I am astounded by how much it costs to feed my guests. I am expecting about 150 people and the running rate of a full proposal is $10,000. At a rate of $55 a head. I have been on top of each catering company, breaking it down saying that I can only afford MAX of $25/$30 a head for food only. All of the companies that I have been telling this to, seem to be struggling with it and those that have gotten back to me, can only do min. $7000.
I will admit, I am a natural coupon lady. I use any discount that I can find on my normal day-to-day activities (i.e. scout-mob restuarants, always google for a coupon code anytime I buy things online.) So, with that being said, I feel like there HAS to be a way to find a cheaper option of catering. Should I consider an earlier reception time - so I dont have to pay for a huge meal? Or should I just get over this and pay the cheapest cost I can find?
