Is this a good deal or should I continue thunting for a good deal?
Our wedding is going to be in our local park that surrounded by redwood trees. We’re having a reception right after in the same area, and we plan on renting tables, tablecloths and chivari chairs.
Our wedding is going to be small, no more then 50 people. For setup, lenens, food( rotisserie chicken, mixed roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, ceaser salad and rolls) tear down, and delivery tax and gratuity we were quoted $850, that’s with me providing the bamboo disposable plates and cutlery I want. No drinks.
It comes out to $17 a person. Good deal or on the high side. it was the first place we went to and I liked it, but my hubby to be thought it was pricey. I told him I’d ask the bee.

@MissFlowerPot: ummm I think $17 is a great deal. it usually costs more than that pp just to go out to a normal meal at a chain restaurant!
with my per person amount close to $175 I WOULD LOVE YOUR PRICE! 🙂

Depends on your area. We’re paying well over $20pp for a plated lunch. Dinner would be closer to $30.

Great pricing. You’ll want to compare at least 3 caterers, and DEFINITELY do a tasting. Two of ours were pretty horrible (food was cold at the first one), and it’s good to have comparisons.

I had to read your title 3 times to make sure it said $17 and not $170. Definitely a good deal!!!

That is pretty good! Great job! You have to consider that some places can charge $50 to $100 a plate…

Depends on what catering runs in your area. I paid about $23 for mine and it about made my MIL choke. Apparently the $8 cheapier caterer was supposed to be our choice, lol! When you say no drinks, is that just alcohol or does that mean they aren’t providing milk, water, tea, coffee?

I really researched my caterer and payed $17pp as well & thought it was a great deal!
We actually got very similar to what you will have: bruschetta for apps, ceaser salad, two choices of pasta (meat lasagna or chicken alfredo,) garlic bread, water and tea. They also provided the glasses, silverware, and plates.

I live in Central California. It includes setup of the buffet table, two servers in chef coats,white lenens with skirts for the buffet tables only, breakdown, stainless steel chafing dishes, and food.!its a local restraunt that charges around $10 for a plate. I told him I didn’t want to use his china or have any drinks, as I like the idea of glass soda bottles anbland stamped disposable bamboo plates to give it a picnicy feel. He took off $5 per person on the price, but FI thinks it’s too expensive because it’s “way more for the same food we always get”!
I think we’re paying for all the extras(setup; tables, ect) but wanted to check with the bees to be sure
For $22 a head, we would get bone china and lemonade and coffee
Thats price includes tax and gratuities
