I wanted to ask you bee’s before i asked my Caterer…
So we have a few children coming to our wedding, all of which are 5 and under. Would you count all in the headcount for dinner or two per 1 count? Most children eat significantely less.
We are doing buffet style, and there are always people that eat less or more of different items…

@Nikkimcq: I counted the two five year olds at our wedding as “full” people, and didn’t count any younger than that (the next oldest were 2-3). Kids that young usually just eat a little of their parents’ plates or eat snack the parents bring…

Do you have an option for a children’s meal or anything? We only had one small child, and our venue put together a special meal for him (the meal was also cheaper in cost).

@lolot: Really good idea!! This is what we will do. There wont be many kids, and not many older than 5! this will work perfect.
@Gemstone: No, there is no option for a kids meal. Just our buffet options.
Thanks you both!

Our venue offers a kids meal so I’m getting the kids meal for children 5-12ish, then not counting children 4 and under.

@Nikkimcq: Our venue offered the buffet at half price for children. They just asked that we advise the number of children 12 and under seperately. I would check and see what options they have for children and toddlers (which were free for us).

We’re doing a buffet as well, but our venue has kids meals available for kids under 12 for MUCH less than a regular per person price. You should definitely check with your venue.

We went by our caterers policy: 2-8 was half price and under 2 was free.

@Nikkimcq: Being a mother of 3, 13 and under, I would not count my youngest two (who are 10 and 8) as full adults. I also would not count 5 under at all.
But it should depend on your caterer too.
