This is why you shouldn't give checks as wedding gifts
Well, the check...bounced. They probably didn't expect us to deposit it so quickly. The bank didn't return it to me, so I presume it's being returned to my in-laws. They'll realize what happened, then, although we won't bring it up. They really didn't have to give us anything, and they were too nice to take us to dinner this week anyway.
Anyway, as the title says, if you want to give money as a wedding gift, cash is best.
