We’re Low on Cash: Can We Ask Our Wedding Guests to Pay for Their Meals?

The Wedding Guru says: This is a first for the Wedding Guru, but here’s my answer: Asking any guest to pay for his or her meal is a BIG no-no! It’s also a terrible way to start a relationship with your future husband’s family. Either cut the number of guests from his side, suck it up and pay for them yourself, or try to convince his parents to contribute “whatever they can.” It would be better not to invite anyone from his family than to ask them to pay their way!
