Husband's Birthday Party

by Stressed wife
(North Carolina)

My husband is turning 30 in March and I want to throw him a nice/big party. It will be family and close friends. I've been doing research for locations, rentals, catering, etc so as to get the best price. We have 2 children (3 years & 6 months) and money is tight. My question is this: is it tacky (or in poor taste) to ask those who RSVP to send $5 or $10 dollars to help pay for the food (since catering is per person)?

There is no polite way to invite guests and then turn them into hosts.

Draft the guest list, then plan a party you can afford.
