Like, if there was a cute, small little thing on the present table or something. Are there times where it’s more acceptable than others or not at all?
(oops totally forgot to highlight the correct board! can someone move it for me?)

Not acceptable. Your guests have already given you a gift. Don’t hit them up for their pocket change too. If you want honeymoon money, do a honeymoon registry.

Not ok with me, your guests are already probably giving you a gift so it’s rude to ask for more.

I saw a honeymoon fund jar on pinterest. I made one and set that jar up on top of our bedroom dresser and that is where WE put our pocket change. I wouldnt ask for more money from my guests knowing that they probably already got me a gift to begin with.

People are already giving you a gift or a check, I think the jar just looks grabby IMO.

TOTALLY tacky. It’s all I could remember from a wedding.

Tacky and rude. I’m sorry but I REALLY wouldn’t like it and would think of someone differently. Make a honeyfund registry and spread it via word of mouth.

I think this is a crazy idea and really rude I would be insulted if I saw this.

Well good thing you asked first! I also agree it would be in poor taste and kind of gift grabby.

I don’t really think it’s tacky. The pinterest pic is cute. I won’t do one though because I am a freak and feel weird asking for money and presents. Even inviting people to my shower makes me feel bad. And I’d obviously be judged as “grabby” or “tacky” by lots of people. haha.

Tacky, but I’d love to hear from some of the people who said it’s okay about their experiences and why it is seen as okay in their view/social circle?
There are definitely some “traditions” that are seen as fine in some circles and tacky in lots of other areas (cash bar, dollar dance, etc). This just isn’t one I’ve heard of as being fine.

I think it’s fine. I have been to a few weddings recently that had a birdcage on the gift table. People who brought gifts popped their gift on the table and people who gifted money put it in an envelope in the birdcage. If you expect a gift and money then that is bad form but if you think some will bring a gift and others money then it’s perfectly fine.
