Covering the Meal
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Esterly,

In this situation, the parents and grandparents need to discuss the financial arrangements before the event. Rarely is it good manners to discuss who pays in front of the guest of honor, no matter who arranged the dinner or suggested the restaurant. If you feel it is too expensive for you, please say so. Nothing ruins a wonderful celebration like a graduation more than financial discussions at the table.
