I am thinking about writing a letter to Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law and giving it to them in the lead up to the wedding.
I just want to articulate how grateful I am that they have such a cool son (my FI!) and thank them for their part in making him the most well rounded individual I know!
Do you think this is too cheesy and might come across as patronising? Or do you think they may see this as a nice gesture.
Has anyone else done this I wonder?

I think that’s a really sweet idea. I think if I were to be a parent, I would really treasure a letter like that. I’d say go for it!

I say go for it, but write it in a card (even a blank one) – at least for me, that would feel less awkward (to write and to read).

Cool idea! I’m thinking about getting my In laws a gift and I guess there’d be a little card attached. I still don’t know what to get them though, it’s such a fine line. We’re still pretty polite to each other, I don’t know how to do it without it getting awkward…

Yep, I say put a nice note in a card attached to a gift if you plan to get them one at the rehearsal dinner.
Unless you’re planning on writing them a six page letter, I don’t think it’s cheesy at all.

Cool – so a card is good (a letter is possibly too much, I get that now!)
We don’t have rehersal dinners in New Zealand but I will give it to them on the morning of the wedding
