Abby's response is already generating some negative comments.

Oh i saw this too! If you can't afford a big party, then do what you can. Maybe cocktails and snacks, and a few close friends.

There's nothing wrong with potlucks.  They are a type of party and perfectly legitimate...as long as the host/hostess is still providing something and up front about what guests can expect.

I agree.

The only times I am annoyed by potlucks is when they are given for a "gifting" occasion (wedding, shower, birthday in which "no gifts" isn't stated, housewarming, etc).  An anniversary party isn't, at least in my circle, a gifting occasion.  So a potluck would be just fine.

shhh its me:

I personally think "no potlucks" also applies to parties where you are the guest of honor.


*if it was someone else suggestion or already established rule for a group I think its fine*
