 I’m sure it will all work out for the better…take a deep breath!  You still have plenty of time and New Orleans is full of caterers 🙂

We are only about 1 month out from our wedding and just found out last week that our venue no longer has a chef to cook for us!  Fortunately we (not our venue) found another one pretty quickly, who was available, and who is actually cheaper than our venue would have been for the food! 

Things always have a way of working out…

That sucks! Have you looked into having your favorite restaurant cater? They are usually cheaper than wedding caterers (with more things added that you are not nickled and dimed for) and you already know what the food quality and taste are like. Also, they don’t need advance notice several months ahead of time like a wedding caterer does. A week or three is plenty but ask them to be sure.

If you want to do the tasting yourself, then don’t let anyone stop you since that is your right as a bride who is planning her only wedding. Plus, while people may share similar tastes in foods, no one but you knows exactly what you like and what you don’t, which is another reason to do the tasting yourself.

Oh bummer! But… like you said, better to know now that a couple weeks (or days!) before your wedding. 6 months is still plenty of time to get a caterer nailed down.

Good luck!!!

@nola, you won’t know until you ask. Make sure to speak with the manager since the hostess and other servers don’t have that information.
