I am having my wedding reception at the Colonial Dames this November and am in search of a caterer who is reasonably priced. The few caterers I have contacted so far have been more expensive than I was hoping for. Is it possible to find a caterer for around $80 per person at this venue? Anyone had any experience with this? Thanks for any help that can be provided!

Try Catering by Rich! Pricing is amazing too! His website isn’t the best, but I was very impressed. He was very professional and flexible and the food at the tasting was great. My MOH is still talking about it 2 months later. Unfortunately, we didn’t choose him because we ended up nixing professional catering all together for other reasons (total wedding plans overhaul) but I still highly recommend him! Let me know if you have questions. He’s been to colonial dames several times too. I’ve also heard really good things about birchtree catering as well but I know their prices are significantly higher, 70+ pp. Good luck!

I looked at the Colonial Dames and I can’t remember if they have a preferred vendor list. I’d highly recommend Feast Your Eyes. We are actually hosting our wedding at the venue they own (Front & Palmer) in 11 days (woohoo!). They do catering all over the Philadelphia area and we have been super impressed by the food and the communication/ease of planning. The prices were extremely reasonable and we are going all out (6 passed appetizers, fresh mozzarella bar, seated dinner, and dessert bar with 4 different dessert options) and we are within your budget.

I know this post is kind of old, but did you ever find a decently priced caterer by any chance? Just booked at Colonial Dames for 2016 too and am having trouble finding caterers for around 80/guest too! Starting to think it is near impossible…

We ended up hiring Diverse Catering in Bensalem. They have done many events at Colonial Dames and are consummate professionals. We worked with Ken and he was wonderful! Our guests raved about the food and service. Diverse was definitely the most reasonably priced caterer we interviewed, and I checked into every possible caterer – it took forever to do all the research! Anyway, we had a beautiful reception at Colonial Dames and Ken played a big part in making this happen. I would highly recommend him. Best wishes for a wonderful wedding!!
