I know, I know. Once you say "wedding" prices go through the roof. But this is New York City. There MUST be someone who can provide great food, tables & chairs, linens, open bar, service, tax etc. (you know, the whole shebang) for 170 people for $20,000. That's roughly $115/head all-in. We're even willing to do something low-key for our wedding cake. Cupcakes plus a one-layer cake or something. We're pretty flexible, but we want the food to be really good -- considering how much damn money we're talking about we don't want it to seem like we're sacrificing.
Has anyone managed to do this? If so, please let us know -- if it was good or, perhaps more importantly, if it was bad, so we'll know who to avoid!
