    Look, to my friends I give good gifts. I’m fortunate to be in a position to do so.  For my bff I gifted the bar bill, for another I have partially funded his college.But if I get invited to a lot of things that I KNOW are gift grabs I get a little annoyed {where you before my good luck?} and just send something, hoping that gets me off their sucker list.

    I would probably write a check or go the honeyfund route. I wouldn’t be happy with the fees but it’s that’s what they asked then I would gift my normal amount and the fees would come out of that so the couple would get less. They have to know that’s going to happen. I would prefer to just give them cash or a check so they don’t get less money. Maybe in the card I would put what I want then to spend money on “like money for dinner or a spare Day or something” some idea from the honeyfund. 

     

    I wouldn’t give then just a random gift. I lived with my husband three years before we got married and I’ve been married for three years now and still have shit I got from the shower sitting in a room waiting for me to figure out wth to do with it.

    The amount of people on here who wouldn’t give a gift because the couple asked for cash for whatever reason is astounding to me. I love you, so I invited you to my wedding, and as gifts are traditional and I assume if you are interested and you’d like to get me something I need and will appriciate (after spending money to throw a wedding you were invited to), I told you what would be most useful. You don’t have to do anything and I don’t expect anything from anyone, but only refusing to give a gift because I told you what I needed/wanted to kick off a new life with my new husband and you don’t like that is SO rude and petty. GOD FORBID I should give you guidance and not need stuff. 

    You know what, if you are these people feel free to walk right out of my life becasue you are clearly more interested in dictating your cultural propriatary code on my wedding than you are celebrating our love with us. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
