Hello PW Divas!
SO lately I've been feeling like I am one of the judges on CHOPPED. I've been looking for a caterer and have not had any luck so far. I've interviewed and recieved quotes from 6 caterers, and the only thing I've acomplished to do was give myself a great big headache. One of the main reasons I chose my venue was because it allowed me to choose my own caterer. I was completely excited about it cause I figured it would equal out to be major savings for me. So far, I'm not seeing the savings!! I've interviewed about 6 caterers and so far, I'm just not thrilled about the quotes I've been getting.
I am expecting a guest count of about 120 max. The lowest price quote I recieved was about $7,000 and that is not including tax and gratuity! Does anyone else think that is rediculous? I can see spending that kind of money on some fancy food that I can't pronounce, but spending that on some stuffed chicking with bread stuffing or some roast beef....I don't think so.
So for now I am still on the hunt. I am waiting for quotes from 3 promising caterers who were willing to work with me on my budget. Hopefully I can get this finalized so I can start working on other parts of the wedding. Wish me luck girls...

Your inspirations are awesome and love your colors. So far your doing great with your planning, dont worry you will find a caterer. Do you have a favorite resturant? check with them because sometimes you can get them to caterer for you and since you already like their food, you would know what your getting.
