Destination wedding/reception

Tessa, on January 21, 2022 at 5:10 PM Posted in Planning 2 2
We are going to FL for our destination wedding. I was planning on live streaming but now a bunch of family want to come and that’s fine. My question is about the reception, I was thinking of going out for a meal after the wedding as we are not having a formal reception. Is it tacky to have the guest pay for their own meals/drinks we do not have the funds to pay for everyone’s meal? Any suggestions on how to handle this would be great!

    If you invited people to your wedding, you need to properly host all attendees with a reception even if it's pizza and salad. Guests should never pay for their food and drinks.

    Are the guests coming on their own or have you invited them? I think this will determine. If they have initiated that no matter what, they wanted to attend the wedding, I suppose it would be okay, however, if you were the ones who invited them, IMO it would be rude not to pay.
