Wedding Wednesday – Gifts for the Parents of the Bride & Groom

This week has been CRAZY at work!

Sorry this post is a bit late, but the bright side of it being Wednesday night instead of Wednesday is that it’s that much closer to Friday.

Today I wanted to share with you the gifts that we gave to our parents the night before the wedding.

For our moms I custom ordered these bracelets from ScrapheartGifts on Etsy.

Mother of the Bride Groom Gift - Mrs. Dessert Monster

Each has a pendant that says mother of the bride/groom & two messages: one from me & one from my husband.

Both of our moms wore them on the day of the wedding.

The gifts we gave our dads we actually bought several months before the wedding on our trip to Italy.

We were in Burano, Venice & bought 2 lace handkerchiefs at a lovely little store. We had such a great time talking to the shop owner. My husband & I were really proud of ourselves for carrying on a 20-minute conversation in Italian with someone who didn’t speak any English!

We knew my husband’s dad would be touched to receive a gift from his homeland.

My cousin embroidered the handkerchiefs with a little message from me – the same cousin who made the flower girl dresses. She’s so crafty!

We gave the gifts to our parents at the rehearsal dinner.

We wanted to take the time to appreciate everything our parents had done for us. Not just helping us prepare for the wedding, but preparing us for life.

More gifts in store next week!
