I'm getting married April 19th next year at Alhambra Hall, and I was wondering if anyone has input about caterers. I'm trying to keep it as low-cost as I can, but I also recognize that food and booze are what people will remember. We'll probably have between 100 and 120 guests. My fiance is dead-set on having shrimp and grits, other than that I'm pretty open-minded about the menu. Who do y'all think is the biggest bang for your buck? How much does catering cost in general, and how much of a deposit is required? I am pretty clueless about this stuff so far, but I need to get booking and I don't want to be taken for a fool for not doing my research. I'm hearing so many different things from different people, and I'm hoping to see some consistent reviews of a few caterers so I know where to start.
Thank you for your help.
