- Wedding: May 2014
A friend of ours got married in the detroit area about 7 years ago. Somehow they had alcohol and dinner and everything for about 250 people for 20k total. I was shocked and then they told me that they spent approximately 40/person on food AND alcohol.
I told them my price per person whichis around 200 with enhancements and top shelf liquor included. He was telling me that was absolutely insane and that he would find me a place with alcohol included in Philadelphia for under 50.
He gave up after he found some barns that were for rent for like 1000 and said we could find any catering company to come in and do that for really cheap (he of course got married in the detroit masonic temple and got a registered catering company for dirt cheap, because hey, detroit!).
Now I feel SO over the top. I readily admit I could get a place for 100/person, but under 50? I don’t know.
The wedding itself doesn’t bother me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Also it’s well within my budget since my father is generously paying for the vast majority and many of the requests/enhancements are his requests. i just hate being wasteful.
