I need some advice! I am early in the wedding planning and searching for venues in Boston. It is really important to my fiance that his mom makes our wedding cake (she is not certified, but she has made cakes for money before). I asked the venue if we would be able to bring our own cake for dessert and they responded that it would be fine, we would just have to prove it came from a certified bakery. We have an appointment with this venue today - is this something that I can negotiate? Will I run into this problem with other venues? It's not even necessarily a cost-saving issue - it's important to my fiance - and he hasn't had many strong opinions on the wedding planning so far!
Thanks for your help!
