If a caterer presents a dish that sounds mouth-watering but comes at a premium, then ask if they can substitute in a less expensive ingredient. For example, instead of filet mignon, see if they can use tenderloin medallions. Also be wary of out-of-season ingredients, and ask your caterer if local, in-season substitutes can bring down the cost.
