I think it is perfectly acceptable!! People appreciate cash more, almost, because they get to choose what to spend it on!!

I plan on giving cash when I am in my best friends wedding this summer, and also gave cash last summer to another friend who I was a bridesmaid for!

Don’t listen to your mom, it sounds like that might be an old school rule, and this is modern times! LOL

@LilliePad:  No– cash gifts are totally fine. However, when my FI is in the bridal party he does always get a gift because he feels weird giving his friend’s money. I have no problem– it is what they want.

It’s perfectly fine.  In most cases, it’s preferred.

Cash is a completely acceptable gift. What your mom is referring to might be something they used to do at the time when she got married. I wouldn’t worry about it too much, I think majority of people give cash these days!

I agree cash gifts are perfectly fine. I would prefer them if it was my wedding! I was a BM in a wedding last year and we put a $100 bill in the card as our gift and didnt think twice about it until now lol.

Cash is great. They can spend it (or save it) for what they want!

YES! and if they are leaving right away on their HM they will appreciate the cash.  If you can… it’s just a suggestion, but give them a few $5.00’s and singles so they can tip people along the way.  Seriously that eats up some money.

Cash is awesome! As a bride myself, I know some of our closest friends/bridal party have already told us they would be giving us cash. Totally acceptable.

Cash is totally fine to give, even for the wedding party.  It’s always my standby gift if I don’t have time to buy off the couple’s registry.
