         By Callie Athey, Lillie-Beth Brinkman, Helen Ford Wallace   QUESTION: I recently received an invitation to the wedding of my cousin’s daughter. In addition to the invitation itself, the envelope contained the internet address of the couple’s website, which had information about the couple, as well as a list of presents they hoped to receive — presumably the modern equivalent of the bridal registry. It also suggested that in lieu of giving a traditional present, guests might want to help fund the honeymoon.
