So I have heard many people have different meals for their vendors than their guests. I chose to let the vendors pick from what the guests choices were. What did you do? How many vendors did you have?

@CuteAsAButton: I had to feed 5 vendors total, we gave them the choice of ordering from the hotel restaurant or eating off of our buffet.

@CuteAsAButton: my caterer doesn’t do vendor meals exactly but said we can work out a lesser price for the meals I need for my vendors – probably only 3, maybe 4 (if I get a DOC).

Ours ate from the buffet line, after the guest had all gone up.

Our food was served family-style, the vendors got the same options and amounts of food as everyone else, served at the same time.

We had 3 vendors we had to feed – 2 photographers and the DJ. They got to choose out of the same options the guests did.

@CuteAsAButton: We let them eat our buffet food as well as dessert (cupcakes and crepes). If we had a pricey plated dinner, I would only have fed the vendors that spent all day with us or contracted to be fed or given a break to eat. Everyone worked their tushies off though, so I would recommend offering food to everyone!

Ooooh good one, I hadn’t thought of that. I imagine I’d only feed the photographer and the officiant and probably from the same options as guests. We aren’t using a DJ or a chauffeur or anything.

@CuteAsAButton: As of right now I believe we have to feed the two DOCs (we only booked one but she brings an assistant) and photographer. I am unsure about the DJ and his assistant because they said they aren’t sure if they want to be fed? hahahaha Our venue has a specific vendor meal of a sandwhich and fries or chicken and fries so we shall see haha I haven’t even given it much thought because I figure I will ask all of the vendors at the meetings in january what they usually get and if they have food allergies ect.

@CuteAsAButton: We only had to feed the Photographer (our officiant was my best friend and at my table). My venue had a vendor meal. I was paying $75++pp and the vendor meal was like $25 or $30. Plus she needed to eat quickly, so she prefered the gourmet sandwich they gave her.

I have to feed 9 vendors, the vendors meal is 80$ at my venue. Im considering feeding photographers and videographers hot meals, and giving something else to the Dj company staff.

We have 10 vendors including three videographers (I have NO idea why), three photogs (again, no idea), three bartenders (we are having an open bar so that I understand) and a dj. I actually forgot our DOC so I’m glad you all mentioned that.
