    We’re passing it on that we’d prefer money over anything else if someone offers a gift (We’re not expecting money or gifts from anyone.)

    If we get some cash, I really don’t know. Put it towards bills or ferret it away for a rainy day?

    Fiance will be pretty excited about spending all that money but I will want to save it for long term financial goals. Maybe we can split it.

    We will be moving from Kentucky to Georgia right after we get married. And we’re paying for the wedding! So any money we receive as gifts will go into savings to help us prepare for the move/transition. We’ll have money saved ourselves, of course, but every little bit will help!

    I selected joint savings/investments, but we specifically earmarked ours for a downpayment on our house (we received quite a bit of money). We did buy a few unpurchased registry items, but it was with our normal spending money.

    My fiance and I already own a home, so luckily we don’t need to use it for a down payment or anything major like that. My parents paid for our honeymoon back when we booked it, but we plan to pay them back with the wedding money.. I have a feeling they’ll tell us to keep it as their gift to us.. so right now our plan is to just stick some in our joint savings and some in our joint checking. We have no major plans for it.. and I think it all depends how much we get.. in our circle gifting cash is the norm for a wedding gift, so I do assume we’ll get some.. but what do I know, we may get ten bucks.

    Mr CL have requested that we don’t get any physical gifts because there isn’t enough space in our flat.  If people would like to give something, we’d prefer money to go towards a house deposit as we’re fed up with renting!

    We used some of the money for wedding and other for what we didnt receive as gift from the registry.

    Probably a downpayment on a house, but who knows. Either that or savings.

    I voted other… We will probably use some for honeymoon spending, some for a new fridge and or sectional and save the rest. I have no idea what amount we will get; I am not expecting anything. If in fact we do get monetary gifts I would like to use it towards those things.

    @Hyperventilate:  are you doing that all via word of mouth? I am not that excited to recieve gifts…and not because I want cash – really we are stable and secure (blessedly so) but I feel weird being 30 yrs old and asking for hand-outs.

    We saved some and used some to splurge while we were on our honeymoon.

    Hoping to put it towards a kitchen remodel that is desperately needed. We purchased a fixer-upper and that’s one of the last things that needs to get done!
