Yay! Your big day is coming up so quickly!! I agree with you that you don't need the extra appies, we had 80 people and I think I got enough for 50. I will say that by the time we got to the cocktail hour it was pretty slim pickings for what was left! But all if my guests said they were delicious! I would say to get your photographer to swing by the cocktail hour to take a few photos of the appies and drinks though as the presentation was pretty nice. And that's basically the only way I saw what there was!
I am certain I was charged a set up fee of about the same amount but that included putting the chair bows on both at the ceremony and then moving them to the reception, and setting up everything in the reception including hanging paper balls from the ceiling. I had Ariadna as my coordinator though and she seems to be a lot easier to deal with than pilar!
I know we were stressing about costs adding up, but in the end, paying someone to have it done right was totally worth it!!
@candle23 It's coming SO quickly!! Time has really flown, I feel like I JUST found this site and was getting started planning and that was over a year ago!!
Based on what you said, maybe I'll bump it up to 15 extra servings, or even 20...I certainly don't want to be stingy and leave guests hungry, I just know paying for a serving for each and every person wouldn't be necessary.
Maybe you could shed some light on the setup costs...on my contract, I have a $46.40 charge labeled "SET UP FEE BOWS FROM THE CEREMONY TO THE RECEPTION" which is sounds like is the charge you had, in addition to another $46.40 for "SET UP FEE (DECORATION AT CEREMONY : SEAHELL AT THE CANOPY)." Am I crazy, or does the second charge sound like it's just for one decoration?
