What can I expect to see in your proposal?

Our event proposals itemize cost estimates per person for food and beverage in addition to cost estimates for staff and vat. Changes in the final guest count or added services as calculated on our proposal may affect stated cost estimates.


When do I need to decide on a final guest count? What happens if that number goes up or down shortly before or the day of the event?

Green Olive, Galway Caterers require your final guest count 10 days in advance of your event. This number will be used to establish ordering quantities for food, numbers of staff, etc. After this final number is given, we will make every effort to accommodate increases to your final count made within five business days of your event, but we cannot lower your final count for billing purposes after the first deadline.


Do you require a deposit?
