I am getting married in June 2013,i am currently getting my invite things together.I am stuck on the wording of the invites.We are asking our guest to pay half of there meal at the reception because we have just had a baby 5 months ago and down to one wage which is challenging.I dont want to come across as being rude.Does anyone know of any sites or if they did this,how did they word it???

Welcome to the Hive!
I don’t think that you will find a web site that will give you wording for that. You may want to think about making your wedding smaller, going for just a desert wedding, putting the wedding off to save for it or a cutting back in other areas. You really can’t ask your guests to pay for themselves, even if it is just half.

I am sorry you are having to alter your plans, but in no circumstances is it appropriate to ask your guests to pay half the cost of their meal.
If you cannot afford to cover the cost of the meal, change the meal, reduce the number of guests, or change your reception to an afternoon tea, a morning brunch or some other celebration that you can afford.
