Any Mathematicians out there??!!!..Please Help!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok..so there's a reason why I hate Math....I suck!..lol Anyway, I'm trying to book a hall for my BFF's Bridal Shower. I hate to have to limit her to a total of 25 people. But I don't think I could afford anymore. I did the math but I think I did it wrong. I'm the worst at this someone please help me. I would love to do 40 people but I think that would be too much. Hmmmmm.....Again, someone please help me figure this out.




The Restaurant states on it's website the following along with the menu,



Banquet Luch Package


Served from 11 am to 3 pm


Package Includes
Home made bread, unlimited soft drinks, coffee and tea.

$23.75 Per Person
Please add 7% tax and 20% gratuity



For 25 people....???

For 35 People..???

Ok, working in the restaurant business from time to time may have helped me with this :o)  You have to multiply the tax and gratuity seperately because you cannot tax gratuity and you can't get gratuity from tax (if that makes ANY sense!?!)  Hope this helps!?  These are the numbers I came up with:


25 people -- $593.75 + 41.56 (tax) + 118.75 (gratuity) = $754.06


35 people -- 831.25 + 58.19 (tax) + 166.25 (gratuity) = $1055.69


I think it is AMAZING of you to host something like this and I think she will appreciate and understand whatever you can do!

I am not the best at math either but the total for 40 people is looking to be around $1200.


Do you have to do it at a hall?  My bridesmaids are throwing mine at one of their houses and I know it will be much cheaper than that. 


I have also thrown two bridal showers, both in my parents backyard and they turned out great plus it was more intimate.


Just a thought...  :)

I definitely agree!  The idea of someones house or even a church hall would save you a bundle, and you could use all of the saved money on a nice cake and great food/desserts of your own choice!?

Well yes i hate that we have to book a hall. Unfortunetly, all bridesmaids including myself have small tiny places. so it looks like this has to be the way to go. But thank you guys so much!!! really.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
