    try something nice like a pocket watch or golf balls or something that reminds you of your dad and then try a necklace or earrings or a photo frame personalized for your mom!

    or you could build them a scrapbook of the wedding from dress fittings and engagment pics to party pics

    Shop for your parents and your bridal party as if it were their birthday. Cookie-cutter bridesmaid and groomsman gifts tend to be cheesy.

    We have decided not to do individual gifts for each parent. We are going to do a present for each set, because we want to thank them for being great parents, which they did together. :)

    we ended up getting individual gifts for each parent; it was just easier that way.

    my mom- an iPod and a board game that my dad and she used to play when they first starting dating

    my dad- a kindle with a cover

    FMIL- a pandora bracelet with her and FFIL birthstones, plus her 3 sons' initials, my initial and FI's nephew's initial

    FFIL- a year's supply of steak deliveries from Omaha Steaks

    For the groomsmen, we purchased their tux rentals.  I know some people think this isn't an appropriate gift, but it was what his groomsmen most appreciated.

    For my girls, I purchased a Coach wristlet at the Coach outlet.  They were about $50 each, regularly $100.

    For our parents, they each received a bottle of their favorite wine.
