I know how you feel.  Out of all of the vendors that we contacted, the caterers seemed to take the longest to reply. 

We are going with a caterer that does a lot of the cooking himself.  Yes, it usually takes him a little while to get back to me, but he does a lot of the events himself and some of them are even out of town.  Ultimately, we felt that we could live with the delay in response.

Good luck and hang in there!

You may be asking them too soon to give you accurate prices since your wedding is still so far away. If they are busy, and also depending on the size of your event, it will probably take them longer to respond to you. It seemed to be that way for us when we were looking too. The ‘hungry’ ones were much quicker in getting back to us!

The one thing we made sure of doing was once we decided to hire our caterers, was that with a signed contract and deposit, they would not increase the prices.

It can be frustrating for sure, but it seems to be pretty common with a lot of wedding vendors.
