If you want the job price it at $25 per each. Figuring meat and sides is the easy part. The aggravation of a wedding reception is the problem. If you don't want it price it higher and just say no. DO NOT get roped into doing ANY decorations!! I lost my ass on a job one time and came out $25 per table short -- fortunately I liked the bride/groom and just considered it a wedding present.

**Edit: I changed my mind...figure minimum $30 per person. Are you cooking on-site? Are you serving? The fried okra caught my eye...are you needing to by the oil and fryer or do you have that stuff on hand. A lot of us BBQ types don't have fryers.***Wedding receptions are billed high for a reason...they are PITA.
