I'm catering a wedding for 100 with 5 happy hour appetizers followed by a buffet dinner of pork, potatoes, vegetable, salad and a pasta. I will also provide 4 servers and bartender. How do I charge?

Generally, event pricing uses this formula: 

Food cost
+ Fixed costs (insurance, licensing etc) 
+ Variable costs (rentals, travel etc) 
+ Labor help 
+ Your fee/labor (shopping, planning, consultion etc) 
+ Desired profit. 
Add in tax etc, divide by # guests to get price per person.
