The Right Questions for Wedding Catering

Your wedding is one of the most important days in your life. Wedding catering normally costs a lot of money and the catering takes up a large portion of this as they normally charge a per person rate. If you are looking to make your wedding catering special then there are certain question you just have to ask to make sure the company is up to the task.

Make sure they are not double booking you or trying to split themselves between two events. You need all hands on deck for your day and you want your catering to make sure you are their top priority.

Check they have the experience to handle your event. If you are having a wedding with 200 people and the catering company has only ever catered for events for up to 20 you know they are not for you. Don’t risk anything on your big day.

 

Are You Licenced and Are You Licensed to Serve Alcohol?

Check their credentials. The last thing you need is for there to be any legal issues on the day of your wedding. Make sure the wedding catering company is licensed and that they do everything by the books. Also, check they have an alcohol license. It can be more stressful to choose one company for food and one for alcohol.

Will You Provide a Coordinator for The Event?

If the answer is no, you know you will have to do a lot more work. Make sure they provide you with a manager or coordinator that will take charge on the day. Managing someone else’s employees is the last thing you need on your big day.

Chances are you know what you want. If they can’t provide anything close to that, look around for someone who will. Some companies work with preset menus and although that may be a good choice for you if you don’t know where to start, it is nice to have some leeway on what you are serving your guests.

Can You Accommodate Dietary Restrictions?

If you know some of your guests have allergies, make that clear from the beginning. There is a high chance the company can accommodate to all your guests individual requirements however if they cannot, you need to find someone who will.
