What is your view on cash funds? I am attending a wedding later this year and they only have 2 items on their registry but also a prominent option for cash with amounts starting at $500. Since we are driving 10 hours to attend this wedding I won’t be giving at least $500. I know I can give whatever I want, but it’s still a bit annoying and in my opinion tacky to see this.

You may write a check for the amount with which you are comfortable and put in in a card.
I’m not a fan of cash funds that take a percentage to process and starting the cash gift options at $500 is pretty ballsy.

I’ve never seen that!!!!! The only monetary gifts I’ve seen requested is gift cards to Lowe’s cause they were going to be remodeling their kitchen but they also had a regular wedding registry as well. $500 is outrageous for a guest to give as a wedding gift

LOL at a $500 minimum cash fund.
People and their greediness never cease to amaze me.

Unless one is in poverty or in desperate or extreme circumstances, it is never acceptable to put your hand out and ask for money. The fact that one is getting married doesn’t make it any more OK. Disregard the outrageous 500 minimum suggestion. Frankly, I would not likely be attending any wedding this year, much less for someone like this.

That minimum is hilarious and would be completely ignored. I’m happy to give people cash for their wedding (it’s my general go to as it’s just easier than having to ship them a gift or bring a gift to the wedding) but I’ll determine the amount and it will come in an envelope. I don’t participate in online cash funds.

500 dollars?!? I bet they are trying to see what sucker will fall for that! Besides immediate family, I doubt anyone would especially with the corona situation. LOL
I would NOT even entertain this. They get what I can afford..end of discussion!

I never give to those. If I’m giving money I just write a check and put it in the card.
Asking for money is tacky enough (imo) Making the request for cash start at $500 would honestly make me reevaluate my relationship with the couple.

Maybe this is petty, but if someone told me they expected a cash give of $500, they’d be getting a card with fifty bucks in it. That’s just entitlement at its finest.

I will never forget a 2014 wedding I was invited to when I (and the groom) were TWENTY FOUR and two iPads were on the registry. I skipped out and didn’t bother with a card. If what you need are multiple iPads (these shits were expensive in 2014!! Like $800 each 😳) then my money needs to stay with me, my rent, and student loans. The balls on some people.

I would send a single dollar bill in a card and write “Congrats! Sorry, couldn’t afford your $500 minimum” and just not sign it! Lol, I would giggle as I mailed it! They deserve it as they are presumptious and greedy af!
Ps absolutely love your user name.
