@jwdesiree: We saw about $950 total after they purchased everything through their restaurant and we have a guest list of 108 people. We are going to costco to buy the plates/utensils/ and cups though. We are also buying our own alcohol for the reception and providing home made ice teas and lemonade. The other things that we are providing are:a place for him to cook on site(so he won’t have to deliver pre-cooked food) and a seasonal menu for him to work with.

Our friend was our caterer! He just started his own catering business, we were his 2nd wedding.. Unfortunately, they got behind during the day of, and could’t enjoy the ceremony, or the reception (although they did tell me that they stopped, and let their kitchen staff handle it during the ceremony so they could hear us do our vows, and they danced with us during the reception)

It really depends on where you are, what type of food you are having, if it’s in season or not and how many types and how much you will have.

We went through a friend who messed everything up, changed the *entire* menue than quoted almost double the original amount, on top of all this she stirred up a lot of drama close to the wedding. We had to cut her 2 months before the wedding. Luckily for us my ILs offered to do the catering and with their awesome “I can do anything”ness and all of their friends we were able to have it done super cheap and have loads of leftovers and we spent under 500 and had enough food for 100 and then lots of left overs. They REALLY helped a ton with the catering but quite a bit probably came out of their pocket unfortunately, long story.
