I need some advice...
I am in my friend's wedding in May (she is also in mine) and she and her FI are throwing a Jack & Jill party in February. I am not sure if everyone is familiar with what the is but here is a quick summary:
The bride and groom throw a laid back party (usually at a rental hall or banquet room) with grill foods, snacks, nothing fancy. There are booze and raffle prices. The catch? Each person/couple has to pay for a ticket to attend. Supposed to help the couple out, and some think of it as a co-ed shower.
Personally, I think these are tacky and my FH and I are not having one. Just doing the traditional female-only shower. But to each his own, and my friend is doing one, as well as a shower.
My question is - does anyone know if you are part of the BP, are you expected to pay for a ticket? Or since we are part of the BP is it expected that we are to get in free and join in the festivities? I'd rather not ask her or her sister also in the wedding...I asked our mutual best friend who is in the BP but in Washington state so she won't be attending, and she doesn't know the answer. And not that I mind paying (I guess) but I just am not sure....my friend/bride hasn't said anything about that.
I hope someone can shed some light!!
