this has been my experience at the Jewish weddings I have been to, (except they always have card boxes so the guests don’t hand the money directly to the bride and groom.).

That’s actually supposed to be an etiquette rule for all weddings.  (The idea is that the couple may be leaving on their honeymoon or whatever, and thus it would be a big hassle for them to pack up and carry home all the wrapped gifts.)  However, it seems like a lot of people have forgotten this rule.  So it’s unpredictable what will happen.

I always send the gift anyway. However, if your guests aren’t Jewish / don’t follow formal etiquette rules they may bring their gifts.

Yeah I don’t think this is particular to Jewish weddings.
