Wedding Catering For FoodiesWedding food should be inspiring. Your catering choice will be one of the things guest remember so make it count.
Food can take up a whopping 45% of your wedding budget. You can choose from a buffet meal, food stations, sit down dinner and/or cocktail reception.
If you have found a caterer you like do some research. Ask for references, read testimonials, and review the website.
How were their culinary skills put to use at other weddings? Look at pictures of presentation. Visit the caterer to ensure the premises are clean and tidy.
Organise a tasting session and meet the chef. Most companies will arrange for the bride and groom to sample the wedding menu privately giving you an indication of the quality of the food and the dining experience.
Opt for the freshest seasonal ingredients that are sourced locally where possible.
Be aware of guest’s dietary requirements such as cultural and religious food restrictions, vegetarian food, allergy sufferers, children and those requiring healthy options.
Caterers may include the hire of dinnerware in their price. You should ensure it matches your wedding décor and theme. Ask to see samples of tableware, glassware and crockery and inspect for chips, scratches and wear. Find out if table decorations are included.
Determine how your food will be served on your big day. Ideally there will be one server per ten guests.
Caterers may ask for guaranteed numbers such as a minimum of 100 guests. If you do not have 100 guests they may charge you a fee
When giving a caterer the final headcount include a meal for your entertainer, photographer and wedding planner.
Ask your caterer to prepare a “leftover basket” there will be lots of delicious leftovers that the bride and groom can continue to enjoy after the big day. Many will not get a chance to eat and enjoy all of the wonderful food at the reception.
