Gifts?! Who should I give them to and what should I get!
What is the etiquette of gift giving for people at your wedding? I have the following situation:
Groom: card & present ordered- sorted
Bridesmaids: cards and presents ordered- sorted
My parents: I've ordered them a card to give them, but no presents yet. They haven't contributed financially really, except a small contribution from my mother towards some earrings. This is purely because they are financially struggling whereas we are fairly stable- not through any fall outs etc. Do I still get them a present? And if so, what kind of thing? Obviously considering the wedding is abroad!
His parents: Again I've got them a card (from me, not us)- do I/we get them a present? They have made a contribution towards the wedding, but in all honesty, that's mostly just covering their friends.
I'm going to do all presents in private/before hand, but I'm just struggling as I think the obvious thing is flowers but we are all abroad so makes it difficult.
Ant input or suggestions welcome
