Weddings are expensive, but is charging wedding guests for their dinner becoming a trend? On Reddit, user u/LDeezy posted about a bride who charged $75.00 per plate after the guests sent a "yes" RSVP.
But some reddit users agreed that this is a new trend.
One user wrote:
"My sister was going to do this. She planned to charge guests $75 per person to attend the reception at her wedding to cover the cost of the venue instead of asking for gifts. The venue changed and she didn't end up charging money. Apparently, this is a fairly common thing now, but I can't help but think it's incredibly rude. People (family in particular) often feel obligated to attend weddings and gifts aren't really gifts if they are considered obligations. I don't think anyone should be expected to pay to attend a wedding."
Several other people also said they were invited to this "pay for your plate" type of wedding. This issue with this specific ask is that it happened AFTER the RSVPs were sent
