From the parents of the bride to the best man, here are some gift ideas with which to say 'thank you'
If you're struggling for inspiration with what to get those guests who had a big part to play in your wedding day, here is some food for thought to get the creative juices flowing.
Your parents or grandparents
They may have helped to fund your wedding or even offered unwavering support throughout the planning process, so parents and/or grandparents are one of the top priorities to thank. Whether you're looking for individual presents or gifts that can be shared, there are a number of options to suit their personality.
You don't have to be a wine connoisseur to find a bottle that will go down well. Marks &Spencer has launched its first ‘en primeur’ wine range; an exclusive range of fine wines from Bordeaux, priced from £26 to £420. Buy online and receive a presentation wooden case or single bottle box.
If bubbles are their preferred tipple, how about a classic bottle of Moët which can even be personalised to suit the occasion?
This wooden hanging heart from Pure Essence Greetings on Etsy can be customised with a poem or heartfelt words to create a beautiful keepsake for years to come.
A year of art
Are your elder relatives lovers of art? The National Art Pass provides free entry to more than 240 museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions. The National Art Pass with Plus One is £100 for a year’s membership.
Honour your maids with these sentimental (and spangly) ideas.

Beautiful words displayed on a bangle will mean the world - such as these from notonthehighstreet. And with various messages available, you're sure to find one for each of your leading ladies.
