So before you ask the community to help you price it why don't you post your pricing on the job. Show us what you think you should charge and how you are going to make your money. Then the more experienced caterers can talk about where you may be losing money or where you could improve.

Also, try to get a budget from the client or some kind of price range. This will help you with offering 2 menus at different price ranges, with the higher priced one more attractive to them.

I just noticed that you're a party planner.....so I'm assuming that you won't be prepping the food, beverages etc.

Are you just making sure that your caterer's prices are in line?

Have you shopped around with quotes from other caterers?
