Crowdfunding Etiquette: A New Thing

Tacky or tasteful?

Experts have now set rules for crowdfunding things you want but don’t want to pay for yourself, like your over-the-top wedding.

It’s called “crowdfunding etiquette.”

Included in the rules are:

  • tell donors what their money is to be used for;
  • don’t make them pay processing fees;
  • have a gift registry also for those squeamish about giving cold cash; and
  • send the honeymoon donors a nice postcard telling them what a wonderful time you had on their dime.

If you can afford everything but would just prefer to have your friends pay your way, always refuse to comment to nosey reporters.
