Oh goodness! I just want to say that I would be right there with you if I found out that was my caterer. I would have a hard time eating my dinner because I’de be too busy wondering if there was a little friend cooked into my plate.

So sorry this is happening. I hope that your venue will work with you on this issue. They should not have a business like that on their list of preferred vendors.

Ewww and ewwww and ewwwww!!!

Yes, I would definitely pick a different caterer. I would also notify the venue to let them know what is going on and ask them if you can find your own caterer. Our venue also has a list of “approved” caterers, but we were still able to pick our own and just have the venue approve them. It was a really easy process. If the venue lets you pick your own, try checking out some nice restaurants in the area; they might cater and will probably be less expensive than someone that just does catering.

@tinylittlebird: Cockroaches have to be extremely bad for them to be shut down. Personally, I wouldn’t chance it. They are going to have a lot of cleanup to do before they will even be able to pass an inspection.

@tinylittlebird: You might explain to the other caterers that you are contemplating what happened; maybe they will feel sorry for you and add the extras. Just have a really sad face and whine a litte; sound distraught.

I think this is a sign from the wedding gods that you need to get a different caterer.  You are right, everything could be fine within 3 months… but it also could not improve.  And like you said, your guests may find out and come to the wedding looking for cockroaches…  

I’m so sorry!!!!

I agree with finding a new caterer. Cockroaches are almost impossible to kill and all the harsh chemicals that an exterminator would have to use…oh my…pick a new caterer. Don’t worry. Things will work out. They always do. Good luck.
