The number one most common question I am asked is how to ask for money instead of wedding presents. It makes sense that this comes up; with the average cost of weddings rising, and more and more couples paying for their wedding themselves, it's understandable that a bride and groom might fantasize about a financial windfall rather than a new set of towels. But etiquette frowns on so boldly making such a request. So, what is the polite way to ask for money rather than a wedding gift? Click here to find out.

The other thing you can do is ‘register’ at a site like http://www.uponourstar.com – that’s what I did. I created a bunch of ‘wishes/gifts’ and my guests contributed to them, then after the wedding we got cash. The list was personal and I thought it had a bit more personality that just asking for cold hard cash.
