RESPONSE
From: Tooman
Response: Hello Carol, Yes, it is standard for you to feed those who work at the wedding. If you were to hire a band, it would be written into their contract that you would provide a meal for each band member. You are correct that you are paying them to work, but have you considered how long they will be working? The wedding planner and photographer will be there for many hours, the DJ for a few less. If you dont graciously provide them with a meal, the caterer will probably feed them in a separate area and you may still be billed. Many caterers plan to prepare 5% to 10% more food than the amount you guarantee and the vendors can usually be fed out of that overage.

The one thing you should not allow or provide is any alcoholic beverages for those working at the wedding. They are there to work, not to party. DJs tend to be particularly bad about drinking on the job.
