I am looking for people who have recently made a bris in Baltimore and can give me approximate costs. How did you estimate how many people show up? Who did you use and what were the total costs?

Sorry don't know costs offhand but in terms of who will show up I guess that depends on your crowd.
For me it was basically family by women- mom, sisters /sisters in law/ cousins etc.. a few friends..
For my husband in addition to family a few rabbanim he invited plus some friends..

If you are doing milchig- bagels/ cheese/ lox etc.. You don't need an exact count but try to get approx number and some ppl will wrap up bagel for work etc.. if you have some leftovers u can freeze some of it or use within the next few days..

In terms of costs it also depends if you will be using a shul hall- and what they charge for that or doing s/t like knish shop party room etc.. Once you have a # of how many ppl you think it will be u can call up a few places- milk & honey bistro/ golbergs etc.. and get a quote.

It's been a few years since we made a bris, but Goldberg's has packages for $10 and $15 per person, with a 25 person minimum. You can also have them provide coffee, pastries, fruit platters, etc. depending on how fancy you want to make it and how much you want to spend. They will also deliver, which is really helpful.

In terms of the number of people to expect it will depend on the day of the week and time of the bris. Definitely more people would come on a Sunday morning at 9 a.m. then a weekday after a 7:00 a.m. Shacharis, when people need to get their kids off to school and get to work. If it's a weekday bris, I would only expect close family and very close friends to come on the women's side. Men may have more since technically anyone in the minyan could stay if the bris is in shul.
