It’s wedding season, and this time of year can be pretty costly. Not just for all the people out there getting married (and their parents), but for their guests, who are shelling out a lot of cash on travel, outfits and gifts. 

We want to talk about how some of that money gets spent. For those of you who have already gotten married, tell us about some of the gifts you asked for and why. What was on your registry? What did people end up giving you? Did you feel comfortable asking for presents? Which gift do you still use? What’s the most unusual thing someone gave you?

And for those of you on the giving end — what did you choose? How did you feel about it? 

We want to know. Give us a call at 1-800-648-5114, or leave a note on our Facebook page or Twitter. We’re @MarketplaceWKND
