There is this family-owned small chinese food restaraunt near my house that Fiance and I just adore. Recently Fiance and I were considering ordering take-out when I noticed that the menu mentioned that they do CATERING! I was head-over heels!
I met with them today and they helped me put together the most amazing menu consisting of a mix of FIs and my favorite items that we used to get once (sometimes twice) every week! We don’t get to eat there as much since we are saving for the wedding, but every now and then I have to have some of their fried rice and sweet and sour chicken!
Best part is they are (hopefully, we’re waiting on the final quote) catering the entire reception meal for under $1000 for 150-175 people. We’re having a 8 different options with fried or steamed rice and an egg roll all set up at buffet stations. My family will be self-catering salad, beverages, appetizers, and desserts (minus cake!)
Anyone else going with their favorite restaurant for their wedding reception? FI and I feel like it will be an easy and fun way to make the wedding very “us” AND we like giving the restaurant the business cause they are so awesome!

Got my final quote a few days ago and put down the deposit! Deposit is $260 and goes toward the final amount, and my total is $750 + tax & tip!
I’m so excited, they are giving us such a great price because we are regulars! No one else is as excited about the food as I am, so I figured I’d share my joy on here!
My absolute favorite comfort foods, at the lowest price imaginable for my wedding to my best friend? Life is good…

Sounds great! We’re having our favorite restaurant cater, but they actually do a ton of weddings. I live in a resort area with a high destination wedding population, so many of the restaurants cater weddings. I think people often forget to talk to restaurants about catering, they assume they have to use a catering company.
