How many cupcakes?

I am doing cupcakes in leiu of cake, and I'm doing them myself.  How many cupcakes should I have for 150 people?  We're not having a groom's cake (FI hates cake), but instead probably pecan pie or banana pudding.

    Are they normally sized cupcakes or large ones?

    For regular sized cupcakes, I would probably get 200 in case some people want seconds.  For large ones, I would get 150.

    we had a part for around 50 and I made 100 three flaviors
    I thought we would have alot left over but there where maybe 10 left.

    It's better to have too much than not enough. However you will need enough pie to go around for everyone since not everybody likes cake. That said, 1 piece of pie per person and 1 cupcake per person is what you need.

    Are you doing more than one flavor? If so, I would add even more. Some people like to have one of each flavor.

    We have approximately 50 guests and are ordering 100 regular sized cupcakes.  Hope that helps.

    My baker told me the same general rule for cupcakes as cake= 1.5 per person. so for 150 ppl you would want to do somewhere close to 200-225, maybe on the low end since you will have pie and extra stuff
