So what happens in the situation? Because of the size and it sounds preordered, do they still have to pay a %? Or is it just a we didn't go so we don't pay type of thing? Also that sucks you did all that work for nothing. Hopefully you still got paid for the time you put in no matter what though! Hopefully you got to eat the expensive food. Haha.

Can't they sue for that? I don't know how it works since i work in an ice cream store. But if a group or person orders something expensive and time consuming then they should pay a certain % or the whole thing. And since it's a function did they pay for reservations beforehand?

A lot of times in my restaurant when we book larger parties, they'll write out a contract and have a credit card on file to prevent such situations. I REALLY hope OP had something like this in place so they at least get paid for all that work.

Most countries actually have civil laws that deal with this type of stuff. They generally state something like "stepping away from a contract requires a valid reason". Doing so without such a reason, especially such a short time prior to the event, usually results in valid claims of damage compensation, the height of which can vary based on the specific country. [Here in Germany, you'd be able to demand the production costs for the food, including materials, manhours, electricity etc.,

Hopefully your efforts were not waisted, and the food was not thrown out. I'm sure shelters would have loved the food and then it could be a tax write off for the business.
