I have been invited to several parties lately, birthday, baby shower, bridal shower etc... I have noticed that on most of them the host asks you to BYOB and bring a side dish or dessert and please let them know what you will bring! One of the Birthday parties wanted us to bring our own hamburger meat to barbeque! Now I know times are tough, and Byob has never bothered me, but I kind of think if you have a party for yourself you should at least make the food??? My husband and I have 2 parties a year and we blow it out, provide everything! What do you think?

I heard of BYOB and maybe asked to bring dessert but no biggie. IMO I think it's rude to ask people to bring their own food to be cooked when they are hosting a party.

I think with the economy now, we need to re-think how we view parties and such. Now, if the person throwing the party has the cash to drop for feeding lots of people, then there is no reason to ask for food. But...rising prices/lack of work have forced a lot of people to cut back. If the only way to have a celebration is to ask for guests to bring a dish or meat to cook, I personally would have no problem.
