lil' tip: caterers usually ask for a final head count a week or so before an event. word to the wise, it's smart to say slightly lower than anticipated. inevitably 1 or 2 people call last minute to cancel. you never know who's going to break up with their boyfriend, get locked in a bathroom or flee the country due to reasons unknown. case in point: we told our caterer 2 less than our actual count & wouldn't you know it, 2 people didn't show! their loss if you ask me, but seriously, it saved us money. if we had told our caterer the actual count, we would have paid for 2 untouched plates! caterers always have extra food for a few more & will just add to the final bill. don't think, just do it.
