Food price

I think picking the food to serve is the HARDEST part of planning this wedding!! That being said, future brides, past brides, etc what do you think is a reasonable price for catering? The one I am looking at is 25 pp but includes the plates and silverware (which the reception area doesn’t supply) staff to serve, clean and set up. I have about 75 people as a rough draft. Should I keep looking for something less expensive or is this a good deal?
At this rate I’m probably just going to order some platters from Subway lololol

    We are paying $75 a person, but that was before they jacked up the prices, now it's $95 a person. but you're looking at anywhere from $50-$100+. But that seems like a really great deal.

    Yes good idea! They offer lots of chicken. So I’ll have to really look into the menu to make sure

    It’s so funny how the food is one of the most expensive parts 🤦🏼‍♀️ But thank you! This makes me feel better. Especially when things are included. I always thought the catering would be easier. Aka 15$ a plate tops 😂😂

    The place I'm looking at averages between $30-$40 per person and includes dishes, servers, table linens, and all that as it's part of a venue. Honestly, looking at rentals of dishes and silverware, unless you get paper plates, it's expensive, so having that included really helps. Most restaurants will charge around $25-$30 for a meal, at least the places I've been to recently, so that seems like a good price.
    But like others said, see what that includes, because some places will charge more for having a starter like soup or salad.

    We paid 85 per plate so 25 sounds great. But I would check and see what kind of food you get with that price though

    This sounds like a pretty good price but I guess it depends what it includes in the way of food
