Choosing service providers and food vendors for your wedding can be a nightmare considering the budget and other specific needs.
Imagine a wedding without food or food isn't served on time or finishes before the couple even arrives! And even where the food does not run out, what if the food is bad, the service is slow or there's just no variety? Nightmare!
