@Chicagobride36:  Our venue served the same meal to our vendors but only charged us half price for these meals.

Yes, our vendor meals are not full price!  Makes sense as they won’t be using the open bar or cocktail hour portions.

@Chicagobride36:  Most venues have vendor meal prices etc. Ours are $35 and they get a meal and a drink.

@Chicagobride36:  I asked my venue manager, and she assured me they would provide a meal for the vendors at no cost (they give them whichever entree they have the most of)!

Our vendors cost the same price as our other guests, $20/person.

@Chicagobride36:  wow thats a lot of vendors for sure! I believe our vendors’ meal was $35 and guests were like $90.  Alcohol was the main reason!

hope this helps!

Yup, ask your caterer. Our venue provides vendors w a hot meal from a restaurant at $25pp and we just tell them in advance how many vendor meals we’ll need.
