What were the good things about this catering company? Was the food fabulous? Was the presentation fabulous? If the food genuinely was out of this world, I would consider keeping them, with the conditions your coordinator suggested.

However, if it was just okay or a little above okay and the value isn’t like AMAZING, then I would consider at least trying out other vendors, especially since you can still get your deposit back. A lot of caterers can do several events a night, so it isn’t necessarily too late to find someone else. The catering is such a big part of the event that I would want to be able to trust them (and really, all my other vendors) 100% the day of.

This would sketch me out, however, how is this impacting their wedding jobs? Are they leaving the bride/groom high and dry? If so, I’d run, but if they are honoring their commitments to brides and grooms and all other catering jobs, then I wouldn’t worry so much about them not showing the day-of…

What sort of reviews have you seen online about your catering company? What did you referrals say about them?

It is possible that your DOC is trying to steal the business/get a kick back from the other caterer?

I would say that a) that was a good move, the last thing you need is to worry about if your caterer is going to show up to a wedding you’ve paid him loads to cater! b) food isn’t ordered until RIGHT before an event is done so it doesn’t go bad, so at this point I can’t think of a single thing your caterer might hvae incured that he should not be fully refunding your deposit. And if they try to say there are I’d ask for a full accounting of what that is
