Just out of sheer curiousity, for those that recieved monetary gifts for their wedding, what did you and your Darling Husband do with it? And for those to-be brides, what would you and your Fiance plan to do?
Darling Husband and I used the money to buy a new motorcycle and the accessories for it. The gifts don’t cover all of it, but it did cover the bike and the brand new pipes. I love it! 🙂

We paid for most of the wedding, so we were grateful to have some gifts to help replenish our bank accounts. They will eventually probably go toward a house, but we’re still a couple of years away from that!

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Furniture! My couch is ready to meet the curb. There will be a few other home upgrades, and the rest would probably be split savings/honeymoon, depending on the amount.

We will take any money and pay off any debt (mostly honeymoon and credit cards.) Anything left over will be put into savings – short-term, long-term, emergency fund, investments, etc.

we will be using some to pay off what little money we had to borrow for the wedding, and then hopefully there will be some left over to start saving for a house downpayment. We hope to move into a house in the next two years. I really have no idea what to expect though.. friends of ours who have been married recently in our area and social circle haven’t given us numbers… they’ve just said that we will be pleasently surprised.

We put it into savings. Between the honeymoon, wedding, and the new car Darling Husband got our savings was on life support.

We’re planning on using it on furniture, food on the honeymoon, and paying off that mortgage!
I did check “personal purchases” too because we might use some on a TV It’s all speculation though until we actually get there!
