Got an Answer?
In lieu of gifts, I have seen this done. Typically gifts are all household needs, if she already has a house, why not just get the money.
What a tight arse. But if you are gonna go, at least you wouldn't have to get her a gift. Can sort of see why she already owns her own place. Lol
I find it absolutely disgusting that people expect their guests to pay to attend their wedding. If they can not afford to pay for their guests then maybe they should have a smaller wedding with out all the over the top decorations which are only going to be thrown out later anyway.
I think she would have to be a really close friend for me not to think this wasn't rude. Also she would be getting a really crap wedding present from me.
I would never and didn’t ask my guests to pay. You want a wedding you pay or just elope haha
Nah. If they can't afford it why make other pay. They are meant to be your guests and they were invited. I think it is rude
It is pretty common, we're not asking people to pay a cent towards our wedding as i find it inappropriate but I've never been to a wedding where i didn't have to fork over for the meal. One couple had this huge expensive wedding yet we still had to pay 75 bucks each to go. They had an open bar but i hate that as an excuse because not everyone drinks. I have had to miss out on receptions before because we couldn't afford the meal at the time. I don't like it but it's becoming the norm these days
It's fair to say that you might spend that amount on gifts, but it's still rather tacky as not very traditional or in the spuri of tbe day!
It depends who it was for. I'd have absolutely no problem paying for someone I was close to. It is a very common practice for people to pay for their own meals.
