The guests at your wedding will remember lots of things about your big day – the wedding dress, the speeches, your venue and the food. Did you know that the catering will likely be the biggest expense for your wedding?
Hear are some tips for getting the most out of your catering experience.
If you are thinking of doing the catering yourself, then think about hiring some staff to serve and clear up for you. It will be money well spent and will allow all your guests to relax and enjoy.
We recommend hiring a caterer if you plan on having more then 20 guests. You and your family won’t be able to fully enjoy yourselves if you are all running around ensuring your guests are all fed.
Start with your food budget and see which caterers fit your price range. It’s possible that you can negotiate with some caterers as quotes are usually ‘cost per head’, by substituting something on the menu.
A wide and varied menu is usually preferred, especially one that caters for special dietary requirements. If they don’t have what you want, then look elsewhere.
Don’t just take the caterers’ word– if any are unable or unwilling to provide proof of where they source their ingredients then you should have concerns. Check their references.
