Shes hoping to sell 200 tickets?! thats a lot…just food for thought, i always find it rude to invite people to pre wedding events and not the actual wedding itself… So i hope all 200 of these people are invited to the wedding too!

 

I think $20 for a couple is fine…

 

What about selling drinks?  Even if its a toonie bar, you could likely still make money depending what you sell. or even up the price if you need to

So you’re probably not going to get very much advice on these boards for buck and does because they are such a regional thing. They are seen as very tacky anywhere else (I personally dont like them either but I still like to support people I know)

But since I’m from ontario I will bite. We are not having one but a lot of our friends have. 200 tickets is not alot some of my friends have sold close to 1000 tickets. People will buy tickets to support even if they cant go. I would suggest doing the deal for two tickets I personally like it. 

If the tickets have a part that can be torn off it’s a good idea to have people that buy tickets and cant make it to the event fill out that part and have the person that sold them the ticket put it in the door prize draw. That way even though they cant make it they still have a chance to win a prize and dont feel like they completely wasted their money.

Also Jell-o shots are always a hit. They are cheap to make and you can sell them for like $2 each

I get that this is a regional thing… but yeah $20 is pretty expensive for a lame party, that you also have to buy drinks at and pay to sing karaoke.

I went to so many when I used to live in Ontario. Pinterest probably has the best ideas! 
Also a jar with the brides face and one with the grooms and whichever one had more $ in it at the need of the night they get a pie in the face (whipped cream in a pie plate) 

Instead of a silent auction most I went to did raffle tickets then you can make games around winning more raffles tickets.
