The new trend that allows couples to save thousands on catering is to serve a whole roasted pig or lamb on a spit. About 70 to 80 guests of a garden wedding can be fed comfortably by a whole roast pig that is accompanied by salads and side dishes. A sit-down dinner can cost between $150 and $200 per guest while a whole roast pig or lamb only costs about $633. For 90 guests, the wedding couple will be spending $7 per head. When the roast pig is purchased with a buffet side dish, the total will be about $29 per guest.
