Asking For Money Instead of Wedding Gifts

Is It Tacky to Ask For Money Instead of Wedding Gifts?


Although wedding gifts are always nice, sometimes what you really need is help with paying off your mortgage or funding your honeymoon. I've been in situations where I was asked to give money and personally I didn't find it offensive. I was just glad that my monetary gift will be put to good use by the newlyweds. What about you — do you think it's tacky to ask for money instead of gifts?

I think other people see it as tacky, but I don't see how it's any tackier than a registry.  It's just people saying exactly what they want!

I don't think it's tacky at all. Give the couple what they truly want, I say!
