KTB big question: gift lists or cash?

KTB big question: gift lists or cash?

A recent study found that an increasing amount of couples are asking for cash gifts at their wedding rather than the more traditional home ware items which are usually given on the big day.
In the survey, 2,167 newlyweds were asked about their preference when it came to gifts on their w-day and they found that 26% said that they asked for a financial contribution and a further 37% asked for a donation to their honeymoon.  But would you be so bold to ask your guests to give you cash?
With the average cost of a wedding in the UK a whopping £18,244, it’s hardly no surprise that many newlyweds go ahead and ask for cash and with many couples already living together before they say ‘i do’; they already have their fair share of cutlery, towels and ornaments traditionally gifted!
Although some guests may still prefer to buy you a nice gift – it’s important to approach the subject in the right way if you decide that cash would be more benefit.  Explain early on in the planning process that you will not be compiling a gift list as you and your husband-to-be have been living together for a while and already have all of the things you need. No one wants to end up with nine toasters! Or, you want to wait until you have the house of your dreams before choosing decorations and furniture.
We’ve put together some top unique wedding gift items for all budgets, take a look!
