Weddings should be a celebratory occasion — two people join in matrimony while their family and friends all come together for a giant party.
But who should pay for that?
TikToker Kelli (@kellikeylimepie) raised that question after she showed off a wedding invitation from a couple who asked guests to … pay for their own meal.
Kinda cheap, right? Sure times are tough, with inflation and all, but come on.
In fairness, weddings can be really expensive. According to a survey conducted by The Knot, the average cost of a wedding in 2021 was $28,000 (including the ceremony and reception).
Which is a huge expense for most couples. But is asking people to pay for their meals too much?
Lots of commenters thought so.
It’s true that lots of weddings have a cash bar where guests buy their own drinks (and we assume this couple didn’t spring for booze, either).
But think about it: You take time out of your day to go to someone’s wedding — maybe even travel long distances — and then you have to pay for food, too?
This commenter put it the best.
Here’s the video. Was the couple out of pocket for this?
