It's been said that guests won't remember your vows but they will remember the food at your wedding. Think about it, it's one part of most weddings that someone is left feeling upset. While you can't please everyone, you can try and do your best to make your wedding catering a good experience.
1 GET A CATERER THAT YOU KNOW CAN DO THE JOB
2 GET A VENUE THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE THE TYPE OF CATERING THAT YOU WANT
3 GET A CLEAR MENU SELECTION
4 GET A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU CATERER IS PROVIDING
Particularly if the venue is not catering, you need to know if the caterer will also be responsible for:
5 GET A TASTE OF THE FOOD ON YOUR MENU
6 GET A COPY OF THE CATERER'S LICENCE/INSURANCE
7 GET A VIDEO OR PHOTOS OF PREVIOUS EVENTS
Ask to see any photos or videos the caterer has of previous work. These will hopefully give you an idea of:
8 GET A CONTACT LIST OF PREVIOUS CUSTOMERS
9 GET A LIST OF WHO WILL BE IN CHARGE ON THE DAY AND THEIR TEAM
10 GET A TIMETABLE FOR YOUR DAY AND HOW THE CATERERS WILL FIT IN
Brides magazine created this helpful checklist of questions to ask any potential caterer. Remember to check out at least three caterers before making a decision, after you have had time to look over their answers.
