Asking for money as a wedding gift: OK or no way?
Money can’t buy happiness but it sure AF makes things easier in many regards. How do you feel about asking for money as a wedding gift? Have you ever been asked for cash and felt happy to give it to a couple getting married or were you offended? Are you asking for cash for your wedding? How did you phrase it—and how do you plan on using the money?
You may use the comment thread on this page to discuss wedding gifts of cash—the asking for, the giving and the receiving, or to pursue other points of off-topic, freewheeling discourse. As always, please remain respectful of each other.

We’re thinking about asking for contributions towards the honeymoon. It seems better than a bunch of stuff we don’t need, the guests know what the money goes towards, and it means we have to worry less about the cost of the honeymoon in addition to everything else. We also considered donations to charity (which we have seen at other weddings) but are probably not going to go down that route.

We’re not asking for money but I’m not against the idea of it. I just don’t feel comfortable asking for it.
