Sounds like a good deal!  I like when they don’t expect some crazy amount to reserve them.  Our caterer didn’t expect a deposit, just a signature but we can cancel within 2 weeks of the wedding, no fees and no questions asked.  I think great service is worth a bit of a higher price.

I think my Hubby’s eyes buldged out of his head a bit when he saw the prices of our caterer too lol, but to us food for the wedding is really important. Finding someone who will work with YOUR needs and not just their ways is awesome, and the fact that they were honest with you will probably end up saving you tons of money in the end.

Looking around is a good idea. We would have but our venue has a caterer that we must use. Luckily they’re great though. The food was amazing and we got to talk with the chef who will be doing everything for our wedding. He was even willing to change thing and do variations and whatever we asked with the menu. In the end we agreed that even though it was rather pricey, in our situation it was worth it.

My dad is a caterer….phew!!!….lucked out on that one..but anyways, I have heard of some caterers who charge for time traveled, but that’s only if it’s a considerable distance having to be traveled, say like a different county. My dad never adds charges as such. But a good thing on your side is that he seems to be very honest no matter what the Q is and that’s always a plus. A good caterer will give you good food, nicely presented. A great caterer will offer customized options according to your budget….keep in mind. And happy hunting!!!
