    We have
    Mother of the bride
    Her husband
    Father of the bride
    His wife
    Father of the groom
    His wife.
    2 best man
    Maid of honour
    Bridesmaid (sister)
    Junior bridesmaid (daughter)
    Page boy (son)
    Grandparents
    2ushers
    2readers
    Cake man (good friend doing it cheaper for us)
    Couple friends that have helped with money

    Do we buy presents for everyone?? We also do not have a mother of the groom as unfortunately she passed along time ago so do buy for f.o.g wife? Although they didn'ttgatd a lot to do with raising groom. We are on such a tight budget but I don't want to upset anyone. Who do I buy what do I buy and what are you supposed to say when you give them gifts????? Please help panicking that we will do this wrong!!!

    Gosh lots ppl lol, I would give the motb and smotg a bunch flowers to say thank you and maybe flowers for the friends that helped too or wine glasses and some wine n choc for them. Men I would do something personal but small for them. Same for best men and something little for ushers maybe jewelery or aftershave or alcohol depending on age. Bridesmaid jewlerry they can wear on day as their thank you pressie, grandparents alcohol or chocolate, not sure if you get readers anything but could do flowers or some chocs. But you buy for who you want. We are doing flowers for motb and motg, but because my parents are helping a lot we are also getting them something extra like a night away or something as a thank you x

    Hummm... We gave our moh (my sister) a pretty clip for her hair (she saw it in a bridal shop and really wanted it) we also gave her a bracelet matching our collar them with maid of homer on it, I got our bridesmaid the same bracelet just with bridesmaid on it, they were only £7 I can message you the webiste if you want? We got both our mums a bunch of flowers we got our florist to make up. We got the ushers cufilnks from a well known card shop beginning with a C they were only £6 and then got the best man and father of the bride and father of the groom the hip flasks from the same shop that was only £8. That's all we brought for as we had to keep cost down! Xx
