    We’re doing a restaurant dinner reception so all of that is from the restaurant.  But for the night before, we’re thinking of making a hodgepodge of appetizers or getting pizza while everyone relaxes (we’re having a semi-destination wedding so everyone should be in town the night before and we figure it’ll give everyone a chance to get together and eliminate one more meal from their budget).

    Our venue was also full service when it came to food and alcohol.  We did everything through them except the cake.  One less vendor and it was wonderful 🙂

    Our venue is owned by a catering company. Easy!

    My venue was also full service – they catered, provided alcohol.  The only thing I was allowed to bring in was the cake!

    Our is from a catering company. There are many awesome restaurants that would have been a nice choice, but we need service of the food as well, and were not interested in a restaurant reception.

    Our venue catered the entire event.  They are also contracted with an outside local bakery (an AMAZING bakery that is famous around here), so we got the cake through them too!  Killed lots of birds with one stone with booking our venue!  🙂

    Everything (dinner, hors d’oeuvres, cake, etc) came from a restaurant. We got married at a historic inn that has a restaurant in it, so we just used them for everything.

    our venue has an in-house caterer, and although i don’t like not having as much choice, it is nice to have one less vendor to book/worry about. plus, there wasn’t much of a rental fee for the venue since they make most of the money off of food and alcohol.

    We are having most of the food from a caterer (who luckily is a very close friend of the family) and then for appetizers, and some side dishes we are doing them ourselves, we are also having a pretty laid back reception and ceremony!

    We’re doing our food for the reception, including cake, through Hy-Vee (grocery store). It’s tasty and cheap–why not?

    The only thing our venue allows from the outside is cake & favors.
