Just book them!
Critic's Choice SAVED OUR WEDDING! When COVID hit, we found ourselves re-planning our wedding only about 3 months before. We had an all-inclusive venue and then all of a sudden were building a whole new team.Sent on 11/11/2020
We found Critic's Choice through a recommendation of another bride. We compared between Critic's Choice and a few other vendors, but ultimately went with Critic's Choice because of their flexibility, communication, and overall ability to work with our smaller group, but still give us the full package.
Kaycie with Critic's Choice spent A LOT of time replying to emails and answering my questions to ensure I felt supported and knew they could do it all...and they could! We booked them pretty quickly and they were just incredible. They offered us a food tasting that we never expected for a smaller group, but it was wonderful. The food was delicious and the service excellent. When wedding day came, the food tasted just as good as we remembered! Like truly...it was SO YUMMY!!!!
In addition, the team gifted us a few surprises that really helped make our day special. They truly went above and beyond to make us feel well taken care of and make our dream wedding came true! They took my vision for decor and look of the day and made it happen.
They were able to work with our budget, guest count, and all dietary restrictions! They were respectful, knowledgeable, professional. Everyone from the catering coordinator, to the chef, servers, bartenders, etc...the whole crew was top notch!
People were raving about our custom his/her drinks! Normally those aren't super popular at weddings, but we picked our favorites and they did it all well! The guests couldn't stop talking about how delicious they were.
I could keep going on and on about how incredible this service was, but I will leave it at this:
If you are considering Critic's Choice, stop considering and just book them. They will not disappoint!

Critic's Choice was on our venue's preferred caterer list so we decided to check them out. We worked with Lorraine throughout the planning process. She always went above and beyond during our wedding planning and was very good at responding promptly to any questions we had. Critic's prices are VERY reasonable considering everything you get. The quality of the food on our wedding day was just as good as it was at our tasting. Critic's also offers a very reasonably priced wedding package that includes a ton of stuff like the wedding cake, napkin and table linens, coffee bar, etc. Another plus is that they have several bar packages available (we were able to provide all of the alcohol and they provided the bartenders and mixers which saved us a ton of money considering we were able to have an open bar for the duration of our wedding). The only "bump" we ran into was that the napkin linens ended up being the wrong color on the day of. Not too sure what happened there, but in the grand scheme of things, this was such a minor fault that we'd still give Critic's a 5-star rating. Thanks Lorraine and Critic's Choice!Sent on 11/27/2019
