in gifts to the parents (assuming there is not Jerry Springer drama) but that is nice to do at a separate time as well.
