Do you think wishing wells and couples asking for money instead of gifts at weddings is acceptable or not?

Personally, I’m not fussed but lots of people get quite riled up about this one.

Wedding gifts are not as needed anymore. the custom began as a way to set up the home of The married couple. Nowadays most couples already have their home before they get married. Money for a honeymoon or to help them pay off the wedding or anything else is a much better suited gift
