Wedding Gift Poem

So my friend that recently got married wrote a poem about how she only wanted guests to give her money (as opposed to gifts) in her wedding invitations. She even sent out red Chinese packets with the wedding invitation instructing guests to insert their money there and bring them to the wedding (even though there was no other Chinese aspects to her wedding except for these lucky red packets...and the fact that she is Chinese herself).

My question is (although personally I would never even think of doing this...) how would a bride and groom go about POLITELY asking for only monetary gifts? Is that even 'allowed'?
