- Wedding: August 2010
We have a budget of around $30/person for food, and we’re finding that it doesn’t get us very far with the caterers in the area we’re getting married. (Lake Tahoe.) We found a caterer who has somewhat reasonable prices, but each dinner option is priced individually at around $9/item. So, if we want to offer 2 options for guests, it’s $18/person, and if we want to offer 3 options, it’s $27. You don’t get any type of price break for adding additional items. With a budget of $30, I’m really thinking that we can only afford to offer two options.
If you could only have two entree options, what would you choose? The caterer suggested ravioli and chicken. He was actually going to make two types of ravioli – meat and cheese – at no additional cost. Maybe I’m being spoiled, but ravioli and chicken just doesn’t sound like a very exciting menu at all. 🙁
