We ordered vendor meals for our Photographer, DJ and Photobooth attendant.

We added the photographer to the seating chart as well.

Ours require them in the contract but I would have given it to them anyway. I wouldn’t want to work that long with no food! It just isn’t healthy!

I was going to feed them, but when I booked my photographers (a husband-wife team), the insisted that they not be fed. They prefer to carry a snack on them and not miss any of the action. They said that if we order a meal for them, it will not be eaten.

We fed ours.  It was part of our contract with them.  🙂

You should purchase vendor meals for your vendors. They will usually eat quickly while you and your groom are enjoying dinner so they don’t miss anything. Most venues usually charge a lesser price for vendor meals too. 🙂

Just ask your photographer what their policy is.  I asked because our DJ contract says to include a meal. 

Our photographer said he usually brings his own food and snacks.  Every vendor is different, so I would just ask.

We didn’t feed our photographer, but we didn’t have a true reception yet. We did offer her some cake, which she said she would like, but ended up not coming back into the B&B to get. We did give her a bottle of champagne though, because she helped me in so many ways above and beyond what a photographer does.

Yup! I want my photog to be fully functional rather than delirious from hunger! 🙂

We just added our vendors (DJ, photographers, etc) into our headcount for the venue.  We had a buffet so there was no separate “vendor meal”.
