Default Wedding bid

Just bid a wedding for 125 peeps. 2 prices...1 for buffet (with line servers) and 1 for full service sit down meal.

3 appetizers
salad
Brisket & chicken breast
2 sides

$26/head for buffet
$35/head for full service

This is only my second time bidding a wedding. The request for sit down service really threw me for a loop. Wanted to see if I was being reasonable or am I way off? Always a learning experience for me

I would be a couple bucks less on the buffet, but higher on the service. We pay our servers $20 / hr and sell their time for $40.

I'd be $19-$20 on the buffet. Higher if they want real plates & utensils.
