Alright. I’m a little confused about something. Now, I know gifts for the GMs and BMs are standard and we’re working on those. But how does it work exactly for the parents?
My parents contributed $300 towards the purchase of my dress and that was all they gave in regards to the wedding. Not a lot but I appreciate it and wasn’t expecting anything from them since they aren’t exactly wealthy. Now, they’re flying into town a week before the wedding so we’re going to take them to all the touristy spots in DC, Baltimore, and Philly. Treat them to a bit of a vacation.
Now, his parents have only contributed their bad attitudes towards the wedding.
I heard that you get gifts for those who were supportive but the support has been limited to $300 and a bunch of complaining. I feel like taking my parents around sightseeing is kind of like their gift and I thought I could just get them a lovely card. And I was just going to get his parents a card and that’s it as well. But I wasn’t sure if that was ok. Am I required to purchase them gifts if they haven’t been emotionally or financially supportive in any way and haven’t helped with anything in regards to the wedding? Is it a tradition? Or am I good to go with just cards?
Let me know. I’m seriously confused. 🙂
P.S. I know they aren’t required to give anything and I’m not expecting it. And I know they don’t have to care about the wedding. But I mostly want to know if I am required to buy them gifts despite that fact?
