Typically, you get gifts for people to thank them for their significant contribution to the wedding, such as the bridal party. If your parents are paying for the wedding, I would consider also giving them some sort of gift to thank them for their generosity.
We are just giving gifts to the bridal party. No parents as they aren't contributing financially or non-financially to the wedding. I thought maybe we would give them a framed photo from the wedding aftewards.
Gifts are traditionally given to those who contribute significantly to your wedding- be it a contribution of finances, time, or support. We will be giving gifts to our wedding party and both sets of parents.
I’m getting small gifts for the bridal party. We will give our parents a mini photo album after the wedding. I think gift giving can be overdone and isn’t always necessary. Give a gift to thank someone, but I don’t think you have to give a gift just to give one.
I am planning on little gifts for the bridal party - the girls are getting a bunch of stuff, some of which is getting ready or 'for the day' stuff and others which is an actual gift. I've also got personalized cards - I have ones for his parents, my parents, his brothers, his sister and my sister. For the respective parents I planned a bottle of sparkling wine/champagne. For the brothers, it's little cocktails in a bottle, and everyone gets a note thanking them for their support and for welcoming me into the family, as well as how much I love their son/brother.
We also planned on giving the parents photos after the day for the mantlepiece.
We're giving gifts to our officiant, who's our close friend that is getting ordained online just for us. The wedding party and parents are getting gifts as well, and we plan on giving one another gifts. We're also giving FMIL's bf a gift since he's paying for our DJ, and we wanted to thank him for his generosity.
We had a Covid elopement and are doing our wedding celebration this year.
I got my MOH a small gift (earrings) when she ordered her dress and had planned to give her something additional at the wedding, but she ended up returning her dress and won't be in our wedding anymore. Husband purchased ties and shirts for the groomsmen's wedding outfits and also purchased gifts for them. We had friends officiate (husband is doing the actual leading of ceremony, wife is our legal JP and did our paperwork) and we are planning to gift them something (not sure what yet).
We did not do parent gifts at our ceremony but I ordered parent albums for them after we got our photos. Our parents contributed to our wedding. Since we won't have rings to exchange this year I thought about exchanging gifts during our ceremony but not sure about that. Not sure if we will do favors for guests at all.
We got gifts for our wedding party, including the ring bearers. My parents did contribute financially to our wedding (though we did pay the bulk of it), so we will be getting them a gift that includes a picture from the wedding when we get them from our photographer.
