Sigh. Leave it to the AJC to report such news! That is tacky, but then again, I feel the same way about potluch receptions… you are inviting people as your guest and because of that, you shouldn’t be asking anything in return, especially to feed themselves. But. That’s just me.

Ahhhh! That’s awful, just plain awful. What is with people these days? A friend of mine just got invited to a surprise birthday party picnic in a park and was asked to pay $25 a head for herself and husband – and last Easter I got invited to a party with an $8 cover, for 10 people in a private home. I mean, sheesh.

That’s pretty twisted. We don’t need pots and pans, we want cash and this is how our guests can be involved. Totally trying to rationalized their decision… I guess just having your guests share in your day isn’t enough.

im hesitant to judge this couple but i really really WOULDNT give my name and pics out!    i dont see anything “savvy” about it and i would rather go without than do something like ths.    why dont they just ebay their wedding and get some tacky casino to pay for it

That’s just so rude.  If you’re inviting people to celebrate with you for a special event in YOUR life, how do you have them pay?

I think people like these forget what a wedding is suppose to mean. Though I don’t see anything wrong with trades for service if done subtly (no advertisement banners at wedding reception, thank you). I am trading financial services for a couple of vendors. Putting together a QuickBooks program, doing their accounting etc.
