- Wedding: August 2014
Hi! I am in the early planning stages (aiming for a summer wedding in 2014), so I have some basic questions about catering. A few of the venues I am looking at provide the space only, and do not include equipment rental, catering, etc. I think this would be great since I really want to personalize everything BUT:
Is it possible to order food from a local restaurant, bring my own alcohol, and hire a separate company that will come and provide all equipment rentals and servers/bartenders without ordering food through them? It would be awesome if I could get one company that can basically do everything a full service caterer and rental company would do (including set up and breakdown) except provide the actual food and drink!
Is this even feasible? I am on a budget which seems to be on the lower end compared to average venue prices I have been seeing, and I have no idea if going this route (if it exists) would end up being cheaper or more expensive. The reason I want to bring my own food is because I want to order from a specific restaurant, and select my own beer/wine list…
Any advice will help! Thanks so much!! If anyone has any specific companies they know of that fit this description, please let me know! We are looking at Southern California venues, mostly in Malibu but we are open to other locations as well.
