I’m in St. Louis, MO.

$30.50 pp for buffet (2 main, 3 sides, salad), the wedding cake, open bar, and an extra half hour of reception time.

Places are very reasonable here!  Unless you want a super fancy location…We have some really beautiful banquet halls though!  All $20-35 pp including alcohol.

We’re spending about $80 pp for 180 guests, Saturday wedding, in downtown Grand Rapids, MI which covers venue, apps, dinner, cupcake dessert, and alcohol.

You should add a poll!! We paid around $150 per head at a golf course. It included 5 hr premium open bar, upgraded wine, appetizers at cocktail, 5 course meal, late night buffet and chocolate fountain. We had 89 guests.

Ours will be $10 per person for sandwiches, pasta salad, fruit, veggies, lemonade, and coffee. We will be supplementing with other sides and desserts.
