OMG!!!!  I would say, they would not be worth hiring anyways……and I would likely email them back something like …”thank you for your honesty.  We have decided that we would not hire a catering company like you anyways.  We prefer someone who is customer oriented.”

When I got married in Charleston I had some responses similar, but usually worded nicely. Since they are such popular spots the wedding industry isn’t suffering and the best caterers can be picky. My DOC told me a bunch of stories 🙂

Wow, that was pretty effing rude of her.

You may want to get a rough estimate of what you’re willing to spend per person though-will save you and the caterers a lot of time.

Wow, that’s TERRIBLE! Doesn’t “bang for your buck” sort of mean the best food for your money? It sounds to me like they’re saying,”sorry, we only accept clients who want to pay us premium for our mediocre food.” But I’m sure it would have looked fancy as hell… $50 dollars per parsley leaf.

LOL now maybe it’s because I went to business school, but if I saw the line “food is one of the most important parts of the wedding for us”, I would see $$$$$ and get very excited. Since, ya know, usually people are willing to spend more on THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR WEDDING.

But, that could just be the business school talking Tongue Out   What a dumbo!

you wouldn’t want to be dealing with a person like that even if she was the cheapest proposal.  you need to feel really comfortable with the vendors you hire.
