Many couples ask if they need to feed their wedding vendors at the reception. The answer is simple, YES! You might be thinking , I'm already paying them a lot for their services. However, don't forget that these professionals are also the ones putting on your special day and will be working many hours that day. You wouldn't go a full day without eating. Plus, you don't want low energy vendors. So, plan on feeding your wedding planner, photographer, DJ or band, along with their assistants.

Once you have figured out how many extras meals you need to let your caterer know a final headcount. Make sure your specify the extra meals are for your vendors. The caterer may give you a discount for these meals. Don't forget to designate a spot for the vendors to eat during their breaks.

So, there it is. Feed your vendors! If you still have trouble deciding who to feed, count anyone who will be at your reception.
