I am trying to plan a wedding for about 200 people. I'm not sure how you figure out how much of everything to make. I was thinking stuffed chicken, rigatoni with meatballs, sliced roast beef, garlic potatos, toss salad, vegs. and dinner rolls. Please help

Use the plan for 100 list for all the single items. For the multiple entrees on this menu, including beef, you want to end up with a minimum of 4 ounces cooked beef per person; you need 1 pound raw beef per 3, 1 pound meatballs per 6 if in the rigatoni, per 5 if on the side, and 1 piece (not quarter) of chicken per person for plain roast, or 3 ounces chicken meat, or 6 ounces bone in chicken.
