After about 6 months of weighing pro's and con's, and four yummy tastings, we decided on a caterer! The funniest thing about this? Is the fact that the first caterer really hit it home. I loved their food (albeit we need to change the vegetarian entree, but they have many choices). I loved their service. I loved their price.
But because this opportunity to eat great food for free, while every need and idea about food you love is tended to, doesn't come along often -- we shopped around. I know our budget scared some caterers. Many catering companies snubbed my RFP (request for proposal) when they saw the total budget number. Still, we found a total of 4 companies willing to work with us. Those four tastings were heaven (especially when they involved cake)!
When it came time to make a decision we looked at many details. However when we dropped the name of the two finalists, one thing consistently happened: people raved about one and said the other was decent. It happened time and time again, with different vendors and others in-the-know. We then realized we had apples and oranges. It was a no brainer: go with the top-tier catering company. They have the experience. They have the crowd popularity. They have everything we need.
And on my wedding day, I want to know the food and catering will go smoothly, if not also wow the guests.
And so, we chose Windows!
Now to iron out details, sign the proposal, drop the deposit, and schedule a cake tasting!
This is our biggest budget item and a HUGE decision!
Time to celebrate ~ Let's eat!
