I am scheduled to cater a wedding of 100-125 for a friend (yikes). Although I've done events before, they've never been this large, and never full-course meals.

The menu will be something basic like chicken, some sort of beef, 2 or 3 vegetables, rice and potatoes. Also, are there any suggestions for a basic menu, and how much food I would need for such a crowd? Thanks for ANY help that anyone can provide. My e-mail address is
