Don’t be fooled by their unassuming manner and restaurant, Affordable Elegance has truly awesome food! Perhaps because they have “affordable” in their name, you might get the impression that they are a “make-do” option, but that would be a mistake! We went to all the fancy tasting rooms of many of their competitors in the area – and we unanimously agreed – Affordable Elegance’s food was the best! Great food doesn’t need fancy surroundings and eager salespersons – it speaks for itself. Just because you might pay more doesn’t mean you will get better food or service. Dee-Dee and Greg own their business & they are intimately involved in it. Their somewhat modest business location means they avoid a lot of unnecessary overhead – so the money you pay translates directly into good food and service! At our recent wedding for about 200, every guest raved about the food & we heard not one single complaint.
When we started this, we didn’t realize how important good service would be. Dee-Dee and Camie showed us by example what a difference it makes. They responded to our every question quickly & kindly - & I asked a lot of questions! They have 30 plus years of experience & their answers reflected that. They gave us good common sense advice & helped us avoid expensive mistakes. They were the rock we could always count on. Each time we talked with them, we came away calm & confident that everything was under control and our choices were good ones. It was like having a best friend or favorite aunt looking out for you to make sure your day would turn out perfect (& that you would still have some money left over to spend on a fabulous honeymoon)! How nice that – on our day which was all about celebrating love with friends & family – we had people from Affordable Elegance working with us who felt like friends and family. In turn, they looked out for us like we were their own friends and family.
My advice: if they have your date free - don't wait too long - book them!

I was just married on 09/19/2015 and Affordable Elegance made our reception so wonderful! The company not only provides delicious food but exceptional service!!! From our first tasting until my wedding, I never once was concerned, worried or frustrated. You can definitely trust Dee-Dee and her team for all of your catering needs and they even offer suggestions for decor and logistics too! Affordable Elegance takes pride in what they do and genuinely care about each one of their clients which is evident in how they run thier business! I will tell everyone I know about how AWESOME you are and hope to be able to use you again some day! Thanks for all you did the past year to make our wedding day so special! You were a pleasure to work with. Love, Rebecca and Christopher!

We had our wedding at Hillcrest Country Club and this was their preferred caterer. I must say we were worried at first after my husband(!) and I went to their Sunday brunch and was not impressed. We were actually still worried after our tasting as we weren't especially please with their brisket (to us it seemed unseasoned and the bbq was too sweet for our tastes). If we weren't on a budget, we may have found a different caterer, BUT WoW, did they do a great job at our reception! We had so many great compliments on the food. It has been two weeks and I still have people telling me how wonderful it was. I had a bunch of guests as me if I could get their recipes. We had the stuffed chicken breast and a smoked pork tenderloin. We had mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus as sides. There was also a delicious lettuce salad with scrumptious ranch and a great vinaigrette. We enjoyed it all so much in the end that we wish we could do it again!! Every thing was the correct temperature even though we were about 20 minutes late arriving. We are very thankful to Affordable Elegance for pulling through for us. I gave them all 5 stars because even though we were nervous, it all worked out in the end and every thing was fabulous. It more than made up for our worry.

I can't even begin to explain how much I enjoy working with AEC for our wedding! They are so easy to work with! The food was amazing. Everyone loved it! We had them do cupcakes for our wedding cake. One of our guests had to leave early to head out of town and she texted to save her another cupcake. They are so good! I would work with them all over again!

Affordable Elegance was probably the best vendor I worked with while planning my wedding! The staff was so helpful and answered all my questions (and I had a lot of questions). Their food was delicious and the buffet tables they set up looked great! They were very flexible with the random requests I had, from dropping off/picking up certain supplies a week before the wedding so I wouldn't have to worry about them to bringing tubs to keep drinks cool (at no additional charge). I hired a bartender from them as well who went above what I expected and made the bar area look great as well! Overall, they were great to work with!

Super easy to work with!! We met with the team several times before our big day, including a tasting. We were always planning on doing our food and bar service through them, but they totally came through for us when our cake plans fell through 3 weeks before the wedding and they were able to add that in for us as well, no problem. Fantastic food for a more casual atmosphere (like we had), but could be adjusted to fit a fancy setting. Very very professional, delicious, and overall helpful! We loved them!

Affordable Elegance Catering provided both catering and bar services for my wedding reception, and they did an exceptional job. They performed a tricky room flip in an efficient and professional manner, and the food was fantastic! My cupcake stand was beautiful, and they even provided a mini cake so that we could cut it. The bartender was a huge hit with my guests, and she made a delicious mojito. The staff provides as much or as little guidance as you need, and are very prompt in replying to emails and calls. They are a must for any bride who desires a stress-free and delicious reception!

Everything was good until the cake cutting. They cut the cake topper that I supposed to take with me. Apparently, they were not inform that they're not supposed to cut the very top of the cake.
