I am one of five bridal attendants for a family wedding. We are in the planning phases for a bridal shower in mid-August. We're looking for a venue in the Lindenwold/Blackwood/Collingswood/Voorhees, NJ area. It's a small shower for maybe 25-30 people and could end up even less with around 20. We're trying to reign in the costs to include a small, private room in a restaurant around the lunch hours.
The costs seem to be around $60/per person for meal, decorations, room, etc. with a total cost of around $1500 which will be split among the five of us. Is this a reasonable expectation on cost or am I being unreasonable thinking that this is a very high cost?
I live in Florida and won't be able to attend due to work committments, but I'm trying to help as best as I can from far away. Any comments or suggestions would be really appreciated.
