A bride and groom have sparked a heated debate on social media after asking wedding guests to pay for their honeymoon instead of buying them a gift.
A guest shared her dilemma in an Australian Facebook group after being invited to both the wedding and bridal shower.
However, she became confused after the couple asked guests to contribute to their honeymoon fund by transferring the money through an app after opting out of having a gift registry.
The guest asked the Internet if she should make one big payment for the bride and groom – or split the money into two transactions for each event.

But not everyone agreed on paying for the vacation of the newlywed wedding, with one woman saying, ‘They’re asking for payments? I would either not give one or it would be a fairly small compensation. ‘
‘I know it is acceptable to ask for money or gifts, but personally I am not comfortable with it. I suggest paying once and if you don’t want to come to the shower empty-handed, maybe have a bottle of champagne, ‘someone suggested.
Another woman suggested asking the couple where they are going for their honeymoon because “you’re not sure where the money is going.”
See if you can give them an experience or add something to their restaurant tab. You can even upgrade their hotel suite or add things like champagne on ice. If they get mad because you do that, they just want money, ”she said.
However, many defended the bride and groom saying “it is quite normal” for couples to ask for money instead of material gifts.
‘Only pay a small amount via the app for every occasion. These are modern times and this is a pretty standard custom these days, ‘wrote one woman.
Another said she believed the couple had done nothing wrong by asking guests to contribute to their honeymoon fund.
It simply says that if you plan on giving a gift, they would appreciate money. It doesn’t matter what they use it for, it’s a gift, ”she explained.
“It’s no different than keeping a record of where you buy what they want… I don’t know why everyone has their panties in them.
“I would only give one amount, as I would normally give a bachelorette party for the bride and then a wedding present for the couple. In this case, it all goes to the couple, so just one deposit. ‘
One woman also agreed, saying, “I personally don’t have a problem with what she’s asked for, I’d rather do that than give something that’s not used.
She said she would make two transactions, one on the bridal shower and the other on the wedding day.
‘I actually think the direct deposit is a great idea. Because I personally rarely carry cash with me and would have to take a special trip to get it … direct deposit is so much easier, ‘she said.
