do you have to buy every one gifts? I'm buying my bridesmaid, father, mother in law , h2b step dad and best man a gift, buy my h2b obvs has invited his real dad and his partner, are we expected to get them a gift.....only people that have helped with my wedding are my mother in law to be and bridesmaids.... advice please
We are going to buy best man (we have 2, one is our son) 3 bridesmaids pressies. We are not going to get gifts for each other. And as we have 3 sets of parents we are going to give them a potted plant each. We dont want to spend a fortune just a little token something, we weren't going to get anything but they are all contributing so we feel we should.
If you arent close to them and they havent had a big part in your day i dont think he'd be expecting anything. X
We got all parents a gift, bridesmaids, ushers and flower girls. For us it was about appreciation through our life and the support given up to that day!
We got both sets of parents all bridesmaids best ban and all of ushers.
why not make some gifts for people? save pennies and not feel so put out :)
I'm after similar advice..what have you got them all as presents?
I would do bridesmaids, best man, ushers and those that have helped. If no help no gift
If youre buying step dad etc presents when they havent helped out then yes otherwise how unfair is that. Or just buy for the bridal party. People help because they want to not for a bunch of flowers.
It's usual to buy both the Bride's mum & the Groom's mum gifts. Thereafter, the bridesmaids & page-boys and best man.
In my case, with no best man or bridesmaids, I am gifting my children (who are both reading for the ceremony).
the gifts are to thank the people for raising you/partner to be the people the are today NOT for contributing to your day
I'm hoping to do my aunt & uncle (giving me away), his mom and 3 bridesmaids, best man (he'll sort out)
Money depending of course, to say thank you. I don't have a lot of family & they mean the world to me.
I'm planning, bridesmaids & MOH, flower girls, best man and groomsmen and my mum and dad. My partner doesn't have a mum or dad xx
I'm planning on getting our bridesmaids, best man, Maid of honour, my in laws and my parents gifts that we give out during my partners speech x
I'm just getting gifts for bridesmaids, mother, mother in law to be & probably the best man... although I don't have the problem of my partners dad & a partner so..
We are doing bridesmaids, best man, ushers and all parents as they have all helped in the wedding x
Gifts are thank you gifts which means the only person getting a gift are the people you feel have contributed to the wedding. Anybody who has offered financial help (my dad and grooms parents) or emotional supper (bridesmaids and ushers, maid of honour and best man) will be getting a gift.
Not buying any!!
For me it's just anyone that has helped out in some way. Both my dad and step was are contributing financially so they are covered with a gift. My fiancees step dad is part of the wedding so getting a gift but not the real was as he's doing nothing. X
Im not buying gifts and no one has helped us with the wedding at all
We have bought all the wedding party gifts. I.e. Bridesmaid flower girls grooms man and page boys and then just our parents. You don't need it to be anything big just something personal x
