    @MissFlowerPot:  ummm I think $17 is a great deal. it usually costs more than that pp just to go out to a normal meal at a chain restaurant!


    with my per person amount close to $175 I WOULD LOVE YOUR PRICE! 🙂

    Depends on your area.  We’re paying well over $20pp for a plated lunch.  Dinner would be closer to $30.

    Great pricing. You’ll want to compare at least 3 caterers, and DEFINITELY do a tasting. Two of ours were pretty horrible (food was cold at the first one), and it’s good to have comparisons.

    I had to read your title 3 times to make sure it said $17 and not $170. Definitely a good deal!!!

    That is pretty good! Great job! You have to consider that some places can charge $50 to $100 a plate…

    Depends on what catering runs in your area. I paid about $23 for mine and it about made my Mother-In-Law choke. Apparently the $8 cheapier caterer was supposed to be our choice, lol! When you say no drinks, is that just alcohol or does that mean they aren’t providing milk, water, tea, coffee?

    I really researched my caterer and payed $17pp as well & thought it was a great deal!

    We actually got very similar to what you will have: bruschetta for apps, ceaser salad, two choices of pasta (meat lasagna or chicken alfredo,) garlic bread, water and tea. They also provided the glasses, silverware, and plates.
