Whats your venue? 

FH and I are having our ceremony/reception at Sodo Park – that particular venue is owned by Herban Feast so we have to use them. However we have hired a pie company and they’ll be making all of our pies for the pie bar, we aren’t doing a cake Laughing

So far I’ve had the most fun in wedding planning going to tastings and dreaming up possible menus. Get ready for some fun!

We had our second meeting with Organic Table yesterday. We’re waiting on our updated proposal, but unless we get some major surprises, we are pretty sure we will go with them (and hope to negotiate any problems). They’re the catering arm of Portage Bay Cafe–if you’ve ever had breakfast at Portage Bay, you’ll know why I’m excited to have them cater our wedding!

Their food is delicious, seasonal, and very local. I also really appreciated that their labor rates are reasonable, they own a lot of their own rentals and don’t mark the rental prices up at all for outside rentals, and all menus are completely customizable.

As for sit down or buffet, it can depend. Sit down can actually often be cheaper because less food is consumed overall and less is wasted because they know exactly how much to make, rather than needing to make too much because you don’t know how many trips people might make down the buffet line…With that said, we’re doing tray passed appetizers during our social hour and then a buffet of hors d’oeuvres for dinner. This is actually more expensive than a traditional buffet because we have all these fussy, little individually made creations, but we felt that it would encourage mingling and moving about the room at our New Year’s Eve wedding.

@pbride – – I was thinking about catering for you and have you looked into RDL Catering?  They own a restaurant in Woodinville.  You should check them out they’re super amazing!!!!

@sapphirebride – – I”m super jealous of you, FH had Portage Bay Cafe cater my 30th birthday brunch and omg it was by far the best gift (and it wasn’t a gift) I have ever received…mmmmmmmm Love that they opened in Ballard, haahaahaa

we’re having Skillet do our wedding- they’re bringing their airstream trailer out to Winthrop and staying for breakfast the next day!  It is a rather affordable option if you want something a little more casual- and their prices are really reasonable at about $18-25 per plate.  Have fun deciding!
