I am so sorry!  I felt the same way and ended up going with Whole Foods in Austin. They quoted me #3500 for 100 people, which is still more than I wanted to pay originally.  I am not sure if the stores in dalla/FW do full service catering?  Good luck! 

I also told them I wanted to “coordinate” the rentals myself and that saved an additional fee on the rentals.  All I had to do was call the rental company myself and arrange pick up/drop off.

Wow that is pretty crazy!

For the linens have you thought about just buying? I know that what I found was just 1 dollar more than the listed price for rental (before the rental tax which is more than regulare tax) And I didn’t have any shipping or tax added on to my order.

They’re legit & I’ve ordered from them before & was very happy!

I know this doesn’t fix your stupid caterer but it may help another issue 😉

Keep your chin up It’s almost over & then you get to start the fun part… what it’s really all about =)

@Mrs Hedgehog:  What’s your venue?  Which caterers have you looked at so far?

Bass Hall, WOW!  I’m jealous!

We’re at the Addison Event Center, which does its own catering.

What kind of food are you looking for?

$6000 for 100 people is $60/person, and it includes cake which runs about $5 and up per person… for really amazing, wonderful food, I’d say that’s not too bad.
