A Question of Etiquette?

Today, we've decided to tackle something we hear discussed quite a bit on our message board and several others on the internet. It's suddenly hot question, "Do I have to feed the band or DJ?"
The short answer is this: Not only should you reserve meals for your musicians, but also for your photographer and perhaps a few other vendors as well. In fact, many wedding vendors stipulate in their contracts that meals - and breaks - will be provided. (Just add the vendors into your head count, if you're having a buffet.) Even if it isn't required, it's the right and gracious thing to do. What's more, your vendors are far more likely to do their jobs well if these basic human needs have been met.

Yes! I most definitely thing that you should include the DJ/Band, Photographer and Wedding Coordinator, etc. in your meal count. Come on, I think that is just common have people standing around and not be included in the celebration, is not nice at all! I know it all comes down to money, but still! My two cents deposited
