No, but my parents insisted on giving us something anyway, even though I told them they’d done enough already.

Both sets of parents contributed to the wedding – they got us shower gifts but not wedding gifts

No. But if they want to give you something extra, that’s their decision and I’d appreciate it.

Nope, my mom gave me shower gifts but that was it. They contributed a lot to the wedding, so I actually got them a vacation as a thank you.

Absolutely not. My mother covered the entire cost of the wedding and I in no way expected her to do that, let alone give a gift on top of that.

No we didn’t expect anything. They surprised us with a hotel room and dinner for the night of the day after the wedding as well as a contribution to a downpayment on a house. We were blown away and would never expect anything from them since they paid for the wedding.

Um, NOPE. And I really hope that you’re not pissed off if your parents GENEROUSLY paid for your wedding and didn’t get you an ADDITIONAL gift.

No way. My mom has indicated that they’ll gift us whatever the difference ends up being between my wedding and my sister’s wedding, but I’m not sure what (if anything, when all is said and done) that will be. I’d never expect a gift on top of paying for a wedding.
