Creative/budget-friendly caterer for Queens wedding???

I'm planning a wedding this fall for 230 guests and am searching for a caterer.  We are trying to find an inexpensive caterer rather than have to cut the guest list.  We're open to alternative/creative solutions to reduce the cost per person - cocktail party with a substantial amount of food, BBQ, stations, buffet, etc.  We don't want to sacrifice good quality service and food, and we want our guests to feel satisfied.  Ideally they'd also be able to handle the rentals for us as well but that's not a deal breaker.  Does anyone have recommendations of caterers to contact??  Any good experiences with caterers willing to work within a budget?  Thank you!

    wow 230 guests! Where are you hosting your wedding? Have you asked for their preferred vendors list?

    Can I ask, did you ever find a caterer ? Would you recommend them? I'm looking for one in the same area. Thanks!

  • Try Naturally Delicious, or Cayenne Catering (ask for Oonagh). Both companies are AMAZING, and willing to work within your budget to come up with a unique menu. We haven't been able to decide which of the two we want yet, both are fantastic. Where is your venue?
