    Does anyone have any ideas for me? I'm a groom in a sea of brides and I'm trying to help my over-worked fiance get a handle on some people who might give us good service/food.

    We're getting married in Sept at the Payne Estate and we need your valuable advice.

    Our wedding will have 80 people, so it will be a small affair.

    Thanks.

    I assist my friend as a "day of " assistant whenever my schedule permits. I have worked at weddings over the years that have used Tables of Content. I believe they won Best of Boston a few years ago? The first wedding I went to with them was at the Lyman Estate in Waltham- that was 4 years ago and I still remember the savory carmelized onion cheesecake!

    I believe they can work with all budgets because the weddings I have worked when they were the caterer included 2 at the Gamble Mansion (one was for 20 people), Lyman Estate, and Fogg Museum. I love working with them- one of the owners is always there the night of the event, and the staff is wonderful.

    Tables of Content recently did a wedding at the Admiral's house? in Watertown. My co-worker was talking about a great wedding he went to and how the bride and groom couldn't spend much money, but the location was beautiful and the food was amazing. He even asked the groom who the caterer was!

    Another caterer I remember is Tiger Lily, I have no idea what their prices are like but their food is amazing too!

    Good luck, and SO sweet of you to support your fiance. Wedding planning can be very stressful!

    I used to work for Bakers Best in Newton Highlands. I thought their food was delicious and we worked at a lot of the area venues when I worked there.

    We went to a few events catered by Green Olive and were very impressed with the food and service.

    I am getting married next September at the Gamble Mansion, so we haven't experienced our caterer during our wedding yet, but we have had our tasting and done some initial planning, and so far so good. We are using Cuisine Chez Vous (they are based in Somerville). They are totally willing to work within your budget, and if you don't need a lot of rentals it is really reasonable.

    Good Luck.

    Hi Kelroby,

    Overworked fiance here. Just wondering how affordable vinwood has been for you guys. Any way you could email me privately and give me an idea? We are on a pretty shoestring budget, so cost is a huge factor.

    I had read a lot of old threads, and it seems like some of these caterers might be above our price range. We're talking $55 to $60 per person, including everything, rentals, hors d'oeuvres, coffee, service, taxes, all that. It seems tough to get creative, fabulous food under $6,000 for 80 people.

    Try Truly Jorgs. He is really a pastry shop but also does catering. We originally went to him for just our cake and ended up having him do the whole thing! Our wedding was a similar size. We priced several of the caterers mentioned in this post and found his to be the best price, value and he was awesome to work with. We got married at The Commander's Mansion in Watertown and like you had to bring in everything ourselves! He coordinated everything for us, including setup of our ceremony outside.

    Wow I'm surprised that you said that Truly Jorgs was more expensive than Vinwood. I priced out Vinwood, as well as Bakers Best, Celebrations Gourmet Catering and East Meets West for our wedding last year and they were more expensive. We had a plated dinner so maybe that's where the cost difference is vs. having stations.

    To Everyone who responded to my thread:

    I want to take time to thank you all for helping me. It's given me a lot of great options. Your answers were thoughtful and gave me many ideas.

    I really appreciate it.

    I've lined up a few caterers and will be going through the process of narrowing them down.


    Have a great holiday season.
