I’m paying $95 a person. But during my research I found some places that were lower. The Castle in Delran, NJ. The Kove in Edgewater. There was Shannon’s County House, and The Palace. I was leaning towards The Palace until we upped the ante and moved our whole budget a bit higher. You could check out those places though!

Gourmet Italian Cuisine in Galloway. (Atlantic County) Near the SeaView Marriot where the LGPA is held? Lori is the Banquet manager there and she does an AMAZING job. I couldn’t have my reception there because of the FH # of guests but it holds about 60-65 comfortably with a dance floor, the food is amazing and you can’t beat it. Good Luck!

We payed $56 per person including 5 hours open bar (brand name), 2 plated hor derves, and 3 hand passed hor derves, 3 menu options(prime rib, horseradish crusted salmon and grilled chicken with ratatouille), plus vegetarian upon request, wedding coordinator, chair covers, room set up and take down, cake cutting, asti champagne toast, coffee and biscotti table.
I feel we were incredibly lucky to get what we got for our price. It was actually the cheapest place we looked at, and it came with the most, and best stuff. It took a lot of shopping around to find this amazing deal! Primarily other places around here were in the range of $60 – $120 per person.

That is how much I am paying but I live in a small town. Not a lot of venue options.

I am having my reception in manahawkin at the holiday inn. we have top shelf open bar – 5 hours. Cocktail hour includes: three carving stations, two pasta stations, 9 passed hor’derves, cheese and fruit displays, seafood raw bar, sausage and peppers and pierogies. Three choice entree sit down dinner, salad course, soup, sherbert. Italian pastries and our cake is included, all for 85 a person. Which, right by LBI is a STEAL of a price. We are able to have everyone we wanted to invite, plus we get our bridal suite for free for two nights. The venue is very pretty and does not feel like a typical hotel when you walk in. I could not be happier!!!

I paid $50/plate for food, and paid for the bar by consumption which came to about an additional $40/head.

The cheapest price is have seen that INCLUDES alcohol is $70 per person, which I consider a great price.
I am not planiing to do a hosted bar and I expect to pay around $60 per person.

We are paying $56 with beer and wine bar only….Would have been $65 if we had complete open bar.

op – Did you find anywhere? I haven’t seen anywhere that inexpensive around here! We’re paying $140 a head for ours, but it includes open bar, centerpieces, and the cake.

Ours is $22.95 per person. It includes linens, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages. We have to buy our own liquor or champagne if we want it. We tried to go as inexpensive as possible because we did not want to cut any more family from the list. Otherwise I think it was originally going to be $40 at the venue I liked.

$24.85/person, not including rentals (all dishes/glassware/silverware), cake, or open bar. That price is cocktail hour and reception food only.
