Since society has moved away from traditional reasons for marriage, it has also moved away from traditional wedding gift giving. The idea of gifting newly married couples dates back to way before we were even born. Traditionally, wedding guests would give the couple gifts to help that ‘become’ a couple, meaning couples would expect to receive useful gifts that would help to consummate their marriage as man and wife, as new homesharers.
Long gone are the days when asking for money from your wedding guests instead of pots and pans was considered rude. The wedding world has seen an overwhelming increase in couples – many of whom have already set up their home together – asking their friends and family to donate to online cash registries.
