That is how most brides express that they want cash gifts, but personally, I wouldn’t give cash at a shower.

They may have a lot of stuff already. Are you close enough to ask them?

To register for 300+ gifts would be a NIGHTMARE to me. They may have gotten overwhelmed. They may or may not add more.  60-70 items left on the registry? Or total?

@Bwed2012:  wow- maybe they do want cash! But in my circle cash is a no-no at showers. Almost always should be a gift.

@Bwed2012:  Yeah, I agree about the “they want cash” thing.

There will be so many people, I’m sure if you wait until the wedding to give a wedding gift they won’t notice. Espeially if it’s a cash gift.

We aren’t registered for a lot. Cash would be nice, but I also wouldn’t mind people buying me random things.

If you buy her something she doesn’t want she may just end up returning it. I dunno. People can be hurtful, so I guess don’t think too much into it!

We’re not planning on having many items on our registry and we are not “looking for cash” – we just don’t know that many people and about a quarter of those will be invited to the shower.

Just look at the registry to get a sense of her taste and then buy something not on the registry.  You don’t HAVE to buy something from the list.  Just include a gift receipt.
