Tom Ross out of Waterloo does catering. He and his wife just did my wedding a few months ago and it was FABULOUS!!! They truly do a wonderful job, and they were not bad at all in price. I would give them a call quick as they do Chicken BBQ's throughout the summer. If you have ever had a chicken BBQ from Wal Mart parking lot, I am sure that you will know who I am talking about. I would call them. 539-9291. I would have them for ANY function in the future, great great food, and friendly service.

and just an FYI do not get your cake from P&C my husband and I did that for our wedding thinking it was cheap and going to be good. The cake itself did taste good, but I was so angry when I showed up at my wedding only to see that the top was sitting next to the cake because P&C did not shape the cake AT ALL and if the top were put on it, the entire thing would have fallen to the floor. The only reason that we went to P&C in the first place was because Linda was going on vacation the same weekend and was unable to do our cake. so a word to the wise..... DO NOT GO TO P&C just a warning.

4 most important Items at a Wedding

#1 - Serve Good beer, no cheap stuff.

#2 - Get a good cake, White, not yellow, not choc not marble
WHITE ! fill it with anything but white is the best.

#3 - Plenty of Jordan Almonds. Nuff Said

#4 - Do the custom where the B anf G kiss when a table sings
a song with the word "love " in it.

I'm begging you not to do #4. Or any other cheesy wedding schtick. I personally HATE being a guest at a wedding and being required to do that stupid stuff. I also hate Jordan almonds and think favors are a waste of money since half the people leave whatever it is on their plate anyway and you end up with a boxful of _______ (almonds, candies, bubbles, etc.) anyway. I think donating favor $ to a charity is the way to go.

?

Ok. I said nothing about meat and I think I specifically begged "no singing" but - sure thing.

I also happen to think serving nuts at parties is a bad idea, since it's a severe allergy. I'd rather not risk killing a guest.

Two things I hate at weddings. The chicken dance and the lost hopeless look on the groom.

Ha!

I hate chicken dances, dollar dances, bouquet toss, favors (just a big waste), and any weird "audience participation" stuff.
