Title: charging money for food??
Post by librarylady on Mar 20th, 2010, 10:22pm

I've been invited to a bridal shower in April. The invitation asks for $20 for the gift, and $30 for food and beverages. Does this sound right? (Is this done nowadays? I haven't been to a shower for ages.) :o I really can't afford the $30, but would like to go. Any ideas, or comment?

I had a friend who went also to a bridal shower party where she paid for the invitation also. It's like a fund raising for the bridal shower party. There's  a person in charge who manages the money gathered and buys the gifts and foods. Just think of it as giving money to someone who will buy a gift for you without you worrying what to buy for the bridal shower party. Also since it's money gathered the price for the gift will be not cheap. Hope this helps. :)

I personally think that this is inappropriate...and I am being kind here.

I am not sure about whether it's ok to ask for some cash for such a party - if it includes a fancy sit down meal somewhere out then I could see asking for a fee - but $30??? That's downright ridiculous.

I don't see any problem in this since this is the trend in the air and many people are doing these kinds of things today.

$30 for food and beverages is a bit expensive but still can be understood as the price depends on the quality. I think charging money for gift is fair enough as you would also be spending money on that, But charging money for food is not fair as you are invited to an party and the expense for the food must be borrowed by the host.

Wow, this just seems wildly unacceptable. I know it may be the thing to do now, but I still think that requiring a fee for food is inappropriate.

I think $30 is a bit too much. Some people take money. I think if you can't afford you shouldn't go.

I don't think so that it's acceptable to charge $30 for food on a bridal shower. I guess it sould be on everyoners personal will and how much one could affoard to pay for it. But if it is treally recommended to pay for it and you are unable to do  so, it better ti avouid going out there. Huhhh...

I think that it would have to be something totally fancy for me to even consider that. I think that ‘traditional’ wedding food should just be covered by the family or something else. I think that charging money for a wedding meal (where you are coming to celebrate them in the first place) just seems rather tacky.
