We’ll probably use it to make us whole again and take anything extra with us on our honeymoon.

The goal is to have our wedding paid for in cash, so any gifts can be used towards a downpayment on a home. 2014 is wedding year, 2015 is hopefully buying a house year!

We put all our wedding gift money into a separate checking account that we use for date nights! It’s awesome! I used to feel guilty about splurging on a nice dinner out, but now we use the date night card and it’s not taking money from our account that is used for essentials. I like the idea of usign the money to invest in the relationship/marriage and think that spending quality time together does more for our relationship than any gadget/appliance/furniture.

We’ll probably use some on our honeymoon for expenses which shouldn’t be much and then save the rest for a downpayment on a home since we currently rent. I didn’t get any cash at my two bridal showers, just a couple gift cards.

JenGirl:  I love that idea! I might lobby for us to use some of our gift money (if we get any) in that way. Anything else will probably go towards a down payment on a house.

JenGirl:  What an awesome idea! I love it!

We bought a dishwasher with ours, and paid back the money we took out of savings for wedding purchases. Feels great to not have any wedding debt, and an almost-finished kitchen!

Waitingbee57:  I don’t expect to receive a lot of money, we’re only inviting 12 people (our parents, our sisters and SOs). But the money we’ll receive will be used for a newlyweds’ project, such as having our first romantic trip together or buying our first house.
