- Wedding: September 2009
My fiance and I have contacted 4 caterers. None of them have followed-up with us despite saying they would and we have had to continually call them. For example, Caterer A wasn’t sure she was ok working at an event where another caterer would be (we’re serving Sri Lankan and American food), and said she would discuss with her partners and get back to us Monday. We didn’t hear from her Monday. On Tuesday my fiance called her and she was out of the office. On Wednesday he called her again and she said "oh I’ll talk to my partners Thursday". No word from her yet.
In any case, its been this way with all caterers – we have to keep following up even though they tell us they will get back to us (e.g., with sample menu, price, etc). We’re not even using the best in the city – we’ve gone to suburban caterers who should not be as busy … so what gives? Don’t they want business? Are all caterers like this? I feel like I’m begging them to take my money….
