I totally understand!  My dad has very begrudgingly given me 400 dollars and that’s about it.  I kinda hate that he gets a lot of “credit” for being father of the bride—- and in reality FI’s parents and my mom have helped us the most. We’re doing gifts for all of the parents- but we’re not doing anything extravagent.  (Just a nice, large frame and we will have prints made from the wedding to go in them) 

  I don’t know the answer either but I’m curious to see what other people have to say.

 I wouldn’t think it isexpected to get your parents gifts unless they paid for the wedding or helped out a lot. I see the parents gifts as thank yous. My Fiance and I have paid for our wedding ourselves and we are not planning on getting our parents gifts.

I don’t think gifts for parents are rqeuierd or expected. I’m only giving gifts to the bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, and ring bearer. M

We didn’t get our parents anything…that is something I had never heard of until I joined WB. They helped out financially some with the wedding, but to be honest I dont think they were expecting anything. My Darling Husband and I also didn’t exchange gifts as we just didn’t have the funds at that point.
