I posted a few days ago regarding venues, but didn't get any replies
Anyways, I will be serving Pakistani food, and because I'm Muslim, the meat has to be halaal. I'm getting married next year, but can't seem to find a venue (that I like and is big enough for my ridiculously large guest list) that either doesn't have a contract with an exclusive caterer or an in-house chef. Can any of you Southasian knotties help? Were you able to negotiate to bring an outside caterer, or did you just look at venues that allowed outside catering? Thanks for any advice/help you can give. It'd be much appreciated.
p.s. the only reason I'm posting here is because I'm assuming a good portion of you served traditional Southasian cuisine.
