@Globex:  Sorry let me be more specific. The fee is from McMichael to the caterer and the caterer passes the fee onto us.

I thought the same thing you did – that because we signed our contract with McMichael before, any new fees shouldn’t apply to us.

@amyjanestokes:  Good to know, thanks!…so if we don’t change caterers, then old fee stays as is (I assume). But if we change, then the new fee may (will) apply? 

So you already cancelled with Encore and switched caterers? To PG? I saw that you were signed with Encore but now you are mentioning new caterers.

@MsGinkgo:  Hmm, brings up an interesting question though. Will the caterers charge you the landmark fee anyways for what you purchased in soft bar and alcohol? If not, that would be awesome, because that’s an additional 16% of the drinks cost saved…

@Globex:  Had to change my account, sorry.
That’s correct. If you continue with Encore and signed before McMichael changed its rules, you won’t have to pay the Kitchen Fee. If you re-sign with someone else you have to pay. It was really disappointing rules.

I love to have found other McMichael brides, too. It’s nice to get other bride’s perspectives, especially when they know the venue!

Good question about the landmark fee regards to bringing in your own alcohol. That’s why I would never imagine McMichael allowing people to supply their own, beacuse they loose out on the 16% of the bar tab. 

No, I haven’t switched caterers yet. We were still running the numbers, up until last night. But I think we have made our decision.

@MsGinkgo:  It was PG’s suggestions that you supplied your own bar? That’s pretty awesome. I have a meeting with PG next week – I’ll see if I can get some more detail about it. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

@trentgirl:  Did you end up deciding on PG? ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We’re waiting on a new quote form them, we got an earlier quote from them for another venue. The 16% landmark fee saved from drinks would even out with the kitchen rental fee probably. 

How’s their deposit policy? The original quote we had mentioned something like an 80% non-refundable deposit, which seems a little overkill to us. Though maybe it’s different for large wedding catering contracts.

@Globex:  It’s only 10% deposit, on ours.
Their cancellation policy is: thirty days prior to the function date, a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the estimated subtotal will be charged. Cancelled within ten days prior to the event date, the full value of contract will be invoiced.
