Jusyt wondered what you were all doing regarding presents? So far I have bought the bridemaids some gifts but what about groomsmen, flower girls, page boy, mother and father? What is the done thing?
We are hoping to get the lads some cufflinks or something, children are getting goody bags to keep them quiet, mum is getting a pocket mirror and dad a pocket watch with thank you and our names and wedding date engraved.
Hi Lippy, they are really good ideas! Might 'borrow' the engraving one!
We gave our bm's their jewellery as gifts and got the 2 boys cufflinks in their family crest to wear on the day and then have as their thank you gift. We didn't get gifts for the dad's but gave the mothers flowers during the speeches

Borrow away! I only got the idea from a flyer in a wedding mag, thought it was a nice keepsake after the flowers at the speeches have gone!
We gave the following
My dad - pocketwatch
My mum - waterford vase engraved with hearts
His dad - Name a star gift box
His mam - Snowbaby figurine making a wedding cake (she collects these and made our wedding cake)
Groomsmen - boxes of cigars
Bridesmaids - Dresses-jewellery- and 'how to walk in high heels' girlie encyclopedia type book.
Usher - Fancy Tie pin
Flowergirl/pageboy - Thorntons chocolate plaque iced to say thankyou for being our pageboy/flowergirl.
Thorntons mmmmmmm, brill idea R n R
Groomsmen - Will get them a voucher for their fav restuarant
Bridesmaid - Got them bathrobes, with their name on it, jewellery sets & make-up sets
Flowergirl & Pageboy - Honestly i have no idea
Parents - Were paying for their rooms on the night, and Mam and H2b's Dad's Partner (his Mam passed away years ago) will each recieve a bouquet of flowers.. Might also get them a voucher for a meal for their fav restuarant..
It's an expensive lark this isn't it
