Didn’t Avo do/write/say something to encourage guests to not bring tangilble items — except easy-to-transport envelopes?

We received about 15 gifts at the reception.  It was pretty split–all of my family brought cards (aka money) and almost all of my husband’s side brought gifts–the toaster, shower curtain, etc.  We were lucky because our wedding was in our hometown, so we just had everything loaded into our car and drove it home in the morning.

Do you have a frame of reference from what  happened at other family/friends weddings with a similar pool of guests?  Like I was able to anticipate that my family would give us money because that’s what everyone did at my cousin’s wedding last summer.  Whereas, at my husband’s cousin’s wedding a couple of years ago, everyone brought gifts (large, cumbersome ones!).  Thinking of those two things, I was able to assume that each side would do similar things this time.
