I’m Engaged! Now What? 10 Questions I Have Now That I’ve Said “Yes”
Gifts or Money?
Is it tasteless to ask people to give simply money instead of housewares? As someone who used to work at Linens ‘n Things (RIP) in high school and college, I know how much money and energy is wasted by people running around looking for expensive charger plates, crock pots, and wine glasses. So I’m all for requesting money that would go towards a honeymoon trip. If not for that, at least towards the new home we’re looking forward to moving into (preferably in a swanky part of Brooklyn…). However, my fiancé thinks it’s a little tacky to ask people for money. But why ask people for things we don’t really need and may not use when everyone needs and utilizes cash gifts?
