How to Ask Guests to Pay
Hi, my 30th Birthday is coming up & I plan on renting a limo & taking it to a club & inviting 9 friends. The limo costs $435 though & I was wondering if it is polite to ask my friends to contribute whatever they can afford to the cost of the limo instead of gifts. How would I word this on the invitation? Lauren, Location withheld
Great idea for a 30th Birthday! In your email invitation all you need is one subtle line that goes something like this:
In lieu of a gift, you are welcome to pitch in any amount toward the cost of the limo and driver for the evening. Thank you!
Lauren, Happy Birthday and have a safe night clubbing with your friends. ~Didi
