Apologies to people who read both this and my Facebook page; I recognize that there is significant overlap between the two. Bt what do people think of the concept of giving wedding guests the alternative of giving gifts to charity rather than items from the registry?
To anticipate some possible comments: 1)Yes, I've done some perfunctory Googling and looked at what etiquette columnists have to say. I'm more interested in what people's off the cuff reactions are. 2)No, I would not actually include such a request in a wedding invitation.
