It says '6.30 for 7' on the invite.

Any ideas? dh says £50 in vouchers... I'm not sure...
Any advice much appreciated, haven't been to just a reception in a while

I'd do£50 for a day invite... I'd go lower.

£20 if only going to evening do, £50 if the whole day

I always do about £20. £50 is LOADS!

£10 to £20 tops.
