That is wonderful! That money will def. help with a down payment for a home, a good honeymoon, or new furniture!

That’s wonderful! Just a quick question–is she expecting you to use that money toward the wedding or is she just giving it to you and you can use it for whatever you want?

Either way, that’s great!

That’s very generous of them!

Keep in mind, if they pay for the wedding you’ll find yourself catering to their wishes.  They could use this leverage to make you change your venue to a church, etc.

Ditto.  Also just be careful in general.  And please don’t plan anything or book anything with this money in mind unless it is in your bank account.

That’s so awesome.  She obviously really cares about you both and wants to support your marriage.  Such a great feeling.  Congrats, what a weight off of your shoulders huh?

That’s wonderful news! As long as she doesn’t use it as a way to gain power, which it doesn’t sound like she will. Happy planning!
