Folks, I am all wedding-ed out. It’s just t-minus two weeks (from tomorrow) for my own big day, and my brain, my poor wee little burnt brain just cannot think about weddings any more. I cry uncle. Or perhaps, in this case, I cry bride. I’m not sure. Regardless, I need your help.

Dear Mrs. Wise Wise Beautiful Shopper!
I need your help. We are getting married in June! We are paying for most of it so of course I need to keep cost down, but yet make it nice.
I am having the hardest time finding inexpensive yet good quality gifts for our parents and for the Groomsmenâ€¦ my girls were easy.
Grooms men – I was thinking a flask like everyone else doesâ€¦ we only have 3 to buy for. Is there any other ideas? They are all young in their 20’s – to early 30’s.
For our parents – I don’t want to do the hanky thing, or photo albumâ€¦ I want something different. Please help!
Seeing as how my wedding is going to be of the “yeah, come to the church and we’ll get hitched, and then we’ll go have some dinner… you know, if you feel like showing up” variety, I am not dealing with these sorts of issues. At my first wedding we gave photo albums to the parents and… I can’t even remember what we gave the groomsmen. A big dose of bad karma, I suppose. Ahem. Anyway, Danielle needs some ideas. If you lovely people come up with some kickin’ ideas, I would be happy to search for deals on said items. Is it a deal? Please don’t make me think any more about weddings right now.
