I am not expecting a gift from my parents as they are paying for a big part of the wedding but I am sure they will get us a little something (they are just like that!)

My ILs I am sure they will get us something although they are also contributing smaller portions to the wedding but once again it is not expected.

Both sets of parents have eluded to chipping in for big purchases that we need to upgrade in our house!

We’re getting a cash gift from our future inlaws and hopefully use it towards the rehearsal dinner. 😉 As for my parents, I think they will probably also give us a cash gift but I would rather they use it on themselves (they’ve been hit by the current economic crisis).

My parents gave us money towards the wedding and then said they will give us “something else” come the wedding.  His parents haven’t said anything and (so far) are not contributing to the wedding, so I guess we will see.

We did not expect anything from our parents. They contributed what they could to the wedding and we were grateful for that. My Mother-In-Law, however, did give us an embroidered blanked and $1K as a wedding gift as well. It was a nice bonus!

FIL’s are getting us a bed set 🙂 and they are contributing to the wedding
I don’t know about my parents yet. They probably will get something but just haven’t said anything about it yet.

Our honeymoon was my parents’ gift to us, but we paid for the entire wedding ourselves. My Mother-In-Law got us our monstrous pot and pan set and our rehearsal dinner!

Both my ILs and my parents contributed financially to the wedding.  Both of them said, here’s $X, it is your wedding gift and you can use it however you want.  We used much of it for the wedding.

Both sets did give us cards, and my Mother-In-Law knitted us an afghan.

My dad is basically giving us a set budget and we can use whatever we want for the wedding and use the rest for whatever we want. However, he’s also hinted at giving us a down payment for a house (!!!) last time he was up here visiting. NO idea what the FIL’s plan to contribute to even the wedding…that will be a sticky conversation to have seeing they just remodeled their entire house and probably won’t have alot of extra $$$.

My parents gave me a small amount of money for the wedding & they are going to get us a physical present, but I don’t think it will be very expensive. FI’s parents are paying for th Rehearsal Dinner & Fiance thinks they will give us a cash present, but we arn’t really sure.
