I am not a native of western PA but will be marrying here. I am from the south, where the custom is to bring or send a gift from the registry. What is typically done here? Gifts or money? I am not sure what the local customs are and I would like to know what to expect. It feels odd to me that people would give me cash - where I'm from only a close relative would do that. Not that I'll complain if it happens!
Although I am not a native, I am borrowing your custom of a cookie table, and I can't wait for that. Best wedding custom ever, as far as I'm concerned.
