    Etiquette:

    It is more appropriate to organize a fun event to pay for a wedding than to directly ask family and friends for money, unless the event is raising money for one specific aspect of the event. For example, asking guests not to bring gifts but placing a jar at the Jack and Jill party for donations to the couple’s honeymoon fund is okay. Asking guests to come to the party with extra bottles for the reception so that the couple can provide an open bar might also work. Asking for cash to pay for the wedding ringsis not appropriate – these items should be paid for by the wedding couple or their families. Likewise, raising money for anything considered overly extravagant (an ice sculpture, release of doves, etc) would be in poor judgment – it’s important to remember that attending a wedding can already be quite expensive: guests often have to pay for travel expenses, lodging, appropriate attire, the wedding gift, etc.

     

     

    Jack and Jill Fundraiser

    More recently, the Jack and Jill party has been used as an event to raise money for the couple’s wedding expenses. Today many couples pay for their own weddings rather than receiving a budget from the bride’s parents. The maid of honor and best man (or some other family/friend) organizes the event and all proceeds go towards the wedding (or honeymoon) budget. In some cases, the bride and groom organize the event themselves.

    Examples: A casino night, a sports tournament (golf, foozball), or a poker tournament. Other options: guests pay a flat fee for drink tickets and a chance to win door prizes at a bar or organizers put a package together for an outing (refreshments, chartered bus, tickets to a concert or game) and build in a profit margin. Popular games for fundraisers are: casino-style games (with play money and prizes for the biggest winners), 50-50 draws, and coin tosses. Wine lotteries can also raise a lot of money (if friends and family are all wine drinkers).

      I'm not sure how it works exactly for a jack and Jill. Here in Manitoba we have wedding socials in which case tickets sell for $10

      Thanks.....I think $10 is about right too! We are trying to raise money to pay for an exclusive Catamaran rental for our group...Thinking of having a Grease theme with me and FI being Sandy and Danny and asking everyone to dress up as the T-Birds and Pink Ladies. This is the invitation that me and my MOA came up with (I'll replace the picture with one that me and FI are dressed up)

        I have never heard of this before, This seems like a great way to offset the cost of a group excursion.

          Given that most of our guests live in the same town and the remaining will be staying at our cottage resort, we have decided to rent a bus and charge people $5 for a safe ride home.  The bus can hold upto 48 people and will do 2 pick ups for $300.  I created these tickets to sell

          $10 sounds about right - I like the idea of an extra $2 for at-the-door tix
