Your guests will definitely talk after your wedding especially about the food served on that day. Whatever is said, good or bad, it depends entirely on you. Of course, everyone would want praise showered upon him or her due to the great outcome of everything in the wedding; however, wedding caterers are a humongous contributing factor to ensuring that this happens.
The tips listed below are to aid you and ensure that you do not go wrong when that time comes.
- Not just chefs
If you thought that they are just chefs, then think again, caterers are more than meets the eye. Do not make a mistake of looking up chefs to higher for the catering services on that big day. Caterers have a great understanding of what is expected of them by the end of the day. They will ensure a lip smacking delicacy that will leave the guests wondering if there is more as well as keeping things on track by the great output in the services they provide.
- Own the menu
As much as the catering services will be in charge of the menu, you have to own the menu by giving one or two special touches that allow you to own it. Work hand in hand with the caterers to ensure that the reception venue has policies that will give outside vendors a friendly atmosphere, and do not go ahead of yourself on details about the reception catering without involving the caterers. This helps in avoiding last minute disappointments.
- Be safe than sorry
Familiarizing yourself with what the wedding caterers have done before, or the clients they have attended to is a key point to note. Details from previous performance will tell you what to expect, not forgetting that they will not only be in charge of food but also set-up and any other service in the reception area. This is their chance to prove they are worth your money and publicity, so it would be advisable to ask for a sample session.
This session is never charged and it gives you a chance to taste a sample of everything you will be expecting in your menu. That in mind, bringing a friend for this session is quite ok since the caterers will be trying very much to sell their services.
Get started with the right idea of how to make your day not just a day but a great day!
