Its weird that they didnt get you a card or something, but no, dont say anything. Why even bring up something that is over and done with. Its just going to bring up drama. Just enjoy married life and have fun getting settled in your new life 😀

As much as I would want to say something, I probably wouldn’t. It’s tough. I’m really shocked that you two didn’t receive anything for the parents. I always thought parents were the first to buy and/or offer money if they could. Sorry to hear that people lacked in that department. I know it’s not all about presents and stuff, but it is thoughtful.

I would absolutely want to say something but I can’t think of any way to do it with out sounding rude. Maybe I would slip in something sly to the parents about the dog sitters, “the dog sitters said…” and see how they respond? If they say nothing then they clearly don’t want to pay. As for your parents, I guess it depends on the relationship. If they didn’t pay for anything for the wedding, I would have expected something too. I would say something to my mom, but I know everyone’s relationship is different.
