You will find that the number will vary widely by regions and types of receptions.  Here in the midwest I spent about $20 pp and I DIYed most everything except the food.

@sandy16: I’m having my wedding/reception in New Orleans. I haven’t booked anything yet, but most there charge somewhere around $50 or $60 per person for a sit-down dinner. I haven’t checked into other types of receptions.

We are paying $285 per person at a five-star hotel in LA. LA and NYC prices are pretty similar, but we are near the high end (though there are definitely venues in LA that were way out of our budget).

We’re paying somewhere $200-$300pp. (we have a combo of american and russian catering so can’t say exactly) We’re getting married in a fairly high end los angeles venue, with an OBSCENE amount of food (no seriously, obscene…), and 6hr open bar, all premium, top shelf alcohol.
