    Etiquette wise, walang nice way na ilagay yan sa invitation, it's tacky. Mas maganda word of mouth. Just tell your parents, relatives and close friends at sila nang magbalita sa bisita nyo. Or kung may wedding website kayo, pwede nyong ilagay yung website sa invite at sa website niyo ilagay yung cash is preferred.

    In Canada, it always stated on invitation cards as "Presentation Only". Everyone knows that cash is preferred but is not a must. You see, di ba mas madaling magbigay na lang ng cash kesa maghanap ng gift? At tsaka it is now the practical way of giving a gift, let them decide what they want to buy.

    I'll go with - "Monetary gifts are appreciated / preferred." Yes, I 100% agree that cash is better. Marami kasing mga wedding gifts na nasasayang kung nadodoble lang or di magamit / gusto ng couple.

    lalo na at sensitive ang mga pinoy na hindi uso ang return or exchange sa mga regalo.

    Pero medyo awkward nga, bakit?ipambabayad nyo ba yung matatanggap nyo kung sakali or you want to buy something specific, kasi kung may gusto lang kayo bilhin, lagay nyo na lang sa wedding registry nyo,para yung mga tao,alam na kung ano ang ibibigay.

    Problema sa mga gift register, masyadong TAGA ang mga presyo ng department store.

    Bottomline: kung MAY PINAG-ARALAN naman ang mga panauhin sa kasal, mauunawaan nila iyong 'CASH GIFTS PREFERRED'. Ngayon kung MANG-MANG o WALANG PINAG-ARALAN ang mga panauhin ... aba ... huwag ka nang magimbita ng mga MANG-MANG o WALANG PINAG-ARALAN ....

    Think about it...What would be the best gift for you? Especially kung bagong kasal ka, di ba mas maganda na me head start ka financially? At least that's how I would look at it.

    ^I agree and I didn't say it's a bad thing, but what I'm trying to say is, sa mga pinoy, lalo na yung mga nasa 'pinas at hindi pa masyado sanay sa kalakaran sa ibang bansa, hindi pa sanay ng ganon ang lahat ng tao, maybe sa iba ok lang, sa iba, alam mo na....

    may natanggap ako dati na naglagay na lang sa loob ng invitation
    ng mas maliit na envelope na size ng "bill", syempre maayos na envelope at ginawa nila kakulay ng motif.

    sabi nga ni tatang JT, hindi naman mangmang ang mga inimbitahan
    without any words, alam na namin lahat ibig sabihin nun.

    naka receive ako ng wedding invitation na katulad niyan..


    enclosed or naka attached sa wedding invitation ang mail-typed envelop na ka kulay ng motif sa wedding at may naka sulat na CASH GIFT..


    try that one TS...

    Walang magandang paraan ng pagsabi niyan. Asking for money is always tacky. Parang sinabi mo na bayaran nila yung kinain nila sa kasal niyo. Paano kung wala silang perang maibigay, paano kung mag-regift lang sila? Does that mean di mo na tatanggapin yung regalo nila?

    Pero tama si tatang JT kung marunong umunawa yung mga guests mo kahit wala kang ilagay sa invitation mo cash ang ibibigay nila sa iyo.

    Mas maganda huwag ka na magsulat ng kahit ano regarding gifts, kasi ang kasal ay celebration ng pag-ibig niyo, at hindi para kumita kayo.

    Hindi ako sang-ayon dito. Pinakamainam iyong MALIWANAG na mas gusto ninyo ang SALAPI bilang REGALO.

    Hindi naman obligadong magbigay ng regalo ang lahat. Maaaring may mga panauhing mga hirap sa buhay o mga maralita na 'di kayang magbigay ng regalo. Hindi sila pinipilit magbigay.

    Ngayon, kung may ma-insulto dahil SALAPI ang gusto ninyong REGALO .. MGA MANG-MANG at WALANG PINAG-ARALAN iyon ... pasensya na lang sila ...

    Well kanya kanyang opinion talaga yan. Kung sa iyo tatang sa kasal mo ok lang yan, di sige go ka lang. Or kung nakatanggap ka ng ganyan, at ok lang sa iyo eh di walang problema.

    Pero huwag mo namang sabihin na porke na turn off yung guest sa ganung salita eh wala na silang pinag-aralan. Baka conservative lang sila. Personally I wouldn't be insulted if I get that kind of invite, but I don't have money all the time to give also.

    Siguro magkaiba talaga tayo ng opinion tungkol dito at para sa akin lang hindi talaga ito maganda na isulat pa sa invite. Mas maganda pa rin na word of mouth lalo na kung sa ibang bansa kayo titira pagkatapos ng kasal. Then again personal opinion ko lang ito, at nasa TS pa rin ang final choice kung ilalagay niya yan sa invitation niya.

    Wedding poem

    "If you were thinking of giving a gift, to help us on our way.
    A gift of cash towards our house, would really make our day.
    However, if you prefer to purchase a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own way"

    http://www.wedaholic.com/archives/th...ding_gifts.php

    Or a wedding Wishing Well

    "To support us on our special day you may wish to follow with tradition and bring a gift. Or alternatively you may like to help us make our honeymoon a little more special. For this reason we have chosen a wedding wishing well. The wishing well will be at the reception where we can receive your best wishes and contribution. "

    Noong 25th wedding anniversary namin, iyan ang nakalagay sa invitation. Ganoon din ang linagay ng magulang ko sa nakaraang 50th wedding anniversary nila.

    WALA NAMANG NABASTUSAN sa mga invitation namin ...

    Nag-arkila kami ng "wishing well" kung saan hinulog ng mga panauhin ang kanilang mga CASH GIFT.

    Wala ring NABASTUSAN SA WISHING WELL ... marami ngang NATUWA sa wishing well ...

    Pinakamahalaga sa lahat: MALIWANAG SA MGA PANAUHIN KUNG ANO ANG GUSTO NINYONG REGALO!!!

    Di ba nasa tradition din ng mga Pilipino ang "pasayaw" (or something?) na nagsasabit ng pera sa bride and groom? It's also a form of giving money to the newly wed. I've heard that this practice is still done in rural area?

    Therefore, giving a cash gift is something that had been done for centuries in the Philippines. Giving it as a gift would simply be a simplified version of the pasayaw.

    I've attented a lot of weddings already and a number of them preferred cash than registry gifts. I haven't heard any guests commented negatively regarding the cash gifts.

    I think it's easier to bring paper bills in an envelope that bringing an electric fan!

    mas praktikal na pera ngayon, kaysa limang rice cooker at apat na punch bowl, at 3 rice dispenser ang matanggap mo.
