Depends on whether you've got a decent group of friends or not. If I believed my friends would slag me off behind my back because I asked for cash on my wedding day then they wouldn't be invited in the first place.
Wedding was last Spring and we're still waiting for the bride to get round to her thank you letters! FWIW we thought the initial request was a bit tacky at the time and in light of the complete lack of acknowledgement (not even anything oral) more than a bit cheeky in hindsight
Out of curiosity, why do you feel it is the brides job to do all the thankyou cards? I told my hubby that I would do the ones to my side, and he could do his side, this was pretty easy to work out as we have few mutual friends. So far, he still hasn't done anything, while I finally sorted mine out. Considering at the time I was working full time and he was lazing about at home waiting to become a student, I didn't see why I should be the one getting hand cramp and having to think of things to say, especially when I don't even know who most of the people on his side even were!
Bloomin Freezing will you be passing on the general gist of the comments on this thread to your friend? I obviously don't mean word for word but the fact there is an overall theme that a number of people might be offended if cash is requested?
Probably best for her/him to be forewarned if they still wish to ask for cash.
