$40 a head seems pretty steep for catering… Where are you located?

I went to a wedding that did that and it was one of the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding.  They just had a buffet line for the restaurant catering with that really nice disposable plates and silverware that look like china.  It was a lunch reception though

@Daenaria727:  we did and got so many compliments! through the restaurant we rented plates, and silverware. They got their wholesale rental price so way inexpensive 🙂

@Daenaria727:  We are doing restaurant catering -Indian buffet – and it’s going to be around what your budget is, and that includes alcohol, service and plates/cups etc. We are renting plates cups etc for about $700 total. However, we are only having 65 guests. But I would still suggest a restaurant over a wedding caterer, all the caterers we talked to quoted us at least $50 pp, not including service. I would definitely suggest looking at non-traditional restaurants like Indian, Thai, Chinese. We chose the most expensive catering package for our buffet and it was $27 pp – and it is probaby too much food to be honest. The other thing you could do is BBQ – you can get away with like $10-$15 pp with that. Just be sure to factor in tax, and ask about how much service is. As far as paper plates I know what you mean because we considered that but I just couldn’t go through with it. If it were an afternoon wedding maybe. Hope this helped!

I 100% agree with secretbee33. Go non-traditional cuisine.

The food will be delicious and your reception will be unique.
