We Like to Eat!

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2009

When you mention the word food my ears perk up like a puppy! My FH and I love to eat and we are total food snobs. We have date night usually once a week and we will try a different restaurant every week. We have tried everything from Brazilian food to east Indian food, and honestly we like it all. So when it came down to what kind of food we would have at the wedding we knew that it had to be something great and it would probably cost us a pretty penny to have exactly what we want. We really want our guests to have a great time and talk only good things about our wedding and the food that was served (there will no rubber chicken going on at our wedding). We have lined up meetings with three of the best caterers in our area and I cannot wait to meet with each of them to see exactly what we can get for our budget. The only thing that we know for sure is in order to save a few dollars we will go with a buffet instead if a sit down dinner. We will have it set up on a serpentine table with lots of decor so the presentation will be fabulous. I think its standard at every wedding to have two entree choices, one starch, one salad, & one veggie choice, what more should we include? Is food a big part of your budget or are you splurging on something else in your wedding? If you have already chosen your caterer, if so what is the final cost per person? I would love to hear some ballpark prices from some of you.

Ooh cant help you with comparing prices, but I would say food is a big part of any wedding. I think your menu sounds great!

One thing I learned from my 1st wedding is that we had a LOT of food. Too much food. Or course at the time we were also trying to hit a $$ minimum set by the hotel. This time around I have decided that I want food, but it isn't high on my priority list. It doesn't have to be fancy for us, just taste good.

We ended up at about $13 per person, not including tax, gratuity, and service. Once you factor that in, I'm at about $20 per person.

Tastings are so much fun! I think food is SO important, but I'm a bit of a foodie, so I'm biased. But it's something your guests will remember.
