Are you feeding your vendors

This may sound a bit selfish, but I figure if I am paying you to be here, you can take care of your own meal. My venue will feed one vendor free. However, on average, who pays for the feeding of the vendor, te vendor or the bride/groom? I don't want them to not eat and play terrible music. looking...

    We are feeding our vendors with ourselves. We're having buffet so to us it's just a few more mouths, we don't mind really. We decided this before we signed anything because I wouldn't like it if someone made me work without eating.

    I am feeding them... More than just not wanting bad service, I know if I worked all day and had to be around yummy food I know I would want a meal. I say follow the golden rule.

    @July that was what our first thought was, that's why we decided before we signed anything. I would hate to see pics of an unfed photog.

    My venue charges half price for the vendor meals, which is nice. But I am definitely making sure I feed my photographers and DJ (actually any vendor that is there for multiple hours). While you are paying them, they really do not take a break other than during the meal so I think they should be given a hot meal. They are working extremely hard during your day, and happy, full people always do a better job than a hungry vendor.
