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.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
