Would you like to know how to choose the best catering service for your wedding? It’s simple! Don’t get married. Just kidding of course, we hope you’re incredibly excited about your big day. But remember, just relax and enjoy the experience. Planning your wedding doesn’t have to be a stressful as you might let it be. Just breathe! Hopefully, you’ve left yourself with enough time to plan everything thoroughly. If not…well, good luck!
In this article, we’re going to be focusing on wedding catering. This is arguably the most important aspect of your wedding (besides the stag-do and the dress of course). But on a serious note, the best catering service for your wedding, will be one that caters to everyone. Your guests will be travelling from all over to be with you on your special day. They’ll be standing around, taking lots of photographs, and will be required to be very patient. It’s up to you to reward their efforts with a feast to remember.
Where to begin?
Ask around with friends and recently married associates (they might have some good tips for you)
Review local wedding caterers on the internet, browse their menus and look at various prices
Contact your preferred venues and see if they have any recommendations
Ask your favourite restaurant if they’d be happy to cater for your wedding (you never know)
If you’ve already got a photographer, and a florist and any other professionals that will have significant contacts in the industry, tap them up for some tips
Look for reputable and dedicated wedding catering companies such as Dining Abode
That should be a good starting point for you. But it’s important not to rush into the process. Shop around and look for a few that jump out at you. Then, you’ll want to make contact with them, and gauge the response that you get from your initial interaction. This will give you a pretty clear idea as to who you’re dealing with and how passionate they are about what they do.
Schedule a tasting
Catering tasting is arguably the most exciting part about getting married. You get to go around and test food from a variety of reputable caterers, until you settle on one that suits you the best! This is a great opportunity to really find the quality caterers with the most experimental menus.
You’ll want to ensure that there is a suitably diverse menu, as you will likely have vegetarians and vegans attending. You can’t leave them out by providing terrible food for them!
This is the important part. You don’t want to rush in with a caterer just because you get a good feeling. You need to look at how their previous clients have responded to their service. Look at testimonials on their website and social media accounts, and then get in contact with any references if you’re able.
With enough time and research, you can’t really go wrong. Just be sure to include everyone and to not be too stingy! The food is for everyone and it’s important that you make sure that all of your guests are well fed and watered. A wedding is a long and tiring affair but is always worth it when the catering is on point! Enjoy and best wishes to you both.
