- Wedding: October 2010
$175 per head..but including tip/tax, it came to $225 a head…in NYC…
we are looking at paying $40-50 per person just for heavy apps in Seattle, waterfront, near downtown. Sit down dinner is $65 pp which we cannot afford. Drinks and dessert are separate. The venue fee is $900.
Were paying $46 pp that includes open bar for 5 hours, cake and cocktail hour with 6 different choices for guest. Were in Chicago
mine is $99pp off season but includes 8 hour open bar, champagne toast, all decor (chair covers, centrepieces etc), free jacuzzi suite for us on wedding night, cake, dj, menus, passed hor’d’oevres, 3 course meal with choice of 3 entrees for guests, guestbook, cardbox, midnight buffet…. I think i got an amazing deal and totally stress free as so much is included…
We haven’t finalized which place we’re going with and our menu, but we are looking at around $80-90 per person in Chicago. That’s for apps, buffet dinner, mixers and soda, servers, delivery, equipment, linens (no table clothes) and Chicago’s heafty sales tax. It doesn’t inlcude alchohol (providing our own), cake, tables/chairs and gratuity.
It’s $117 per plate as a base price (including liquor). With the add ons, at cocktail hour and dinner, it’s just about $150. We did go to quite a few venues and they are all around the same price. We didn’t want to go to a catering hall because we don’t want it to have that Weddingy feel. We’ve been to a dozen of weddings these past three years and got that omg, not another wedding feeling each time. I don’t want anyone to feel that way about our wedding.
$200 plus per plate?!?!?! holy shit. Can someone tell me what food that plate consists of? And I may or may not be crashing your wedding….just saying.
My wedding was $225 per person – Our venue was The W Hotel in New York City. In terms of the price, you really are paying for more than the actual food on the plate.
So the $175 included:
Cocktail Hour – 8 passed apps, pasta station, meet & cheese station
Main Course – Soup and Filet or Salmon
Also top-shelf open bar for 6 hours
With tax 8.75% and 22% mandatory gratuity, that added another $50, taking the whole total to $225 a head.
for dinner alone is £50……..($75) then there are drinks and canape”s at £20 $30
$110 per person on the Eastern Shore of Maryland includes:
4 course meal (soup, salad, filet, cheese & fruit)
3 passed apps
all organic and/or locally sourced ingredients
The venue fee is $2800, which includes all rooms in the Inn for 1 night, white glove service, all linens, and all chairs and tables. We will pay for alcohol on consumption, which we expect to be another $2000, based on the online calculators that I have used to estimate how much we will consume. Was it the cheapest of our options? No. Would I change a thing? Heck no. Our venue literally made me lose my breath and their service is impeccable. It is worth every penny to wine and dine our guests.
@SapphireSun: I live in Canada and have only attended open bar weddings. We have many different ethnic backgrounds in Canada, I think that is the major factor. Some backgrounds do not place emphasis on an open bar, irish-Italian and Greek wedding demands an open bar. IDK why its just the way it is in our family/culture.
I live 30 min North East of Atlanta, and it’s costing us $15-$16 per person. That includes the entree, a salad, bread, two sides, and Non alcoholic beverages. but this is for the food only. We got lucky with this, because it is a small, family owned business.
In DC, we are paying $16/pp for two entree buffet with salad and rolls plus a plated vegetarian option. That doesn’t include the linens and such that we are also renting, and we’ll be providing our own alcohol. With rentals, staff, gratuity, and tax it is $35/pp. No appetizers or cocktail hour for us!
