Well you wont get out of tax and gratuity.

I am having mine catered by my venue, and its price per peson plus gratuity. No service charge, but i can see that if they are going on location.

@whitefuzzy:  I ran across fees like that too.  I even saw a 4th at times – resort tax!

I don’t think those fees are that unreasonable… We have 13% tax in our province, and our caterer has 15% service charge + a $20/hr bartender fee. We also have a 5% fee on top of that because of our venue choice. In our case these fees work out to be about 1/4 of the overall cost.
