I must also say that even though DH and I had lived together for three years before we were married, we got no "useless" gifts - I love and use all of them still 10 years later!
Loathe! Why should wedding guests have to pay for your honeymoon or landscaping? You wouldn't ask for money at a funeral instead of flowers!
Loathe them but at the same time i have no problems contributing to friends honeymoon/house account. I just find a bunch of cold, hard cash impersonal and people usually give much more than they can afford.
I totally get the whole being set up when you get married so you don't need anything, in that case i'd prefer to just not ask for gifts. Horses for courses but i really find them impersonal and i'd never have one. I'd much rather a quirky vase that becomes a memory 20 years later.
Don't care but I usually buy a present because I hate handing over cash

Love them - so much easier than trying to find a perfect gift plus most weddings I've been to recently the bride and groom already live together so have just about everything they need !
I am fussy with accepting invitations though , if I don't know them very well I will decline , ( family I've never declined but friends of friends or clients I'm not close with I often do decline ) I know so many people who complain about going to weddings/showers etc and buying outfits and presents - if you really are not excited to go or can't afford to then don't go
Very indifferent to them. I don't mind contributing to them but will buy a gift if I have a great idea for the bride and groom.
We recently went to a wishing well engagement party but bought presents anyway because they don't live together yet and had some ideas for a gift.
