I think 2-3 “pieces” per person would be a good estimate!

I have the same problem too!  I don’t want a traditional wedding cake and I would love to have several cakes in different flavors.  We’re also having a dessert bar with bags for people to bring home as favors but we’re not sure how much cake or desserts to order.  

Any advice would be appreciated!  We’re expecting about 250 guests, so it’s hard to determine how much of each item to buy.

I am wondering the same thing too. I think we will probably end up with around 8 items per person. This will be instead of cake and favours, so people will likely eat a few on the day, and can take a box home with as many as they can fit.

Our wedding will only be around 40 people though, so overcatering is not nearly as big a disaster as it would be overcatering for 300 or so people! It will just mean we will have plenty to eat for a few days. So I guess this doesn’ really help you at all!

For a big wedding like yours I would say 3 per person is a good estimate. That is a LOT of food! Good luck!
