- Wedding: December 2014
I have searched and found so many different answers so I wanted to ask the question myself. Time is running out! My wedding is 23 days away today. I will have 80 people. I am having a buffet style dinner. I am using palm leaf (disposable) plates, chinet tumblers an plastic mugs. Here are my numbers:
I have 100 10″ dinner plates, 200 6″ plates (100 for dessert, 100 for appetizers) and 100 bowls even though we aren’t having soup.
I will buy 3 cups per person. These will be used for soda, water and iced tea.
The bar will consist of bottled beer and wine. The venue is providing wine glasses, but do I need glasses for the beer or are just the bottles fine? (I know I drink mine right out of the bottle!)
I plan on having 1 fork for each person for dinner, and one for each person for dessert, plus about 30 extra. Same with spoons. We’re not having soup or ice cream or anythign so I was thinking I could put 1 spoon per person on the place setting (just so that it looks complete) and use the rest for the coffe/tea/hot chocolate. So would that be enough spoons?
I have 100 plastic mugs for coffee/tea/hot chocolate. With 80 people, 15 who are children under 10, is that enough mugs?
I have enough cloth napkins for each person plus a few exra. I was planning on buying some fancy paper ones to use for cocktail hour and dessert (along with the small plates, not instead of them).
