    Our plate per person is $80 for JUSt dinner.  This does not included alcohol/drinks, dessert or cocktail hour.  That was all extra.

    For dinner alone – $45 in Santa Barbara, CA.  Adding non-alcoholic drink service & appetizers – probably around $60.

    *sigh* I was hoping for something like that.  I was lucky enough to find a 35-40 per plate venue for just dinner (not including drinks, apps, taxes).  Mostly I saw 75-100, and many were 100+… I just crossed that right off the list.  And those prices were just for the dinner plate.

    $87 in upstate NY. Includes cocktail hour, open bar, app, salad, main course, dessert (but not cake). Plus they threw in centerpieces, linens and chair covers.

    This is a ridiculous steal as we were planning on paying more like $95-$100 pp for all of the above.

    We had a sit down dinner and everyone got the same thing. We had a salad and then a sea bass and steak with veggies and potatoes. It was $50 a plate but that did not include alcohol.

    I’m in Florida. We paid $35 which included apps and a buffet. It’s pretty low for around here.

    Yea, I’m from Milwaukee, and I am paying right around $20 per person, and that includes 2 main dishes, sides, salads, desert (not cake) but it is buffet style. That price also includes beer and soda.

    I want to get married in the midwest. NYC prices are from $90 (low end) to … the stratosphere. That’s why I am going down to TX, not that it’s much cheaper actually when I crunched the numbers.
