My problem is that I don't know how much of each meat to buy, and I am unsure how much fruit to buy as well. Please help! Thank you!

It takes 3 people manning the grill full time to do grilling for 120 people, and they can't be part of the wedding party, because they have to start cooking while you are still getting married.

For 120 people:
steak tips-1 pound raw for each 3 persons
potato salad- 40 pounds potatoes
