My fiance and I are getting married May 14, 2011 at The Toronto Argonaut Rowing Club and we need to find a caterer and I have no idea where to start. I was told the Argonaut Club kitchen is a caterers nightmare so I'm hoping to find someone who has worked their before or who is up for the challenge.
We around 80 people on our guest list but it will probably be closer to 60. The hall has table and chairs and a full bar with staff so we are basically in need of everything else (linen's, cutlery, china ect..)
So far the lowest quote Is around $50 per person including linen's, staff, china, flat wear ect. is that about as cheap as I'm going to find?
We are looking for an uber simple dinner either sit down or buffet (salad, meat, potato/rice and veg) coffee/tea and bread (dessert is going to be our cupcakes)
If it was in our budget we would like to do some hors d'oeuvres and a few sandwiches or something late night.
We are on a really tight budget but so cost is a huge factor for us, any suggestions would be helpful.
