How to Select a Wedding Caterer
Check the Menu
When choosing a caterer, the couple should have a careful look at the menu. If they don’t like what’s in there, they could ask the caterer if they can customize a menu just for the wedding. However, this may cost the couple extra money.
Ability to provide Special Food
If the couple, or at least one of them, has specific requests for the preparation of food (e.g. because of religious beliefs), they should make sure that the caterer can deliver exactly what they need.
Check the prices of packages and extras
Typically a caterer offers packages for a certain set of meals. Couples should expect to pay more, though, if they request for extras such as champagne, wine or waiters and waitresses.
Specific needs of the guests
Is the bride’s mom allergic to shrimp? The couple should also take into consideration the specific needs of their guests especially those who are close to them.
Ask for recommendations
Not sure which caterer to choose? Couples can ask a married friend who may be able to refer them to a good one. Their friend may even be able to ask for a discount on this one.
With these tips, I hope you will be able to choose the best caterer for your wedding day!
