Bridal Shower[Raleigh,Cary]

I am throwing a bridal shower and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of an amazing restaurant in the Raleigh or Cary areas that could accommodate a party of about 40-50 people. Any suggestions would be great and are welcome. Thanks!

  1. How much are you willing to spend?

    And what type of food? Will you need to accomodate vegetarians, etc.?

      That is a good this point I do not think we have decided on a budget but we do not want to spend more than 15-30ish dollars a person maybe? And that maybe high! As far as what type of food we are looking for, yes vegetarians would need to be accomodated due to many who are kosher or have some allergies. We like all types of food and all types of restaurants. Thanks!

    2. After watching several people try to do this and fail, my suggestions are:

      Pick your favorite caterer and try to schedule the Raleigh Women's Club on Glenwood.


      Throw a picnic at Pullen Park - sundresses, white gloves, and hats.


      Book The Mint.

        "Sisters" does the catering for the Women's Club - which is a fine option.

      2. I used to live in Raleigh, I loved Barbara Boney Catering.

        I also used to work at Caffe Luna, downtown Raleigh, he would do a buffet and beer and wine included for $40 a head. That was the bargain for a reception, might be a bit much for a shower..

          1. I have been to several weddings and showers at the Fearrington House in Pitsboro. Beautiful outdoor garden setting.
