Don’t tell them it’s for a wedding. Get quotes for a family reunion, a convention, etc.

I would say keep researching…. There are hotels that have great deals and wont be 200.00 per plate.

Wow, 300 guests is a lot! We got SOO many quotes from caterers and after the initial quote, we would ask them what they could do to get in our budget. We are having stations instead of a plated meal, and we are also providing our own alcohol. The alcohol alone is saving us a few thousand.

A good caterer will come up with creative ideas to stay within your budget. Just keep looking 🙂

I’m paying about 100/plate but that includes alcohol, venue and food. My suggestion is find a place that does everything in one! It’s def cheaper. Our place also has a sound system so we saved on the DJ bill! Good luck!

Have you posted on the local board? I’m willing to bet if you make a Florida-specific post for affordable reception venues, Florida bees will be able to make suggestions.

We are having a $100 per head reception here in NYC – if I can do it here, you’ll certainly be able to find something near you.
