Strange one this, etiquette wise.
Mate is getting sprung a surprise party for a significant year by his OH. She's surreptitiously finding out who can and can't make it.
I'd said yes- he's a great lad- and she seemed pleased.
However, a formal invite has arrived to the do, and there within is a little note, asking me to contribute a sum of money (north of £10) for the buffet.
I'm assuming all other guests have also been asked to do this.
I don't really mind, but a)they're flush as b)have no kids and c)are both on great incomes. Really great....
Is this odd, or is just me? I'd planned on getting him some kind of pressie too.
