I wouldn’t be too worried about it if your caterer has worked with them.  Has your correspondance with them been over email? 

I would ensure I followed up each phone conversation with an email, so you at least have some documentation for it but hopefully they’re being recommended because they’ve been good to work with.

Good luck!

WOW…that sounds like something to be concerned about. I also went with a recommendation from our venue. I however had to go place my order, pay for it up front and then bring back the unopened bottles myself. They delivered and I did get a written “receipt” of what I bought. It was not a contract per se but I had not problems. They even bought back my beer that they at first told me they would not. We had alot of beer left over. WHEW!!

I’d check with the caterer to see if they will “vouch” for them. If you still feel uncomfortable with it (esp. giving a credit card) ask if you can give them a cash deposit and then get a refund later. BUT still get something in writing, a receipt at least.
