I am in teh early states of planning my wedding long distance. I am having a small wedding for around 50 guests. Those of you that have reserched diffrent options, did you find it was best to go with a full sevice venue that provided on site catering paying per person for food and alcohol or using a venue you can hire your own caterer? Which is more cost effective budget wise? I am having a hard time getting an idea of cost with private catering bc most want me to do a tasteing in person before they can give me estmated cost. I am planning this wedding from abroad and will not be in teh city of my wedding for another 6 months. I want to get a cost idea now, so I can decide which benue to choose, one with on site catering or one where I hire my own caterer.
Thanks for any help!
