Forget the gift registry, nearly one in two couples ask for cash at wedding. I did

We didn't really ask for cash for our wedding. We just didn't ask for anything… so everyone asked us. Even then our replies went along the lines of: "Umm, we don't really need anything – we can't really carry anything." You see, not only did we have an apartment all set up, it was on the other side of the world. 

Me being – well – me, we’d also saved every cent we needed for the wedding trip home and the honeymoon on our way back to London.

But judging by our guests’ response, we had accidentally asked for cash. We were overwhelmed when, on our marriage 16 years ago now, our 55 closest family and friends gave us a total of $3000.
