I am serving cheese and crackers prior to a large wedding reception dinner. How many lbs of cheese per 100 guest do I need to have?

Not more than 4 ounces per person,at most. Slice very thinly.

The Industry standard is one ounce per guest, depending on what else you are serving. That would be about 4 bite size servings per person.
