Oh no! This is not good. I hope you find something that can take the place of your original caterer. And I hope your friend gets better soon and is able to attend your wedding.

I would try talking to some restaurants to see what they offer. It doesn’t hurt to shop around and you have two whole months to find someone. Good luck!!

What are you planning to have for food?  Do you have access to good kitchen facilities?  My husband was a professional chef and we often cater fundraisers for politcal candidates and did my sons wedding for 300 and are planning to do my daughers wedding of 150.  I can’t promise…as he is asleep but he might be willing to come out and do it very reasonably (cost plus travel – we’d probably drive from Michigan).  Let me know what you want to do for food and what you can afford. We own all the chafing dishes/platters etc. but you’d have to rent china or use paper. I would feel awful if this was my daughter and I’m sure David would help if it’s feasable.

Email me at [email protected] because I don’t know how to use this website very well.

One more question, what was you friend going to use for a kitchen?  For my sons wedding we rented 2 townhouses as we had access to two kitchens next door to each other…kinda crazy but it worked (it was out of town)

How about contacting a church group or really stretch it and ask about a local band/football mothers association?  They are always looking for fundraisers, and they can usually cook very well.

It might add up but you can contact a rental company and see how much it would be to rent ovens, stovetops, etc that your caterer needs to cook the food.  Otherwise, maybe the caterer can cook somewhere else and transport everything in a hot box that needs to stay hot.
