A Tasty Pursuit

If your wedding reception is being held at a venue that does not provide catering, you should hire a professional caterer. Because a caterer is experienced in planning and working with large groups, they have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that a sufficient quantity of food will be available and that it will be properly refrigerated and/or heated on your special day.

  • Select your caterer between 9 and 12 months before the wedding.
  • Know the date/time, location, estimated number of guests and budget BEFORE reaching out to caterers.
  • Look for caterers that offer your preference of specific cuisines. Do they accommodate for special requests such as gluten-free, kosher, vegetarian or vegan options?
  • Always ask for a taste test of the suggested menu items.
  • Smaller parties, less than 100, are best served by a sit-down dinner while a buffet service usually works better for larger groups.
  • Be sure to ask your caterer exactly what services are included in the price quote.
  • When is the required deposit due in order to hold your specific date and when is the final balance due?
  • Your caterer should not only select, purchase and prepare the food, but also do the setup, serving and cleanup. Check your contract to confirm all of these items are on it.
  • Does the catering services being proposed include table linens, china, silverware and glassware?
  • When is the required deposit due in order to hold your specific date and when is the final balance due?
  • What do they do with all the leftover food?

Be sure your guests remember your special day ... make their taste buds happy by choosing the right caterer!
