How to have the best catering experience for your wedding

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.

Your wedding is shortly approaching, and suddenly, it’s here! On the days leading up to your big day, you might find yourself panicking about some of the small details. And while sometimes a little hiccup may be impossible to avoid, we wanted to give you some pointers on how to keep stress at bay in the days leading up to your wedding…

Have a Spa Day! Could you think of anything better then being pampered before your wedding day? The pre-wedding spa day has become increasingly popular with brides and their bridesmaids. So put some cucumber on those eyes, get a mani/ pedi or even a special bridal Swedish massage. This will definitely help ease your mind before your wedding day.

Quality Time with Friends: Enjoy a relaxing girl’s movie night or night-in with all of your bridesmaids before the wedding. Laughing with close friends and family will always take the edge off.

Wake Up Refreshed: 8 hours of sleep before your wedding helps guarantee that you will have the energy for the whole day. Research shows that loss of sleep can manifest into irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness; basically all of the things you don’t want to be on your wedding day.

The Back Up Alarm: This seems like a given, especially for brides that are heavy sleepers. Do not let oversleeping be your biggest fear. Set a back up alarm for your alarm, just in case.
