- Wedding: February 2011
I’m having a semi-destination wedding (it’s in the US, but we have a lot of Out of Town guests) over a 3-day weekend. We’re including a “weekend events” card. The problem is, the guests will be expected to pay their way if they want to participate in certain events and I’m not sure how to communicate this or if it needs to be communicated on the invitation card.
We’re doing: 1) Welcome Dinner 2) Afternoon Nature Walk at a State Park 3) Golfing w/ my Dad. These are all optional and casual. Events #2-3 are going to be the ones that guests pay for–the state park is like, a $5 entrance fee; golf is more like a $150 green fee. The invitation will have my Dad’s contact info for the golf and specifically instructs guests to call him to reserve ahead of time, and so he can relay the payment issue on an individual basis. Also, the events are listed on our website where it’s clear that people will have to pay their own way.
It just seems weird to put “$5 per person” on the invitation. Is it okay to omit this information? Do you think people would expect that we would pay for the state park entry fee and stuff for them and would they be offended if they didn’t know?
