Disclaimer: I am in NO WAY planning on asking anyone for money instead of a gift. My fiance and I have registered at a couple stores that we plan to include on the website and/or by word of mouth if we're asked.
This is just idle curiosity...too much time on my hands during my lunch break
For those of you who are closer to your wedding and have already received some gifts (or those who are already married) what was the general "ratio" so-to-speak of physical gifts to cash gifts (not asking for the amount)? My fiance comes from a family that usually gives cash (their choice, to let the couple getting married to pick something at their discretion) and I think he thinks that a lot more people give money than gifts. For some reason, I think I would bet that more people would go off the registry than give money, but I could be completely wrong. Is this something that vastly differs from family to family and region to region?
