Hello! First time posting here and I’m sure there’s been this question asked a billion times but I’m going to reach out anyway.
I’m having a May 2016 wedding in the Philadelphia suburbs and the catering costs are killing me. We have a venue picked out that allows you to bring your own caterer and booze (The Highlands in Fort Washington). I’m having a smaller wedding of 75-80 people and our catering budget (including service and china/flatware/glassware) is about $2500-$3000. Is this possible? Am I crazy? Can anyone recommend a caterer that will work with us? At this point, I’d even be OK using paper plates and clear plastic glassware! sheesh! HELP PLEASE! I’m having a meltdown! Thanks!

I can’t help much, but have you considered going to a mom and pop restaurant to see if they cater? The prices might be a lot lower.

For a minute, I was like, “Did I write this post?” I am in the exact same boat, so I may be of some use.
I have a friend who is getting married at the Highlands in a couple months. I myself may be using one of their recommended caterers for my own wedding, though I am not getting married there. They are called the Moose and Goose, they do low-key sort of low county barbecue and picnic type food. I also have a budget of $3000, and I know, it is SO HARD! Like, why would I want to pay $80 a person for tasteless caterered food? It makes no sense.
Some other options I’m looking at are Baird’s Catering in Pottstown and Summit Catering. Both have packages that are somewhat doable in my budget.

Don’t know what budgets they work with, but I’d e-mail Diverse Catering and Divine Catering in Ridley.
