Weddings are always tough on family and friends. We spend waaay to much money on 'em.

Circumstances are different. If funds are tight and friends are trustworthy and willings, I see no problem asking a friend to assist with the reception. Ideally the request would come sometime before the start of the reception.

Last year my oldest got married. I gave her a budget and told her anything left over was hers. She went cheap! She asked me to manage the music. I put together 3 hrs of love songs on an Ipod. I used the remote to switch to special songs at certain times. She also asked me to manage the food. I hired a caterer. I've got my limits.
