Yes – it is very rude to ask guests of a bridal shower to pay their own tab, even if it’s at a restaurant.  You are inviting them to an event, and as host, you are obligated to cover their tab.  It’s understandable (but still iffy, to me) to not cover alcohol, but food and non-alcoholic beverages absolutely should be covered by the host.

Do you, or any of your friends, have access to a community center in an apartment complex?  You and the BMs could share cooking duties and have it there.  Otherwise, you might be stuck having to cover the restaurant costs.

@mjwyatt84:  I’d definitely take her up on the offer of using her house! It seems like your money will go a lot further without having to pay for restaurant meals. And a tea party theme could be pulled off beautifully – make finger sandwiches and little savory tarts, a few different kinds of tea or iced tea and lemonade, warm scones with clotted cream and preserves and petit fours or cupcakes for dessert. Look at thrift stores for pretty serving dishes, china plates and teacups – mismatched are fine!
