I am in a wedding and the bridal party has been asked to provide the food for the midnight buffet. Is this normal??? There are 120 guests and 4 bridesmaids. The bride hasn’t paid for our jewelry or makeup or anything yet….
The couple is not strapped for cash…at all. Going on 3 vacations this year and just bought a huge house that they’re doing a complete reno on. I’m struggling with the request to provide the midnight buffet food since they’re getting married at a beautiful hall. Has anyone had to do this before????

Absolutely not normal at all. You shouldn’t have to pay for anything.

@queenie17: I’ve never heard of that before. I would not pay for someone else’s event.

@queenie17: What?! That’s crazy, I’ve never heard of anything like that. What they’re asking for is certainly not standard, and inconsiderate. It’s standard for the bridal party to pay for their clothing/shoes, and bachelor/bachelorette parties. What they’re requesting sounds like grounds for a bridal party revolt.

Not normal at all. It’s their event, you shouldn’t be responsible like that.

Tell them to order pizza. On them.

I would respond that I am happy to provide food when I am hosting,but that is not the situation here.

It’s their wedding, not yours or anyone else in the bridal party. That’s ridiculous!
