Traditional gifts or cash—what's up in your world?

A bunch of us were just in a meeting in which we were discussing wedding gifts—specifically, whether people in their home towns traditionally gave couples a physical gift or a check. It seems to divide along very regional lines—one editor who grew up in Brooklyn said that everyone gave money; a woman from New Jersey said guests went right to the gift registry. And then there's the editor from Seattle—but we won't go there. Anyhow, we're just curious about how this shakes out across the country. Love to hear from you... —Sally, BRIDES Magazine
