47. The Venue
"My parents definitely gave us the best wedding gift. I wasn't expecting anyone to pay for our wedding; we had developed a pretty intense savings plan with monthly contributions to a joint bank account where we would pay for things. My parents sat us down when we began looking for venues and dropped the most amazing news that an engaged couple would want to hear. They graciously offered to pay for our venue, which is by far the most expensive aspect of the wedding. Of course we had some strict guidelines and a budget, but this took such a weight off our shoulders.
We are so thankful that now the gifts we receive at our wedding will allow us to save for a down payment on our first house together rather than having to pay off a bunch of wedding debt. Thanks, Mom and Dad!" says Tiffany, 29.
