tbh id prefer to donate cash to be honest, people tend to put sh*t they cant afford or wouldnt buy for themselves on registries

ive seen some with bed, linen bathrobes etc .. i side eyed the hell out of that sh*t

Ive never received an invite like that. But it is commonplace at weddings/baby showers to see an insert from the bank or building society with account info etc etc. in the invitation OR via text msg (baby shower) and it makes sense to me esp with the jacked up prices out here. Let's say they register for crocker which costs $300 USD if it were bought in the states it would be $100-$175 USD better i give them that $300 and it pay for a month's rent or car loan payment/towards kid's college fund.


i may have been against it as well..

sh*t i can recall being against the whilst registry thing all together

Yes Monetary gifts please. I ain't got time for folks that don't follow the registry. Did I ask for a bath bucket, spoons, or plates that have our pictures on them.(Its a Nigerian thing).

Just bring your flying Saucer head tie and a purse full of cash and lets partttttayyyy.

I'm not interested in gifts for my babies I'd rather buy my own stuff. The person who is throwing my shower created a registry for me because I wasn't feeling it.. lol
I don't really want people's money either I just want their love and support to be honest. What ever I do receive, I will graciously accept of course.

For weddings, gifts are for those moving in together for the first time/first time homebuyers and starting a life together. If they're old or if they were together for years & just shacking up there is no need for any household gifts or whatever. Monetary gifts only


Birthdays asking for money is tacky

Baby showers, asking for money is not necessarily tacky but if you ask for money & have no registries I'm not going. Especially if this is not your first child, that's extremely classless & ghetto.

RAAATID!!! TooBlessed where have you been?!

SL talks a whole lot about weddings! Im trying to find the thread and it pages and pages and pages of weddings. lol

Birthday party = me showing up with my two long hands, my long gut to eat and drink you out of house land and home. I hate when it's a birthday party and you have to buy liquor/food and ninjas cut the cake up in domino like slices! If a party isnt free food and juice why am I wasting my time? dont let me see bony curried goat and white rice either!

Ive never heard or seen of a money only bday invite, i would side eye and judge the person so badly RUDE! Better you ask me to donate to a charity/cause.

Afro IA with the registry having items the couple/parents WOULD NEVER buy. I've gone to stores seen the items/prices laughed my way to the car! People have some nerve boy. Then you turn up at the event and there is noot one person in attendance who could have afforded those items *hiss teeth*

IF i were to get married now, I'd appreciate a mixture of cash and gifts from my registry but mainly gifts
