Asking for Money

In recent years, it has become more popular for couples to ask for money for wedding presents.

This often has a mixed reaction, usually because of generational differences and traditional expectations.

It is important that guests are giving money towards something specific, for example the honeymoon.

The couple should explain in their extra information sheet that is sent out with the wedding invitations why they are asking for money.

Money is a practical option for couples who have an established home and do not require the household items that were traditionally given as wedding presents.

Another option is to set up a gift voucher list for one store; guests will often prefer this to writing a cheque.
