    I would definitely put that in our house, for just random extra money & change, but I’d never put it out at the reception! I don’t think my guests would like it either..

    I think it’s fine to keep at home and throw your own loose change into.  Expecting others to do it is tacky.

    I worked with a girl who had a honeymoon fund jar on her desk at work (at the far edge, so I know it wasn’t just for her own use), and I think she had a lot of nerve to do it.

    @strawbabies:  Yeah, way tacky. That’s just a step up from begging.

    @rebwana: “Reminds me too much of the tip jars at Starbucks.”

    EXACTLY! Tip jar at my wedding? I don’t think so.

    I’m in the ‘wouldn’t do it myself, but wouldn’t be offended if I saw it at someone elses wedding’ camp. I’d probably put a couple of toonies in there and leave it at that.

    I love this idea and might use it… IN MY HOME. for jsut FI and I… I definitely would not use it at my wedding, but if I saw it at someone elses I would probably put some money in it and not be offended. I wouldnt even think twice about it..

    I wouldn’t do it, nor would I contribute if I saw it at a reception.  I think it’s a little off-putting and very gift-grabby.  My bartenders aren’t allowed to have tip jars because it’s rude, so it’s rude for me to do it as the host.

    Absolutely rude to ask people to contribute.  I wouldn’t have or ever contribute to someone.

    You have invited guests to your party, they have more then likely brought a gift, and then you are going to try to shake them down for pocket change. 

    Begging for money is never appropirate.

    It would be super cute at home, but not at a wedding. I don’t even like tip jars at coffee stands or resturaunts.

    Like others, I am definetely planning on doing one at home near the coat rack, where we can empty our change from the pockets every day.

    Seriously!!! I mean I just think, “you’re already getting gift and cash as wedding gifts, why do you need more!” It’s beyond tacky, i think actually writing that you want cash on your invitations would be less tacky than this!!!
