Is it rude to ask for money instead of a gift registry? MMW 74
Couples often ask me if it’s rude to ask for money instead of a gift registry or wedding presents.
Tricky, isn’t it? Are we asking too much from our guests, by asking for cash instead of wedding gifts? Tacky?
Friends, let’s get real for a second. Most of us are already living together or have our places when we marry. We have a lot of stuff.
So, today I’m sharing my four options for guests and gifting:
gift registry ideas (and how to avoid opening four lovely toasters)
asking for money instead of a present
having a gift registry and a financial gift option
no gifts at all
Times are changing. Financial gifts are very common these days, so go with the flow. Guests feel so much better when they know what you want.
