Bad manners to go to a dinner with casual aquaintances when you have a cold?

It's 3pm now. Going to an event, a dinner, that starts at 6pm hopefully, but I have a cold. Might it turn out that I am unwelcome at the event if I go? Thing is, I know exactly who gave me the cold and don't really thank them for it. Is it bad etiquette to go to something like this if you have a cold? They are not friends or anything that I would otherwise be exposed to.

I'm a bit wary of asking this on the internet, of course, because the knee-jerk "internet answer" is whatever people believe is best for them, which is no. I'm looking for real world experience. I.e. how do you feel if someone shows up with a cold in this context?
