Never have I ever... given cash as a wedding gift

Lynnie, on 4/March/2019 at 13:05 Posted in WeddingWire

Do you always buy a physical gift off the couples' registry? Or do you prefer to give money as a gift?

Have you ever given cash (or check!) as a wedding gift?


Next Question: Never have I ever... spent so much money!

Back to the Beginning: Never Have I Ever!

    In my culture it’s expected to give cash as a wedding gift

    I've given both but I find wedding gifts personalized to the couple from me would be more meaningful, unless of course, 4 other couples did the exact same thing, with the same gift.

    I think we are going to request donations only, and have a donations to a cause rather than us as an alternative. I feel weird requesting money or gifts; but as a guest, I feel strange giving something I'm not sure about rather than a donation. Cash can be used for so many things.

    I only gave cash cause I know every couples could use it to help paying off the wedding or they could use it to buy something the want.

    The past 2 weddings I’ve been to have been monetary gifts only. I feel like this day and age, most couples have already lived together for a while and don’t really need more “stuff”.
    Personally, we will be asking for monetary gifts as this is the case. We live in a small condo and have been living together for 3 years now. We don’t need any more stuff in here 🙂

    I like giving money, because it's easier and harder to ask for haha

    I give a physical gift at the bridal shower at the wedding I give presentation to cover the meal and drinks for the evening.

    I have only ever given cash as a gift at a wedding. All of the bridal showers I have been to have had registries that I have bought gifts off of, and then cash for the actual wedding.

    Money. Bridal showers tend to be for gifts, and everyone appreciates receiving money at the wedding.

    More or less a gift. It was for my sister and it was easier to buy for them. I was asked to go to my FH brother's wedding,but we had literally just started to date and I didn't know them at all.

    I always give cash. Easier for me, better for the couple. Plus most weddings I've been to haven't had registries.
