Interesting Fact - Weddings

According to a survey carried out by wedding website confetti.co.uk, Four fifths of British couples getting married this year will ask for cash instead of presents.

(The reason that most of them don't want to create a wedding list, with the traditional toaster, or cutlery, is they have lived together and so already have the essentials.

The problem is, asking for cash is an awkward thing to do, as unlike some cultures, in the UK there is no tradition of giving cash to the happy couple, and in the UK we hate talking about money.  However, according to the Guardian newspaper, those who feel awkward asking for cold hard cash, are increasingly using poetry to do it for them, with verses like:-

"If you were thinking of giving a gift to help us on our way
A gift of money in a card would really make our day!"

Of course some lovely couples, who feel they have everything they need, ask people to give money to their favourite charity. (You know who you are.)

Maybe when you send out the invitations, you should just send an invoice.)
