My friend received another couple’s wedding invitation with mine in the mail yesterday and on the invitation said “when you rsvp, pay to cover the cost of your meal per person.” Both on their insert and the invite it listed cost per person for adult/children, and on the insert card had banking information so that you could submit payment before you rsvp!!! And while I hate them/know it’s a way to cut costs, it’s a cash bar as well.
Idk bees. While it did say instead of gifts to do this, I’d decline this without thinking about it. If you can’t afford an evening wedding/mealtime wedding, that’s fine! I’m always of the opinion that you should have the wedding that you can afford, like a cake/punch or another non-mealtime reception option.

Wow, I have never heard of a couple doing that before…I wouldn’t bother going to that wedding. I’d rather go to a cake/ punch reception that doesn’t have fees to attend.

IT’S HAPPENING. PEOPLE ARE SELLING TICKETS TO THEIR WEDDING.

Yeah, I’m right there with you, have whatever kind of wedding you want to have, but have it be in your means. If you can’t afford to buy your guests dinner there is nothing wrong with that, just don’t provide one and so something a little more simple. I think asking them to pay for their own meal to attend your wedding is tacky personally. I can’t see myself wanting to attend a wedding where they asked me to.

I wonder if even people like their Grandparents were forced to cough up
Nana give me $80 please for the privilege of seeing me wed

I’m with the PP’s, asking someone to pay to come to your wedding is incredibly rude. I’m planning mine on a small budget and if it comes to it I’ll either reduce the guest list or go for a cheaper buffet/DIY reception idea.

Wow. That’s really bad. How much are they charging may I ask? Is it a particularly fancy venue?

That’s so gross. Easy decline.

I’d also want to know if they expect gifts on top of that.

I’m also curious of the prices the “guests” have to pay.
On one hand, paying for dinner could be significantly cheaper than paying for a gift. Since they said this is in place of gifts. And makes sense (maybe?) if they truly don’t need/want gifts (or people) to attend. Haha
On the other hand … hmmm. I’ve got nothing. I’m baffled! And I want more details. 😇

I hope your friend declines this rude tacky mess. But part of me is curious how many people actually go along with it. Just…ick.

I’d be so curious to know how many people actually go vs how many were invited. I would not be attending this though lol
