Here I am, planning another daughter's wedding reception.  She would
like to have us buy bulk chinese food for a buffet (not a caterer, but
buy it and use chafing dishes to keep it warm to serve.)  I don't know
how much to buy for approx. 100 guests.  We are planning 5 main
entrees (such as fried rice, fried noodles, beef with broccoli,
lobster sauce w/ white rice, and a chicken dish) plus about 3
appetizer/finger foods (such as egg rolls, crab rangoon, and chicken
fingers.)  I hope you can find me some sites to help with that
Thanks very much.

A researcher might be able to help you better is you indicated where
(general location) we should search.

I am in NH, but I did not think location mattered, since I was looking
for a site that answered general questions about portion amounts, not
what restaurant to order from.  Portion amounts seem similar at all
chinese restaurants, so I just needed sites that would help me plan
how much to order.
There is no answer at this time.

I use these  books "Ken Hom's foolproof Chinese cookery" and K.H.'s
foolproof Thaļ cookery".
The proportions are reliable and include the fact that a chinese lunch
or supper is made of numerous dishes. All you have is to multiplicate
the quantities according to the number of guests.
Hope this will help. 
Have a nice wedding,
