I still think 50 ppl is a lot to host. If you were to go to a restaurant and rent a private room for 50 guests at $70 per head comes out to about 3,500….Are you willing to spend that for an hour or 2 of dinner?

Coco Brown Walker :  I’m sure OP can checkout restaurants that don’t charge that much in her area per person. Or whatever fits her budget. $70 sounds quite a bit. I live in Southern California which is on the higher price end and I’ve looked around and you can find many restaurants that charge around $35 or so per person so it’s doable. There are no additional room rental fee but there is a service charge & sales tax.

I think the private ceremony followed by party/reception is a great route and perfectly acceptable!

Perhaps….I looked into this myself and found that the prefix meals at one of the steakhouses I like to be about in the $70 per person…Upon further research, however, I did find another restaurant that is quite nice in my area for $40 per person. So, I apologize for the misinformation….
