I have never been one to want a buffett style dinner, but have started to consider it lately due to the fact it tends to be slightly cheaper and has more options (good for a mix of guests like vegitarian, can't eat pork, etc). However, every time I see pricing for food I am a bit confused.The plating option outright says "$$$ PER PERSON" while the buffet option says (for example this comes exactly from my receptions catering manager)"Pick three salads, Two Accompinants, Two Entrees, and Wedding Cake for Dessert" for $106. The reason I am confused is because it doesn't tell me how far that will go. How many buffet set ups will I need for a wedding that is at around 100 guests?
I guess I just need clarification on what the price I am seeing for the buffett style dinner indicates and how much food I will need (in buffett style) for a reception of 100 guests?
Thanks for any tips and opinions on this!
