Gift giving for the wedding

As the bride and groom, my fiance and I had planned to give each of our parents a gift as a thank you for their help with our wedding. I also had a small gift for each of my parents, and picked out something from just me to his parents for welcoming me to the family. Is this expected/etiquette? I was going to have my fiance do the same for my parents but not sure if that is just too much and too confusing at this point honestly 馃槀 and has gotten expensive. But we aren't sure if that is the expectation, to give a gift from just the bride or groom to the future in laws. Any thoughts?

    I think you would be good with a gift from the two of you to each of them (or each couple, depending). It would get super expensive to do a bunch of individual gifts!

    It鈥檚 more of a Pinterest trend rather than actual etiquette. Most couples give parents a photo album after the wedding when pictures are printed.

    I think it's a lot of money and just very confusing. I think it's sufficient to just do a gift for each set of parents from the both of you.
