oilfieldhoney:  This sounds on the verge of being very tacky. I need more information as to how exactly you can get away with only paying 10$/per person. Logic would say they would have a small menu in which to choose from that the restaurant would provide. I’m also having wedding at restaurant and that’s what is normally done.

Well, you can tell them that it’s a cash bar and don’t offer the choice to order off the menu.

oilfieldhoney:  What items are available for $10 per person? Is it actually possible for someone to order a complete meal at that price?

I really don’t know if I would call it a reception if they are going to be paying for their meals. $10 really is like an appitizer and maybe a drink. Maybe word it like,a champagne toast will be provided at xyz resturant? Or Please join us for a champagne toast at xyz resturant.

Are you also paying the tax and tip on top of the $10 per person, or just $10 per person, with each guest being responsible for paying his or her own tax and tip as well?

Is it Chili’s? You can get a lot of food at Chili’s for $10 pp. An appetizer to share and an entrée per person. 😉

Darn, why can’t you edit your responses anymore. 

Anyway, don’t forget to add at least 20% tip.

I would think that the way to do it would be to have a menu with what you’re serving at the table but don’t have the main menu there. People won’t try and order extra stuff if they don’t know it’s available.
