    it's always nice to thank the hosts of your party- since it's your parents, a sentimental gift of some sort, i think, would be appropriate.   As to what to wear- it kind of depends on where it's being held.  I don't know if there is certain etiquette, but I would say wear something that you are comfortable in, is appropriate for the place, and something nice :)  Keep in mind, people will be taking pictures, so it helps to look nice :)  You don't need to get FI a gift.

    Engagement pictures - I've done them twice (the first time b/c it was free and to get a feel for it)-- wear clothes that are YOU.  Wear something that you are also comfortable in because if you're not, it'll show!  Usually couples wear one casual outfit (maybe for the beach) and one nicer outfit, perhaps for your city shots.   I think it's great that your photographer is making the clouds purple!!!  GL!
