What is the proper wedding gift etiquette?

It is customary that on your wedding day both parents should receive a gift, whether they are gifted something individually or collectively. However, when you choose to give them your gift is up to you! If you have a moment to spare on your wedding day, you could do it then sometime before the wedding, or perhaps at the rehearsal dinner. Make sure that you have time for a private moment with your parents once they’ve opened your gift.
