Customer Question

Oh hi. I just want to know if it would be appropriate to send out a card announcing that my parents want to travel for their 50th Wedding anniversary. They insist that they do not want us to plan a party or a reception. I am sure money can help with their travel expenses. I am not sure if it is appropriate??
JA: The Wedding Planner will know what to do. Is there anything else the Wedding Planner should be aware of?
Customer: none that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Wedding Planner about your situation and then connect you two.

Congratulations first to your parents on their 50th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful idea that they wish to travel and see the world. In terms of your question, asking for money upfront without any party or reception could be seen as a bit of a problem in terms of etiquette. Friends and family that would receive a note asking for money without a reception could rub people the wrong way.What I might recommend is to have a quiet and small gathering of friends and not make a big fuss about it to your parents. I would feel your parents would enjoy having something held for them that is low key even if they say they do not want something such as this. With the invite to the reception you can then state the idea of travel and money would be a nice thing to give instead of travel.If you still feel that no party is going to be held, then asking for money to travel will be of bad etiquette. Best to see if a small party with good friends at a restaurant for example could be done as this would be a good way to have money given for travel.
