How much does a typical wedding caterer cost?

Category: Weddings


It really depends on the type of wedding reception you are having. If it is a simple reception, serving only hors d’oeuvres with beer and wine, the cost can be anywhere from $40 to $60 per person. A formal seated dinner is where the costs start to pile up. It wouldn’t be uncommon for a reception at a hotel or other venue to exceed $150 to $300 per person. This will often include passed hors d’ oeuvres, a sit-down multi-course meal, and an open bar. According to “The Bridal Association of America”, the average wedding catering cost, including food, drink, and cake will often exceed $13k. Catering fees will also be as much as 30 % higher in larger cities.
