Hello! Curious if anyone has experience getting catering quotes for receptions. We're looking at a Northwest FL wedding location (Fort Walton / Destin area) and are currently getting quotes of $150+ Per Person for food alone. I just got a recent catering quote for $50-$75 PP but that still seems a bit high compared to other people I've heard only paying $20-$40 PP for wedding food - but that was before covid & inflation.
We live in Nashville and the quotes are roughly the same. Both are popular areas for weddings - but are these quotes high? Is this inflation driving the price or is it location based pricing?
I would love to hear anyone else's quotes/experiences for reception food/catering! We're planning for a 100-125 guest count wedding.
