Wedding Trend Alert: More People Are Requesting Cash as a Gift to Pay Off the Wedding
Everyone wants their dream wedding now, even if they can’t afford it. And America’s entitled 20 and 30-somethings aren’t letting a lack of funds stand in their way . . .
A new survey by The Knot found that asking for cash on wedding registries is a lot more popular than it used to be. About 50% more common last year than it was in 2016.
And one of the top things couples use it for now is to pay for the wedding ITSELF.
The honeymoon is still the most common thing couples ask people to fund, followed by a down payment on a house.
But the wedding itself was #3 last year . . . big-ticket items, like appliances, were #4 . . . and help paying off debt was #5. I wonder how much of THAT debt had to do with the wedding.
On average, couples who did ask for cash last year got a total of $1,437 from their wedding guests last year.

The term is based on “The Great Gatsby”, where Gatsby would throw wild parties just to try to get attention from a woman named Daisy. But . . . um . . . pay no attention to what eventually happens to those two characters later in the book.
Swedish town is told to keep doors and windows closed due to plague of GIANT RATS the size of cats
Residents in a town in northern Sweden are being told to keep their doors and windows shut, due to an ‘invasion’ of rats the size of cats.
The escalating rat problem in Sundsvall, caused by the relocation of a recycling centre, has even forced a local kindergarten to keep children indoors.
The council in Sundsvall has now launched an extermination campaign using snap traps, and if that doesn’t solve the issue – the rats face guillotine traps and electric shocks.
