    I would give about $130 - $140. but I think that's cos I know the rates haha. I think not many guests knows how much the rates per table are at these days.

    Hi PrincessCrystal

    Firstly, I will try to give the amount close to the price per table divide by number of guests ...

    As I know, the couples are having financial difficulties ...

    However, if they are most good friend, I will give slightly more than the above equation... ha ha

    You may like to consider referring to this post for reference ^^

    Not a lot know about the marketrate by hotel per se.

    Per table cost from the banquet pricelist should give you a rough idea how much to give.

    Not everyone goes by the market rates, or by the standard fare provided by the hotels. I know, with absolute certainty, that I'll be incurring a huge loss based on the dinner banquet alone (not considering photography - $6k, bridal gowns/accessories/shoes - $12k, flowers - $800, band - $2k, MUA - $1100, extra decor - $100, flower girl/pageboy outfits - $200, etc), so you'd need to take those into consideration too. My tables are about $1800 each (10 pax), and I definitely don't expect any guest to give $180 each!!

    Quite true, nowaday wedding will not earn(it is not right to plan like this) so plan wisely on what is need and what is want.
    Secondly, even guest trying to find out the price, they tend to forget to *1.177 if it is not nett.
    For example, wedding dinner at Grand Hyatt start from $1288++ for 2011 & 2012, it should be around $1516 for 10 pax.

    i think i would just give based on our friendship...how close we are..rather than market rate..if they are having financial difficulty why would they choose a 5 star hotel?? on the other hand if it's my close friend having dinner at a chinese restaurant I would still give 100...so...just my 5 cents' worth

    I agree with Ver. For 2011, I will not give less than 120 and more for close friends.
