Money is favoured as a wedding gift by a hefty percentage of soon-to-be-married couples.
Cash gifts for wedded couples could be put towards a mortgage.
Over a third of prospective newlyweds ask for money or vouchers as wedding gifts instead of charity donations, according to a first direct survey.
The poll of almost 2000 people found that 35% of participants would ask for money and 22% would request presents from a gift list. Just under a fifth of respondents said they would allow guests to bring a gift of their own choosing and 3% said they would prefer that donations be made to charity on their behalf in the style of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
