- Wedding: August 2012
Anyone have any good catering suggestions for upstate NY? Our wedding is in Rochester NY, but the wedding is in August, and so at this point we need to consider a slightly wider area if we can.
Backstory: we’re having a pretty casual wedding celebration for about 100 friends/family in August. We had thought about doing something really casual, like picnic food, but decided to go with a slightly nicer caterer mostly to make the day-of smoother, but… we just found out that we had a miscommunication and the caterer’s out.
(My mom secured the date with her in February, and they met to talk about menu planning, but shortly after a family member was diagnosed with cancer, and my mom’s last communication with the caterer was that they would firm up the menu when things calmed down…
My mom was under the impression from the series of communications/meetings they had in February and March that she had secured the date and the menu was the only thing pending, but when she spoke to the caterer today, the caterer had re-booked that date for a different event, without ever consulting us.
Apparently she just hadn’t put it down on her calendar even after all the communication they’d had. I thought my mom and the caterer had been speaking all along… Anyway, communication! It’s important…)
At any rate, wondering if anyone has any ideas of a caterer, or any other inspirations as to how we might pull this off if we can’t find anyone!
Only hitch is I’m vegetarian, as are most of our guests, so I’d prefer to go with somebody that can put on something decently fresh and meatless if possible.
