Don’t get too excited.  Lots of parents have no idea how much weddings actually cost.  If you really are interested in having them contribute, you should get a set dollar amount and plan off of that.

My parents want to help out more than they can financially afford.  They would give me the moon and the stars if they could, but I know that financially speaking the Fiance and I will have to foot a large part of the bill.  Thats okay with me… the most important part is that they are present.

That is exciting! The way I see it, any contribution is helpful, right?  Fiance and I are paying the bulk of the wedding ourselves, but we have been happily surprised by certain “gifts” along the way.  Since we weren’t expecting them, we really appreciated them!

My mom paid for my dress ($1,200), shoes ($125) and offered Monday to pay for our catering.  I was definitely not expecting that.  FI’s parents paid for the ceremony site rental too as a Christmas gift, so that was helpful!
