Are you asking them to cover your shower? IF they want to do it, they should be doing it on their own and picking their budget not you. OR they can pick a budget and then you pick a venue.

I had 6 bridesmaids. My bridal shower was around $45-50 person (but I’m in the NJ/NYC area). THey each put in $170. My mom and grandmother put in the rest. I had 40 guests.

ETA: My bridesmaids and mom did everything. Once they told her how much they wanted to spend I picked a venue. They handled everything else. I told them I didnt even want/need a shower but they insisted.

@asb983:  You should let them plan – that way they will pick something that is in their budget and you don’t have to get involved in the money part of it.

Well…..like I said…I had 6 girls and they organized it with my mom. My girls lived all over and were not in contact with each other prior to wedding planning. I still say to let one of them (or your mom) get a group email going or something and let them figure it out rather than you dictating to them what you want them to spend.

ETA: My girls lived in 3 different states. WIth today’s technology they dont need to be close physically in order to coordinate and plan something. That is what email/phone/facebook/skype/etc is for…
