Birmingham Wedding info Sister lives in Birmingham and she just started planning her wedding for Sept/Oct 2011. I am helping her plan it. I am looking for suggestions and advice on places that do weddings, halls, caterers,ect. Have any of you been to a wedding that really stands out as having great food? I know I can count on my foodie friends in Bham to help me out with this! Thanks in advance :)

  1. Are you looking for a place for the wedding/reception versus a shower/rehearsal dinner?

    For catering, we had Kathy G for our wedding:
    I'm also a big fan of this man's cooking:

      I totally second Kathy G. My cousin had her reception at Kathy's place in Mountain Brook/Crestline area (at least that where I think it's at), and the food was wonderful. It was not a sit-down dinner but heavy hot and cold appetizers. There was such a variety of things to choose from. While the main food offerings were located in a central location, many were kinda scattered around the venue. It almost became a game to find a new display.

        She did ours at The Club, a similar sort of approach. I mention that just to say she can do it on-site at her place and off-site with equal ease and success.

        I am mainly looking for a reception place but welcome rehearsal dinner ideas as well. Thanks Big Daddy! Just went on chef Claytons website...I was drooling reading his menus, lol! Kathy G seems to be really popular!

      3. You should give the B&A Warehouse a look. The venue is in the warehouse district, and the food is terrific. I believe they can help with flowers, and photographers too.

          Great venue and their catering arm is good, too.

        2. Thanks so much for these suggestions. I've heard nothing but good things about Kathy G! B & A Ware house too sounds good too!! Keep em coming :)

          1. Check out the Avon Theater, it's a newer, restored venue in the Lakeview district (near 5 points / UAB) that has open catering rules and a nice feel, can be spruced up well, and not as expensive as some other places.
