As a wedding and event planner, one of the biggest discussions with our clients is their spending plan (budget).  And since the majority of any event’s budget is dedicated to food and beverage, the menu one chooses can either keep one within their spending plan or blow it out of the water.  There are many assumptions that certain meal style services cost more or less (our personal favorite is the myth that Family Style must be less expensive automatically- see why it’s often the most expensive choice and why below).  Professional Chef Rachel Main (formerly of Main Course Catering and private chef to celebrity clientele) recently addressed the top assumptions about meal style and price and we are delighted to feature her as an Expert in the Field Guest Blogger today on Santa Barbara Wine Country Weddings & Events.

Every wedding and special event has a spending plan.  Whether you have $2,000 or $2million, at some point, one has to make choices.  One of the ways many couples decide to save money on their wedding reception food and beverage (the largest “slice” of the wedding budget) is by nixing a formal meal plan altogether.  This is fine in theory, but if not done properly, guests end up paying the price and all that will be remembered was a miserable wedding.
