- Wedding: May 2011
Hi. I’m new to the boards.I have a question about catering and if the quotes i’m getting are reasonable.
I’ve been contacting caterers and so far the one we really like is Eco Caterers in San Diego. The first quote they gave us was for buffet option of a salad, two main dishes, and two sides plus servers/bartenders etc and it came to almost $4,000 which is waaay out of our budget. I noticed on their site that they provide a drop off option. We figure we don’t really need people hanging out to spoon out food on the plates of our guests. Our wedding is going to be kind of laid back and casual. So I inquired about drop-off only and they sent me back a quote of $2,224 after taxes and service charge. They have a kitchen assistant that will arrive before the food is to be served, set up and then clean it up after the party is over. What do you guys think? Is this a reasonable deal?
