Tips for Choosing the Best Wedding Catering!
Making your special day stand out among the others can be a daunting task. In addition to selecting the venue that fits your personal style, the colors to fit your theme and of course, your perfect wedding day attire, your guests will remember the wedding food you serve more than anything. Wedding catering is becoming one of the most important aspects of planning and making the right choice for a wedding caterer can make or break your day. Here are some helpful tips in choosing the best wedding catering for your special day.
Referrals, Referrals, Referrals!
As with most professional services, finding the right wedding catering takes diligent research, starting with referrals. Ask your friends or family who recently tied the knot if they can pass along a referral for their wedding catering company. Also, if you attended an event where the food was stellar, don’t be shy in asking for the caterer information. Word of mouth travels fast especially with a wedding caterer, and you will be able to find a handful of great wedding catering options simply by asking around.
Make Sure they can Save Your Date!
One of the most common struggles in planning your wedding day is coordinating schedules with venues, photographers, and most importantly the company or individual serving your wedding food. Even with outstanding referrals from friends or family, the wedding catering company should be available for your chosen date! When making your selection, make sure you are able to get confirmation that the wedding caterer has enough time to prepare prior to your wedding date and has no other events planned that day.
If You Want Something Unique, Make sure they can Deliver!
Brides are getting more creative with their wedding menu selections. Even though a unique and personalized wedding menu can make your day that much more special, not every wedding caterer will be able to meet your demands for food items. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want, no matter how different it may seem. If the wedding catering company is not able to deliver your specific wedding food choices, it is okay to seek out a wedding cater who can.
Tasting is Key!
The only way to truly know if your wedding catering choice is the best fit for you is to set aside time to test their wedding food. During your visit, you should have ample time to customize your wedding menu based on your preferences and speak with your wedding cater about your desires for the big day. A wedding catering company that is not willing or does not have time to schedule a tasting (or two) may not be the best choice for your wedding day.
Selecting a wedding catering company or individual does not have to be a drag on your wedding planning. Instead, the process of choosing your wedding caterer should be an easy task when you have the right tools and will ultimately set apart your big day from the rest.
