So I'm getting married in two months and have been a bit unsure of how to go about registering for gifts. I think almost every option here is a bit a tacky, but what seems really tacky is just asking for cash up front. But my fiance and I are moving to London (from the US) after the wedding, so we really don't want to have more stuff to ship there. So- is it okay to just ask for cash?
I mean, I know I don't have to ask for anything at all, but what do I say when people ask?
IT'S NOT OKAY TO ASK FOR CASH. What, were you raised in a barn?
When people ask, you say, "We're about to move to London. We really don't need anything."
They'll give you cash if they feel like it.
