Mom's 70th Birthday Dinner at restaurant w/ friends. Who pays the check?

Right.. it's all in the invitation! I haven't even bought them yet, so it looks like I'll be calling and casually inviting them. That does make a huge difference.
thanks Ali!

The 'invitations' haven't been sent and I will probably end up calling up and casually inviting them. You are right in that written invitatations are usually for the private party, seperate room atmosphere, this is not the case.
thanks for the input

That is sort of my thinking also.. Not that we wouldn't be prepared to pay, but just to sit back and let one person pick up the bill when it is a casual, 'get together' for dinner would be rude, IMO. I know I don't do that.

Who would assume that someone else would pick up the bill just because they got invited out to dinner to celebrate a birthday? Wow how RUDE it that???

Mom's 70th Birthday Dinner at restaurant w/ friends. Who pays the check?

We are celebrating my Mom's 70th Birthday next month at a nice restaurant and we will be inviting 4 other couples which are close friends of my Mom's. We will be sending out invitiations to join us for dinner to help celebrate. There are 4 of us (Mom, my husband, our son and myself) plus 8 other guests.
My question is are my husband and I expected to pick up the check for all 8 guests? We can't exactly afford that!

thanks!
