Outpost Natural Foods
We loved the options Outpost provided and that the food was all organic. We also liked that when we emailed we usually got a response back rather quickly. We did not like the cost,they were very expensive compared to other companies. We went with them thinking the quality of food would be higher than other companies. However, our guests later complained to us that their food was cold, which was a huge disappointment for us. Looking back, especially for the cost, we probably would have gone elsewhere.
We had a rehearsal lunch instead of a rehearsal dinner the weekend before the wedding. Some of our family members had already arrived in from out of town, and we decided to mark the start of the wedding week with a Sunday Lunch. We’re members of the Outpost Natural Food Co-ops, and we have ordered their box lunches before for family picnics. This time we ordered platters, which was great. They have lots of vegetarian options, but we usually order free-range chicken and hormone free beef. We still ordered the typical meat and cheese platter that everyone loves, along with sandwich platters and cookie trays and humus trays. I think this was a great option for big groups, because by ordering through the Co-Op you’re guaranteed high quality food.
I had never eaten cake at a wedding before, mainly because I find that the cakes are really sweet and they follow the end of the meal. When we went ‘shopping’ for a wedding cake, which we though was necessary, we found that we couldn’t find a wedding cake for less than $300. We thought that it was a waste to get a big cake that maybe only half the guests would eat, so we opted for a late night cookie and dessert table. We bought several trays of mixed desserts from the OutPost Coop, which make amazing and delicious desserts. Avonell was excellent at understanding what kind of desserts we wanted, and she helped us pick the best trays that would give us the most food for our money. I really recommend the mini cookies, and I also recommend to bring out the cookies around midnight, because that’s when people want and need the sugar rush.
