My daughter is making her First Communion this year. We have two kids that already received their First Holy Communion they had a party and cake with all the relatives invited. I think they received thirty dollars maybe a little more. About $5 from each relative.
I would like to take my daughter out for breakfast this year and skip the party. The party cost about $100 and I just don't have the money.
Would I be wrong to not give my daughter a party as I did the older two?

I don't think it's wrong but she may question why her siblings did and not her. How about saving money from your tax return?

You don't need a party. Family should understand anyway, just tell them "Money is tight for us right now so we are celebrating quietly, we would love for everyone to come to the church and we are going out to breakfast afterwards if anyone wants to come we would love the company."

We're in the same situation this year along with two graduations. DD from college and OS from paramedics school. Also I'm having a hip replacement. So money is very short. very very short. For all the kids I wouldn't dream of not having some sort of get together for the family.I'm making all the cakes and having a weenie roast with chips and kool aid. If they want Adult beverages or pop they will have to bring it themselves. Also knowing my BIL and others someone will bring burgers and a few side dishes. It's not fair to the younger one to not do what was done for the others. They will remember it. Just explain that things are tight so the food won't be as much.
