Doesn’t your caterer have some ideas for you? I’d personally have no idea how to figure that out myself and have relied on those who do it for a living to guide me. I trusted that we wouldn’t run out of food, and we didn’t…not even close. We had stations as well.

That needs to be discussed with your caterer since they are the professionals who figure this out everyday. Order for 100% of your guests and assume that you will have 100% attendance as well. It is better to have too much than to run out because you didn’t estimate correctly.

If you have that many selections, you really don’t need any cocktail hour since guests will not have room for everything you are offering. Especially since you mentioned from your own experience at a similar setup that you were not able to visit every station you wanted to.
