Different wedding invitation

We just received a wedding invitation. I knew it was coming because they sent out a notice late last year. The couple have been living together for quite some time and I was considering giving them money because they probably have everything. In their invitation they included a poem which asked in an indirect way for the gift of money for their honeymoon. Tacky or not?

I would think that is really tacky the way they asked for it.

I am kind of on the fence about it. On one hand, it would be a waste for people to buy them stuff they already have. On the other, I don't think anyone should request what type of gift they want.

Any request for a gift, no matter how indirect, is ill-mannered

Probably the best way to go. Nothing worse than shopping around for a wedding gift. They mighten like it anyway. So i'll donate cash and be done with it.

Yes. Even though it makes sense to give them money, I think it is tacky to ask for it.

Quoting Anonymous: Super tacky.

I think it is the way to go, too. I find it a little irritating, though, that they are requesting it.

You know, everything is 'looked' at so differently these days. What was terrible when I was a young adult...is accepted as almost 'normal'. When I was in high school, one did not walk down the aisle pregnant. Today it is done and noone seems to notice it. So yes, it smacks of Tacky...however with all of the diffrent 'things' that are accepted today...they probably figured, Why not? I personally could not do it

Where I live, there is something that is done...it's a 'Money Dance' The guests give the bride and groom money to dance with them. It's usually pinned to their clothes. They sometimes collect quite a bit. .  







why not?
