10 year anniversary with my wife and we are inviting friends and family over to a restaurant for dinner. We will be paying for the initial appetizers but I would like the guests to pay for their dinners/drinks, how do I say it tactfully in the invitation so there are no surprises? thx

Thank you for your question. Congratulations on celebrating your 10 year Anniversary! What a fabulous way to spend it, sharing it with good friends.
It is definitely a great idea to pay for the appetizers for your guests.
The wording on your invitation needs to be straightforward and tactful.
Here is an example:
We are celebrating 10 years of marriage! Come and join us for appetizers and dinner at (restaurant, date and time).
We will be covering the cost of the appetizers as a thank you for sharing our night!
I hope you have a wonderful anniversary!! Best wishes!
