Make sure the sticky issue of who's coughing up for your big day is clear from the off. Unless you're determined to go it alone, be direct; ask your parents whether they would like to contribute and, if so, what figure they had in mind. If you prefer a more subtle approach, ask them whether there's an element of the wedding they would be happy to cover, from the flowers to the dress.
