So I thought I had my caterer worked out... but I'm not sure anymore. Food costs came in where expected about 2k.... but I NEVER thought about staffing costs for the food and she wants 3k ADDITIONAL. I'm trying to work it out with her but I can't do 5k out of an 8k budget (once she added in the rental items it was my ENTIRE budget). So, either she is going to have to reduce her staffing costs or I have to go elsewhere. I'm so frustrated!
FYI-- its going to be 85-100 guests, buffett, NO mix drinks and I'm providing all the drinks. Reception will run from 3pm-1:30am-- but the only people who would have to stay till like maybe 10 or 11 would be the bartender... after that we will have a tiny crowd and we can pour our own drinks :P
So anyway, does anyone have any recommendations for a caterer that will work with a budget.
