I don’t think its too soon. If they have already told you what they are contributing then I think they know that payments are done during the course of the engagement. And I doubt that you parents would expect you to pay for everything up front and then get reimbursed from them. Just talk to them.

I think it makes way more sense for them to give you the money now. We opened a savings account really early and we’ve earned a couple hundred in interest to date.

Why don’t you just ask them what they feel like a reasonable timeline for their budget is? Communication is key – guessing won’t do you any good! Maybe you’ll get lucky, and they already have it saved and can give you a lump sum now. You could put it in a high interest account and withdraw as needed – and make the money work even harder with the interest income.
