Eating At The Reception Depends On Your Gift?
This is straight out of the bridezilla playbook however I do believe the groom had to sign off on it too.
Let's start with what is known as (in some areas) "the cover your plate rule". And no it has nothing to do with putting a napkin over your food when you leave the table.
Basically, in some regions, it used to be considered good etiquette for guests to choose a wedding gift with a similar price tag as the cost per plate at the reception—therefore, their wedding gift spend would "cover their plate." (The Knot)
The bride and groom would also have to provide details to the guests about how much things costs. And that's something I don't think most folks would be willing to divulge.
I'm not a fan.
Gifts are what people want to give you and what they can afford. My gift to you for your nuptials should have nothing to do with how much you want your wedding and reception to be over the top.
But our story doesn't end here. Let's take it one step higher. And messier.
How would you feel if the bride and groom sent you an invite and on it, they asked how much your gift was going to cost?
Because, you would be eating according to the cost of your gift.
According to the RSVP, those who give the happy couple a gift worth up to $250 will be granted the option of roast chicken or swordfish, while those who give gifts valued between $251 and $500 will be granted sliced steak and poached salmon, in addition to the roast chicken or swordfish.
Guests who provide gifts between $501 and $1,000 in value will be able to pick from all the aforementioned meals or choose an exclusive dish designated to their gift level, which includes filet mignon or lobster tails. (Fox10Phoenix)
Between a grand and $2500 for your gift, you can choose from any of the options or opt for the 2 pound lobster.
Also if you ask for the vegetarian or kosher, that means you're automatically in the "you better be bringing us a gift of a grand or more" section.
