Research Shows Most Newlyweds Prefer Cash as Wedding Gift!
Tue 29-05-2012

According to a research from First Direct, 31% of newlyweds prefer to ask for money or vouchers as their wedding gift!


The survey of 2.015 people, showed that couples no longer make gift lists or a wedding registry.

Most couples would prefer to receive cash, guests were less keen on giving it (21%). However in 2012 cash is top of the list of gifts people would prefer to give (33%).

People still feel embarrassed about the size of their gift and would rather the couple didn't know how much they'd spent (34% in both 2011 and 2012).


Interestingly, and maybe a reflection of the difficulties young couples face in getting on the housing ladder, the number who think that giving money towards a mortgage is a good idea as a wedding gift has risen from 18% to 21%.
