Hey Bees! I’m curious. I always give a card with cash when I attend weddings as do most of my family and friends. From what I understand the etiquette is different in different parts, so I did add gifts to a registry after the shower (but there has only been one visit to it and my wedding is in a week!)
So, just for fun, tell me where you are from and what the norm is when it comes to wedding gifting.

I usually give a gift from the registry, although I have definitely given cash. Especially if I know they’re going somewhere overseas for their honeymoon that isn’t a resort. I had a friend go backpacking across Europe, and I gave them cash in the correct currency!

I’m from the South. I always give a gift at the shower and cash or a gift card at the wedding (might want to add that as an option?).

I always give cash and prefer cash as well.

I feel weird giving cash, like the Seinfeld episode “you gave me cash!!??!” – I always buy a gift from the registry.

Usually cash…I actually can’t think of a situation in which I would give an actual gift for the wedding.

I am in MN and I always buy a gift… usually from their registy, but sometimes not. (for her shower I gave my FSIL a set of four home made aprons, one for each season!)

I’ve almost always purchased items from the couple’s registry – it’s stuff they want! If I’m shopping too close to the date and there aren’t any itmes on the registry I like (lol yeah I’m one of those people) I’ll just do cash in a card.

@Kryje003 – That’s such a cute idea!
I always give gifts (or giftcards) to showers too but it’s always been cold hard cash for the wedding itself. It’s interesting how our customs are different depending on our location. I’m from Pennsylvania btw.

I always buy a gift from the registry! I love printing out the registry and shopping for people. It’s always fun to see what their unique style is like too.

Usually a gift, unless they have explicitly asked for cash, such as spends for the honeymoon.

I usually give a gift. If I am in a time crunch or if it is someone I don’t know very well I will do cash instead. Otherwise if we give as a group sometimes I will give cash.

I always give a gift from the registry. I don’t like the concept of giving cash – I find it so impersonal.
