Any ideas for a venue in Northern New Jersey that is relatively inexpensive to host a bridal shower? There are 5 bridesmaids, we're all students with low income, probably can only spend $100 dollars each so $500 dollar shower including invitations, favors, and the food. None of us have houses that can accomodate catering.
The bride gave us a list of about 60 people to invite, and it will probably be about 40 coming. We want to have it on a Sunday and maybe do brunch if it's cheaper?
Our options are: have it at an inexpensive restaurant, or rent a hall and have it catered.
If there is any way to get the cost down to $10-12 per guest let me know!
Any ideas welcome! Specifically close to the Livingston/East Hanover/West Orange area.
