Weddings are an expensive time, venue, flowers, dresses, and typically one of the major costs… food!
Ho many people should be allowed to pick off the menu ? You don’t want to ‘rip anyone off’ but we all know that price tag builds up quick.
We tried to clear the air a little and find out just which vendors need to be on the meal list.
Mike, a chef who caters for weddings said it was a bit of a ‘grey area for a lot of couples.
If the caterer is has to feed the band, the florist, photographer, and every other vendor involved in the wending, that could total up to another 20+ people. That could’ve been 20 extra friends and/or family catered for who didn't quite make the guest list.
At Bex’s wedding, she only covered meals for the photographers, and only because they were family friends.
Back in March, Jeff from Kurow had his wedding, where he was quite similar to Bex and only fed the photographer.
His rule was basically anyone who wasn't there during the dinner part of the evening was not supplied food.
It may be a courtesy, but every wedding is different.
