A friend of a friend has a registry setup through HoneyFund. I made a snarky comment about it. Friend said "well in the South it is against etiquette to give cash for weddings. Very taboo! This is the only way to show guests that B&G won't be offended by cash." I'm sorry, what? Who in their right mind is offended by cash???
I live in the South, have for many years, but I didn't grow up here. Most weddings I go to are out West or up North. We are all very "just because everyone in your region does [rude thing] doesn't mean it isn't rude" on this board - does that apply to regional taboos? And is this even a regional taboo?? It's certainly something I had never heard of before, and I feel like they are all either confused, have been misinformed by crazy older relatives, or are making excuses.
My reaction to most everything on the internet today:
