Curious to see how many cupcakes you all ordered and whether they were mini, regular or jumbo sizes. I know there are calculators out there and the one bakery we've talked to mentioned 2.5/person for minis and 1.5 for regular (not interested in jumbo), but I'd like some real counts from people who actually ordered. I also know # of flavors can impact what you order, especially with minis since people may be more inclined to try multiple ones.
Of course FI is a total fat kid with cake/cupcakes and is all well people are going to want 1-2 full size plus a bunch of minis etc and I said well YOU might do that but I wouldn't think the majority of attendees are going to eat that many - especially since we are having a full dinner before hand. We were looking at doing a mix of mini and regular, partly in a "know your crowd" type of thing but the estimate from the bakery seemed really high for quantity.
I definitely plan on getting some to-go containers for people and am not opposed to bringing leftovers home with us or family/wedding party but I also don't want to over-order too much and feel wasteful.
