Tips for Choosing a Wedding Caterer
No matter what culture you’re from or where you live, food is an integral part of human gatherings, and this is no more apparent than at weddings. For this reason, you want the food on your special day to match your tastes while simultaneously wowing your guests. So how do you choose a caterer that fits the bill?
Start by creating a list of all of the caterers in your area, and then set up appointments with each. Yes, this can be time consuming – but it’s the only way to ensure you get the best food for the best money. Then, ask these questions:
What do you do best? Every caterer is known for something, and just like chefs, each has their own specialty type of food. Ask the caterer to put together a sample menu of what he or she feels the company does best and will work the best for the type of wedding you want. Then try it out!
What is included? Most catering companies provide servicing, but some don’t. Some caterers provide china and flat wear, while others don’t. Asking this now will help you determine the true cost of each option.
After your meetings, talk to your friends and get suggestions. Chances are, someone in your area has experience with the caterers you’ve met with, and these reviews will likely be more honest than what you’ll find online. Then, book your favorite!
