There are certain venues that allow outside catering. Most that do still have preferred list of caterers. Is this wedding going to be at someone's home? If not, I can help you find a venue that allows ANY outside catering. www.weddingliaison.com/findavenue Carolyn Burke - Wedding Liaison

Is it too late to ask wedding questions? Will this offer be repeated?

Sorry to blatantly advertise but it seems I'm not the only one. The Wyman Center right here in Eureka is a popular venue for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions, and the money goes to a great cause...helping our financially disadvantages teens out of the cycle of poverty. We offer multiple packages and also allow any outside catering or we can provide it. http://experiencewyman.org/packages/wedding/
