My wife and I highly recommend Big Girls Catering. The Wedding Planning for Catering, Wedding Cake and Floral was very easy with their one stop shopping for all. Everything went as planned, the food was GREAT, everyone loved the food and most folks wanted more. There was nothing but compliments from the guests who attended our Wedding. The Flowers were Beautiful and the Wedding Cake was Delicious. Vita did a fantastic job with the Catering for the Reception. Big Girls Catering, Sarah, with Cakehouse on Main and Terri Hollifield, The European Garden Florist provided an exceptional Wedding experience for us. We appreciate the effort in making our Wedding an enjoyable experience. August & Susy
I couldn’t have asked for a better catering company. The food was delicious, their customer service was some of the best I have ever received and Vita really did everything she possibly could have to make our most memorable day special as well as affordable. She worked with our budget extremely well and went above and beyond for us on the day of. I highly recommend this company for any catering needs and I will always use them in the future!
We cannot say enough nice things about Big Girls Catering! They were an absolute pleasure to work with. We never and any issues with the planning process and they did everything they said they would. The food itself was delicious. All of our guests were very impressed. I would recommend them to anyone looking for catering and we will use them again in the future. Everyone who works there is so friendly, helpful and makes you feel special. We are a very happy with our experience with them!
I would highly recommend Big Girls Catering. For one, their food is AMAZING. I had many people tell me it was one of the best wedding meals they've ever had (pork loin, stuffed chicken, green beans, squash casserole, mac n cheese). Their manager, Vita, is fantastic. She went above and beyond to make sure I had a perfect wedding, even as going so far in chasing me down to eat! You would not go wrong in picking this company, they obviously love what they do.
I have nothing but good things to say about Ami & Cindy & the Big Girls Catering staff. They were absolutely the best caterers we contacted in our search. We chose rosemary lamb chops & stuffed chicken, lemon Parmesan asparagus, wild mushroom orzo, and a salad they put together at my request. We also rented china, flatware & glassware from them. They were so very accommodating and friendly and were by far the best value of all the caterers that gave us quotes. I have no regrets about our decision to go with Big Girls Catering. Our guests loved the food, and we had a 100% positive experience with them.
Thank you so much for your wondeful review! We loved catering for y'all, you stretched our cooking abilities by creating your own awesome menu...which we have now added to our regular menu !
Your family and friends were just the best to serve that evening.
We wish all the love and happiness God gives each day!
Ami and Cindy
Ami and Cindy are FABULOUS! Their food is delicious, and they helped me save money with a greater variety of food choices! Love them!
Thanks Leah!! We can't wait until your wedding. You're sweet to give us a review before your big day!
Wonderful people and delicious food. Big Girls was the best catering decision I could have made. They were great to work with. Flexible, knowledgable and helpful. Did I mention delicious food... my guests raved about all the food. Love them and will use them again for any event.
Thank you Katherine! We enjoyed working with y'all so much! Congratulations and thank you for the sweet review!
Ami & Cindy
Big Girls Catering was amazing!!! Ami and Cindy were awesome to work with. Planning a wedding when you live out of town can be stressful, but they were so easy to work with and very accommodating (especially when I was trying to make it into town for a tasting.)
The communication was great, they got back to me right away, even if it was late at night or early in the morning when I had a random question. We decided to do just appetizers for our wedding. They had some great suggestions and everything was delicious and beautiful! Sara did our cake and assorted mini cupcakes. AMAZING and beautiful! The staff that came to the wedding were the best. Vita was amazing and made sure the night went smoothly and made sure I had everything I needed and more!! (Hailey and Hunter were great too) if you are looking for a caterer, I highly recommend Big Girls Catering!!! You will not be disappointed !!!
Big girls catering was the Big epic FAIL at my wedding!!!! They made me and my family look ridiculous when guest stood around for the appetizer hour and there were NO appetizers!!! They forgot all about them! Then they didn't refund us the full amount we paid for the appetizers and refused to refund us the money we paid for two additional servers to pass out the appetizers!!!! It was so kind of them to lie to my face saying they would refund us for their mistakes! Then the menu wasn't what we ordered. We paid for smoked quarter chickens and they gave us grilled chicken tenders. Then they were too dry to even eat!!! Then we had many not stay for dinner and they still ran out of food!!!! Rather than talking about a great reception I hear complaints about food! #ishouldhaveorderedpizza
Laura and Eric: Thank you for your candid review of your wedding reception. In the 16 years we have been in business, we have never messed up so badly. We cannot say sorry enough to you. Our apology that day was truly sincere and giving a refund to your family was the best way we knew to handle the forgotten appetizers. You were not charged for any additional servers. Your original proposal had 4 servers on it as well as your final invoice. In actuality, we sent 7 servers for your reception at no additional charge to you. We base the amount on service staff on total guest count and not the menu being served. We will send you a private email with your original proposal based on 150 guests. We will also include the final invoice based on the final guest count of 175 and the canceled check of $700.00 that covered the cost of the forgotten appetizers. In regards to running out of food - we are not quite sure how to answer that complaint because all extra food from the buffet was covered and put in the refrigerator for your family to take home. There were leftovers of everything from the buffet. We heard nothing but compliments from your family & friends that day regarding the food so we hate the fact that when you think of your wedding reception, you only think of an "epic fail" and "i should have ordered pizza" instead of all the many happy memories of the day.
My husband and I were unable to use Ami and Cindi to cater our wedding, however Ami was so kind to try and help anyway she could when our wedding planning got really difficult. She referred us to their wedding coordinator, Kristi. Kristi was an answer to prayer for my husband and I. A month and a half out from our wedding we found ourselves in a really bad situation with a wedding coordinator we had been working with since the beginning of our engagement and were left without a coordinator, and our wedding plans basically up in the air due to budget issues. Kristi literally came to our rescue and made the last month of wedding planning stress free. Saying that she went above and beyond for us, does not even give what she did for us justice. We were complete strangers when we met. She had no reason to do all that she did for us, other than her love for wedding coordinating and her genuine desire to give her couples the wedding day that they dream of. She was so considerate about how she gave her opinions, always making sure her opinion reflected what she thought was best for us, and not what would be best for her business or her image. She is so selfless, hard working, quick to respond to emails and texts, and just all around what everyone needs in an event coordinator. You will not regret booking with her!
These ladies did such a great job with the food for my wedding and making sure my husband and I got to eat. Their service was amazing and made everything run sooo smooth. I definitely recommend them!!!
Ami and Cindy did a wonderful job on our brunch buffet wedding.
From our initial meeting, and tasting they responded to email, questions promptly and clearly, They are so flexible an a joy to work with. All of our guest complimented our delicious food and the exceptional service their whole staff provided! and best of all their prices are really the best I have seen for all that you get.
Thanks ladies for making our day one we will never forget! You made James and I feel like royalty on our wedding day :)
Everything about the food and bar service at our wedding was perfect. Ami and Cindy are absolute gems and responded almost instantly to all of my emails always ready to help, answer questions and solve any problems that popped up during planning. I changed the menu about 1,000 times and every single time they were completely flexible, sweet, and so very patient with me. We took no food home because our guests loved it so much there was none left. It was fantastic. We had the BBQ station, the Shrimp and Grits station, and the Big Garden Salad station, and we had guests asking us if we could get the recipes for some of their dishes. I have not one complaint about them. They made our reception wonderful!
Emily! Thank you for such a sweet review!!! You were as equally amazing to work with! Let us know what recipes you would like to have - we love to share them! We wish y'all many years of blessings in love & marriage! Ami & Cindy
Overall we had a wonderful experience with Big Girls Catering. The food was a huge hit among around guests which is exactly what we were hoping for. We've added some basic notes about our experience below. :)
Quality of Service:
Staff was professional and friendly. It was exactly what we were expecting!
Food was super yummy! We had traditional Southern type dishes (chicken tenders, cajun pasta, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, etc) at our wedding which was a huge hit with the guests. Several guests stopped us to complement the food choice. YAY! :)
They were always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. We usually heard something back from them within 24 hours. The only small issue we encountered with emails related to clarity. Sometimes we would have to send 2-3 emails before we clearly understood why something was the way it was.
They had a laid back sense of professionalism. They were always willing to answer questions and make last minute adjustments without being intense about it. Wedding planning is crazy so having someone who was pretty calm was a really good fit for us!
We felt that it was a good price for the taste and quality of the food. They worked to make sure that the buffet line was well stocked which was important!
They worked around our schedules for the initial food tasting which was nice. Wedding planning can be a stressful and BUSY time, but they adjusted their schedules to meet us on a Saturday at the local Starbucks. :) They also let us choose from different themed drink dispensers and name cards (rustic vs formal) for the wedding buffet. We thought that was a nice bonus!
Oh my goodness, you are too sweet! Y'all were wonderful to work with!! Sorry for the confusing emails - we'll work on that for future brides. Y'all picked a great menu and we are so happy your guests were pleased!
We wish you many years of joy, happiness & blessings!
The food was amazing!!! There were not any left overs!!! Big Girls Catering met us for a food tasting!! A few bites and we were sold!!! Their pricing per plate is the best you will find! We were very happy with the presentation and the wait staff! Thanks for making our reception amazing!!!
Bre! You are too sweet! We LOVED working with y'all! We could not have asked for a more laid back bride and groom. Your guests & family was so kind with all of their compliments. Our biggest compliment - they ate ALL of the food! You chose a fabulous menu. Here's to many happy years of joy & blessings to you both!
Big Girls catered our wedding reception at the Stanley House in Marietta, GA in October 2014. Ami and Cindy were GREAT, and the food was out of this world! We went with an hors d'oeuvres menu and had a pretty full spread of veggies and dips, fruits, their mac 'n cheese muffins, sweet georgia brown chicken tenders, french dip sliders, chicken salad (OMG their chicken salad is fantastic!) croissants. It was definitely a meal; nobody left hungry that day!
They did all of our food plus a huge dessert bar and it was all wonderful! The food was amazing and exactly how we wanted it. The dessert bar was delicious and all of our guests raved about how good it was. They are wonderful people to work with and affordably priced.
The buffet was set up beautiful. And had lots of colors to it! Perfect!
I am trying to come up with more events to have to use Big Girls Catering again and again. They were amazing to work with and the food was phenominal. My guests had nothing but great things to say about everything served at the wedding. Three weeks later and people are still talking about the food!
Ami and Cindy were great,friendly and willing to help in any way to make our day special ! Everyone raved about the food and great service !!
We worked with Big Girls Catering through our venue, the Stanley House. We chose a heavy appetizers buffet and our guests raved about the food. Even the grandmas loved the pulled pork BBQ sliders.
We planned out the menu months in advance and Amy and Cindi helped us decide which items would work well together and when to serve them.
On the big day, the staff also delivered a plate of the chicken appetizers (which we passed during photos after the ceremony) to my dressing room before the wedding when i realized I hadn't eaten in hours!
They also made up plates for us and waited on us at our sweetheart table.
Wish I'd been able to eat more, but my dress was so tight!
They did an amazing job for our wedding reception! Our appetizers were awesome, and the food was excellent. Our guests were still talking about it days after! They provided plenty of options and were very flexible in meeting.
Big Girls Events and Catering did a fantastic job on catering my wedding! They were so accommodating throughout the entire planning process. They are so polite and a joy to work with. Not to mention the food was amazing! My husband and I got married in the morning so we really wanted to have a "brunch" wedding and the caterer came up with a delicious and amazing menu!
Big Girls Events & Catering did a fantastic job catering my wedding this past June. Everyone commented on how this was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding - even the DJ! They were always extremely professional and considerate. They fixed my husband and I plates and made sure that we had time to enjoy the wonderful food before we went back to our guests. I would definently recommend them to anyone looking for fresh, quality food and great service for their special day!
Thank you Jenn & Kwesi! We enjoyed you, your family & wedding guests so much! They were so complimentary of the food! The DJ was awesome as well! Thank you for the kinds words. Many blessings on a wonderful marriage! We appreciate you!
Big Girls catering recently catered my daughters wedding at the Stanley House in Marietta. There was controversy with my family because my daughter decided on having fried chicken and they thought it would not be elegant enough. I have to say, everything was not only delicious, but the presentation was beautiful. We have received very positive feedback from our guests, and many have asked for referrals. I would definately refer them to anybody who asked.
Thank you so much! We truly enjoyed serving you and had a great time with everyone. We appreciate the kind words and referrals.
