Oh hell no. I would find someone else. I agree that that is ridiculous.

Don’t look for sympathy on these boards because everyone here thinks I am wrong for not seeing the point in paying for vendor meals if they are not working a full day.

I don’t think there is any question that you should find a different vendor. Regardless of what is “right” or “wrong” in this situation it is obviously something you aren’t pleased with so start looking for someone else. The guy has a right to put whatever he wants (wthin legal parameters) in his contract and you have a right to not hire him. No harm, no foul.

I agree with the PP.  Find someone else.

I agree, that’s pretty ridiculous! He won’t even be there for dinner! Find someone else!!

I agree with edisongirl. If he is only working the ceremony and cocktail hour then he shouldn’t expect a meal.

@edisonsgirl: There’s a difference between only working 3 hrs and leaving before dinner and those working 6+ hrs and being with you all day long, through dinner, and until you leave… 


I personally think he is ridiculous and I would def. find another vendor. For goodness sakes… demanding dinner when he won’t even be there for it!? I’ve never seen that happen….
