You work for your father?

This seems like a bad idea now. It figured prominently on our invites, unfortunately.
I think it's a beautiful idea-I'd do it anyway. I'd simply have the person whose opening it for comments to emphasize that all comments are to be positive, loving, friendly and supportive. That would be easy to word in a way that was encouraging and didn't come across as a "warning" per se-but it would also serve as a "reminder" to people that their negative two cents wasn't being requested...
