Ladies, I've read so many posts about gift giving, money dances, inviting entire congregations, and asking for money flat out. Each time, someone asks if the issue is tacky/acceptable, and someone always says "It might be accepted in that region or culture."
So share with us: what are some of the regional or cultural norms that you know or practice? Are money dances done at every wedding in your city/state? Do certain regions of the country usually give cash instead of registry gifts? What are the regional and cultural practices you've known about -- I need to get them out on the table because I'm inviting folks from all over! I need to know who I'm offending and what I'm leaving out.
