I get that times have changed when it comes to traditional wedding etiquette and I must admit I have pretty much heard it all when it comes to wedding questions but this one takes the cake...literally.
I received an email from a guest to an upcoming wedding and this is what she said, "The bride & groom are asking for guests to bring food & drink to their reception. This seems highly inappropriate. Do you know of anyone else who has ever such a thing?"
Well, I say...Wowza! This seems more like a potluck than a wedding. I truly don't know very many people that wouldn't be confused by this one; especially since this is a gift giving event. Unless this is a family only, informal wedding, guests should definitely be treated as guests and at the very least served a meal and entertained. If you cannot afford a wedding there are a lot of other wonderful ideas that are much less expensive; like a brunch or dessert reception. Weddings can be expensive I understand that but you should never make your guests feel like they are the ones imposing on you.
What are your thoughts on this one? Please share!
