No saving it? In that case, I’d use it to pay off my wedding and/or honeymoon and keep the money we’ve already saved 🙂 Boring, I know, but I’m a saver at heart.

I’d pay off debt, or spend it on upgrading our honeymoon in a few weeks!

Student loans! But I’m guessing that’s too similar to savings? My DH and I would probably take a trip to somewhere in continental Europe – maybe Italy or France.

Put it all towards the honeymoon since that is all we’re paying for anyway. Jeez wish this would happen.

If I had to spend it, I would probably get a nice new bed and bed frame and then maybe put the rest towards a really nice vacation over the winter.

I’d pay off all my credit card debt and buy a new car! Then the only debt I would have left is school loans. And I would have a nice, working car 🙂

Pay off an annoying old medical bill and go on a vacation!

@confettiegg2000:  Oh, or this! Putting it toward loans would be great. I dont think that counts as saving!

Me: “Um, hello Mr. Contractor.  Can you finish all of the DIY projects we started for our yard?  Fencing, removing the dead trees, building a shed, and landscaping?” You can? Great, you do that while I sit on the patio with a beer.”

I guess it’s semi-wedding related because we’re doing a backyard wedding.

Use about $2k, pay off assorted small debts.  The rest of it would be towards the down payment for the house.
