Do you give cash as a wedding gift? Flickr/Scorpions and Centaurs

As wedding season kicks into high gear there is the topic that everyone loves to hate – the wedding gift. With so many couples sharing a home for years before walking down the aisle it may not make sense any more to buy your friends a blender. Some couples are looking for new, and controversial, ways of requesting gifts such as registering for honeymoon activities, a Playstation, or even asking for cash. In fact, in many cultures, cash is the required gift.

Are the wedding gift rules changing? As a guest, do you find these new gift options creative or crass? What's your least favorite new wedding trend?
