- Wedding: October 2012
okay so my parents are going over the contract for the venue before we sign and send deposits. the caterer has a contract with the venue to be the exclusive caterer for this venue for 5 years. my parents sent the wedding coordinator for the catering company some questions about some statements in the contract. basically in a nutshell, the caterer says we are responsible for EVERYTHING.
here are a few statements we don’t like:
