    Yes, you should feed them. Some people will provide extra catered meals, some people get a sandwich tray or something. But yeah, you should feed them something.

    We fed ours.

    Most include a meal in their contract. And what you feed them depends on you. Most venues have vendor meals you can add for less $.

    Yes – feed them.  Ask your caterer what they do for food.  They will likely have a game plan.  Also keep in mind that they will be there for additional time (setup and tear down)

    Yes, you should feed all fo your vendors.  They’ll be around for dinner time, so I’m sure they’d appreciate getting to eat.  Let your caterer know they are vendor meals, though, and they usually have a cheaper meal option for you if budget is a concern.

    I would say feed them. We have seats for our photogs and videographer at the reception. Don’t want any vendors passing out on us. =)

    We offered and paid for our DJ and photographer to have food but they both said they didn’t eat anything while they were working. Still, I think it’s nice to offer.

    I think it’s up to you. But make sure they know ahead of time what you decide.

    it’s rude not to feed your vendors. most caterers will provide cheaper, simpler vendor meals — just ask!

    Yes, you should feed them. We are feeding our DJ and photographer, but its actually a vendor meal they are getting. Talk with your caterer because vendor meals are cheaper than a regular guest meal.

    Yes – i think it’s in most people’s contract

    We even have to feed our makeup stylist, it’s in her contract

    We were given 2 options: vendor meal (boxed food: soda, sandwish, cookie) $30 or a plated meal $40 (the entrees guests get, except no salad or wedding cake)

    Yes, feed them!  You want happy & energetic vendors, not grumpy & hungry ones.  🙂  Our venue offered us the option of the same meal as our guests for 1/2 price.  We will definitely be feeding our band, and photographer.
