Most of the wedding guests do not leave a monetary wedding gift, which Jurgis and Ona need to cover the cost of the wedding celebration. The guests are immigrants and too poor to bring a money gift, which is considered customary in their country where people can afford it. So Jurgis and Ona end up being in debt to the shopkeeper.
