    Your plate and booze, plus a little but for a gift typically. So, say $50ish for dinner, $30ish for drinks, $20ish for buffer. About $100 or more per person. But it varies regionally.

    I’ve never heard the term used that way.  Only Room & Board (not wedding related) or cover your plate for weddings.
