I’m getting quotes from caterers for the cocktail hour and reception and the totals are coming in at $10K give or take for 100 people. This is NOT including alcohol, which we’ll likely be providing ourselves. I’m in the DC area… are there other brides in this area (or near a major city) that can tell me if this is typical?

$100 per person sounds typical for this area, depending on what you are getting for that quote. Ours is $110 per person for 3 passed apps and a 4 course plated dinner. That also includes the service fee and taxes. Our venue fee was an additional $2700 for full rental of the Inn for 24 hours, all linens, all china, and all chairs.

@lovekiss: Thanks! I guess I thought providing our own alcohol would cut it down more…
